Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

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.

Our Digi-Data 1600 tpi tape reader (Digi Data Corporation/Overland Technologies) with PC card, software, manuals and half inch tapes from 1985 was kindly donated by Rod Pawsey
