System/34

Redirected from System 34

The System/34 was a minicomputer marketed by IBM in the early 1980s. It was a multi-user, multi-tasking successor to the single-user System/32[?]. Like the System/32 and the older System/3[?], the System/34 was primarily programmed in the RPG II language. One of the machine's more interesting features was an off-line storage mechanism that utilized "magazines" - boxes of 8-inch floppies that the machine could load and eject in a random fashion. Borrowing mainframe features such as programmable job queues and priority levels, the System/34 ran quite nicely on 64K of memory.
