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.
The DRS M45 is a DOS based computer. DRS M45 personal computer operating system MSDOS 33, executed on the Intel 80286, with 1 MB RAM, with 4 free link extension.
The ICL computer networking fully implements the seven-level OSI model (Open Systems Interconnection, the open systems interconnection) and meets the Standard.
Our working system is complete with the ICL DRS keyboard and the ICXL ergoPRO VE15C Monitor
