The computer collection contains Mini - and Microcomputers.
My largest machines are from Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC) and Silicon Graphics (SGI) and IBM. The other systems amongst others are from companys such as SUN, Hewlett Packard (HP), ONYX, Zilog and Cobalt. You can find information about them; their configuration, the specs, their history if known, as well as photos.
|Peripherals are a crucial part of a computer
system as they are devices used for input or output of information
to or from a computer. The peripherals section was added
recently and shall cover magnetic tape and disk drives
(fixed and removable ones) as well as pape tape readers
||My hard disk drive collection currently contains
over 700 disk drives, there's a bit of everything
between 14" and 1" drives.
The online exhibition will additionally contain drives which are not in the collection. It's supposed to become a continuously growing database with the idea of showing all kind of different disk drives built since the invention of the Hard Disk Drive by IBM in the fifties.
Information found in the database contains their history, if they belong to my collection, some specifications, and, what's important to me, photos of each drive, so that people can identify drives they have but seem unknown to them.
