The AEM-8 replaces aging and refurbished HP CS/80 drives 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.

The AEM-8 will also replace any obsolete disk drive made by Bering Engineering.

No host system software or controller changes are required to replace a HP CS/80 refurbished drive with the AEM-8.

The AEM-8 provides a complete bridge between the host HPIB controller and the AEM's SCSI drives. These drives have been used on HP-1000, 3000 and 9000 computers in a variety of applications.

While refurbished HPIB drives have limited availability, refurbished HPIB drives commonly fail within a few months resulting in system down time. The AEM-8 is is provided as new equipment, allowing customers to utilize SCSI drives or ARRAID's proprietary solid state 'ARRAID Flash Drive' (AFD) installed in the AEM-8 with MTBF of 200,000+ hours and significantly more when using the solid state AFD.

Additional AEM-8 options include disk to disk backup, disk to tape backup, AFD network (backup & restore) and mirroring replaced with the ARRAID Flash Drive (AFD) CompactFlash (CF) media, and multi-volume (provides several HP 79XX disk partitions on a single SCSI media). No refurbished HP CS/80 drive can match the reliability, features and customer support provided by choosing the AEM-8 to replace your refurbished HP CS/80 disk drive.

Contact Arraid today to learn more about new drive replacements for aging computer systems.

  • Additional features and options include internal backup/restore, and drive sectoring which can allow multiple volumes on a single CF module.
