Digi-Data 1600 tpi tape reader
Digi-Data Corporation was founded in 1960 in Columbia, Maryland, and was an innovator and developer of performance archival solutions, provider of IP Communication products, and pioneer in the emerging data vaulting business. In the 1960s, Digi-Data delivered over 50,000 tape systems through OEM relationships with Compaq, HP and Data General. Shifting the focus to disk technologies, Digi-Data produced its first SCSI RAID controller for initial shipments in 1992. It incorporated five key patents with RAID technology to form the basis for the STORM (Storage On Redundant Modules) architecture serving large corporate data centers.
