I think this is unfortunately just a name clash. SGI's first generations
of machines was called "IRIS" and ran an operating system called
"GL2-WX.Y" where X.Y is a version number. GL-W2 is a System III unix
port. The graphics subsystem was called "IRIS Graphics"

Convergent rebranded SGI's machines. It is not unheard of:
