The Unix-AG once owned a S27 with 8 CPUs, 80MB RAM, 7 SMD disks,
Exabyte, ... I know where the machine is now, including a complete set
of OS software. If you get the machine working, ask me for software.

Don't expect much of that machine. I could get only 200kB/s via the
Ethernet, the SMD disk controller could not handle more then 700kB/s.
(The same disks can deliver more than 2MB/s on a Sun 3/260.) That is
real poor for such a high end beast. I was really disapointed. But it is
nice to see an old 4.2BSD UNIX derivate with AT&T universe running on 8
CPUs in a SMP config.
