By CBR Staff Writer

Data General Corp this week came out with an innovative line of storage subsystems that combine cartridge tape and disk into a single unit. Designed for the mid-range and high-end of the MV/Family of 32-bit minis under AOS/VS, the Combined Storage Subsystem supports up to seven drives – they can be a new 234Mb Winchester, 21Mb quarter inch streamer, and 130Mb half-inch cartridge drive. The 21Mb is also available as a stand-alone product. There is also a new 14 drive storing 862Mb, reducing the cost per megabyte on high-end systems by up to 44% and the maximum storage by 37%. Combined Storage Subsystems start at $10,200, the 21Mb tape is $8,500, and the 862Mb disk with controller starts at $34,700.
