 In the middle 1980's, the Burroughs Corporation purchased the Sperry Corporation and formed the Unisys Corporation. Coincident with this purchase, the Medium systems line was renamed as the Unisys V-Series, with the V300 family derived from the B4955.   The first multiple processor machine in the medium-systems/V-Series family was designed, built and sold as the V500 (V510, V530 and V560).  The V400 series systems followed.  The V400 systems used the same hardware design as the V300 systems, except each 24" by 18" circuit board was reduced to a single gate-array significantly shrinking the footprint of the mainframe.   The V4x0 series included a two processor version, unlike the uniprocessor V300 series. In the middle 1980's, the Burroughs Corporation purchased the Sperry Corporation and formed the Unisys Corporation.

The V560 was introduced in 1989 with a list price of USD2,890,000.00 for a configuration that consisted of two processors, 40MB main memory (expandable to 160MB), two 8MB/sec Data Transfer Modules (expandable to four modules), maintenance subsystem and operator terminal.   An existing V530 could be updated for USD1,280,000.00.   MCP/VS 3.0 listed for USD250,000.00 for a five-year lease license (Electronic News, 1989-05-15).   The V530/V560 systems required 20 square feet of floorspace.
