Sounds like it may be a later version (or just a different version) of the
DCE ApplicationDEC 500xP servers I have.  I believe those things came in a
"400xP" version.

I have no idea what they called the slots for the memory and CPU riser
cards.  Mine came with EISA SCSI cards, one-gig drives, 72 megs of RAM, and
SCO UNIX.  They ran 24/7 for years, and I think the third one is still doing
so in New York.
