1966 Univac 9000 Series Disk

1966 Univac 9000 Series disk cartridge prototype with a total capacity of 2.2 MB. Considered too expensive at the time, the technology used to develop this ended up as Univac’s 8400-series disk pack. Which held four platters in a large removable drop-in cartridge the size of a washing-basket – the first removable disk based storage system to reach market, in 1971.
