RAID vendors come and go quickly, OEM each other's equipment, change
names, and other activities that seem aimed at simply obscuring the
market. No list like this could be complete and up to date for long;
I'll gladly take updates.

See http://www.disktrend.com for one good list of RAID vendors, and
http://www.sresearch.com/search/105431.htm for another.

The November '94 issue of _Advanced Imaging_ has a big article on
storage, primarily RAID arrays, with a pretty comprehensive list. This
table is distilled from that. Most of the info appears to be from the
vendors themselves. Almost all of these are fast/wide SCSI; a few are
Fibre Channel, NuBus, PCI or HiPPI (usually with IPI-3 command set). 
Most of these vendors have more than one model, only a few are listed
here. (rdv,95/1/18)

Most of these have some web presence; a Lycos search would turn up
their sites.

PC = Personal Computer (IBM compatible)
MC = Macintosh
PS = PC Server (Netware, NT et al)
NT = Windows NT
UX = Unix (generic)
PU = Personal Unix
WU = Workstation Unix & workstation servers
MF = mainframe
MI = minicomputer (AS/400)
SU = Supercomputer

FC = Fibre Channel interface (usually SCSI command protocol)
