InfoServers were boot-load servers that ran a very rudimentary
system called ESS, which in turn was based on DEC's VAXeln runtime
kernel for embedded systems. It was designed to efficiently offer
disk (cd-rom and harddisk) and tape devices to the network, and
used DEC protocols called LAD (LASTport/disk) and LASTport/tape
for access to those "shared devices".
