Hello all!

Anyone interested in 14 free disk sleds compatible with Alphaserver systems? (not sure which
models, but definitely the AS 12000). Completely free, just cover the shipping. I'm in the UK.

I normally deal with SGI systems, but over the years I've accumulated a whole load of x86 and
other disk sleds (Dell, IBM, Compaq) as a result of obtaining SCSI disks. Never got round to
sorting them out, so they're just taking up space now, need to get rid of them. But I'd rather
not just throw them away if someone here can make use of at least the AS-compatible sleds.
Full details here:


There are two images, the AS-type sled is on the far right in each image.

Or if anyone would like any of the other sleds then feel free to ask. There are 19 of the sleds
shown far-left in the pics (mostly marked Dell/Compaq/HP), about 30 of the metal sleds (center),
and just a few of the others (2nd from left and 2nd from right).

Anyway, I hope the AS sleds can go to a good home. Already sent two to a guy in Bulgaria -
it was he who suggested I post here to see if someone would like the rest of them.

Cheers! smiley

Hi All,
I've sent Ian here, as he has quite more of the AlphaServer type drive cages. I got two from these DS-RZ1DA-VW and they fit perfectly in my AS1200 (and visually they are the same (dark blue) in spite of being made for a x86 type system).
I've seen some AS being sold on ebay without drive cages so there could be someone interested here.

P.S. these should be compatible with AS4100, DS20 and probably some others...
