I picked up an Arraid AEM-1 system from work earlier this year when
they were junking them, and I plan on using it with a Xylogics 450
card, when (if...) I can get my Sun 2/120 restored. I don't know yet
if it'll work, but I'm pretty hopeful because it seems very
configurable and capable of emulating different drives. Uses a 50-pin
SCSI drive; maybe pluck a SCSI-emulator card in there and get an
SSD-drive, hehehe!
