-----Original Message-----
I am looking for just disk "tower" (new or refurbished) that can host up to
6 disks with Ultra wide scsi (not differential scsi) to connect to ultra-1
or ultra-10 with the ultra scsi card. I am looking for more storage space
for our machines. Since the disks are cheap on the market with prices
falling, I do not want any disks mounted in the tower. I need disk trays
though, to mount disks when I get them from Internet.

Are there any vendors selling such ultra scsi disk towers (except Sun, too
expensive to deal with) ?
