The ICL DRS was a range of departmental computers from International Computers Limited (ICL). Standing originally for Distributed Resource System, the full name was later dropped in favour of the abbreviation.

During the mid 1980s separate Office Systems business units had produced a disparate range of products including IBM-compatible PCs such as the PWS (an PC AT Clone), small servers branded DRS, and various larger Unix servers sold under the Clan range. A rebranding in late 1988 pulled these together under the DRS brand, with a consistent mid grey and peppermint green livery.
The ICL division responsible for these systems eventually became part of the Fujitsu-Siemens joint venture.
