        The VAXft 3000 was the first fault-tolerant system in the industry to run a mainstream operating system (VMS) and the first system in which every component, including the backplane, was mirrored. In the event of a power failure, the complete in-cabinet system was kept operational for up to fifteen minutes by its own built in power supply. The VAXft 3000 development team included (left to right) Clem O'Brien, George Hoff, Frernando Colon Osorio, Rich Whitman and Bob Glorioso.
