Data General Winchester Disk Subsystem Replacement

The AEM-9C is plug-compatible with the original aging Data General Winchester disk systems, while using ARRAID's proprietary solid state 'ARRAID Flash Drive' (AFD) to store data.  Internal AEM rotating drives (disk, tape & magneto-optic) can still be supported upon request.

No host system software or controller changes are required to install the AEM-9C.

The AEM-9C provides a complete bridge between the Data General Winchester disk subsystem controller and the AEM's internal data storage drives. Data General Winchester disk drives were widely used on computer systems since the late '70s and are still in use today on systems with specialized functions and custom software, making it impractical to re-host the complete computer system. Originally built as free standing floor models with removable disk packs, these drives were also produced in several styles of rack mount with removable packs, fixed - sealed media, or a combination of both.

While refurbished Data General Winchester Disk replacements have limited availability, refurbished Data General Winchester disk drives commonly fail within a few months resulting in system down time9C, with MTBF of 200,000+ hours and significantly more when using the solid state AFD.

Additional AEM-9C options include disk to disk backup, disk to tape backup, AFD network (backup & restore) and mirroring. No refurbished SMD replacement can match the reliability, features and customer support provided by choosing the AEM-9C to replace your aging and refurbished Data General Winchester Disk disk drives.
