There were VAXBI SCSI cards available at one time, but I have never
used one, and I can't recall the vendor's name. My recollection was
that MSRP was $10K for either MSCP _or_ TMSCP, $20K for the firmware
that did both.

I'd love one, but I think you'd just about have to find a machine that
already had one inside.

I _think_ they were never popular because people typically had a cluster
and HSC storage boxes or locally attached disk on a KDB50 (my 8200 came
(to my employer) used in 1989 for about $12K w/KDB50 and we threw on an
old RA81).

Last thing I did to it was try to get either a DEBNI or DEBNT working.
No dice. It was enough months ago that I forget what was up.
