The interface was DSSI, which appears to have been loosely
based on SCSI (except more tightly specified than SCSI
was at the time). It allowed a sort of "poor-man's cluster"
to be built without having to purchase expensive HSCs etc.

Search for "RF7" and "RF3" on Manx (vt100.net/manx)
and you'll find some stuff on the net. I've sent a
load more stuff to the Manx maintainer recently so
I expect a bit more will crop up soon.
