The Amstore was built by Northern Computers Ltd, and was a 20MB hard disk for all Amstrad computers connected by a Nine Tiles multilink network. It allowed for a network between 1 and over 100 Amstrad computers to be connected to the same hard disk for sharing of programs, information files, accounts and word processed documents.
Amstore was connected through an Amstrad network, a buffer-insertion multi-user ring network. The Amstrad network could be used with any Amstrad machine and with IBM PC, Apricot, BBC and Apple Computers using Nine Tiles Simplenet software.
The Amstore Harddisk (and the Amstrad computers) are connected as a 'stations' to this network. There can be max 120 stations, max 3km apart.Date : 1985
