This article is from the storage FAQ part1, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.
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. Other reviews are available at http://techweb.cmp.com/techweb/nc/612/612rev3.html, http://techweb.cmp.com/nwc/613/613rev1.html and http://www.byte.com/art/9509/sec11/sec11.htm. (firstname.lastname@example.org (Steven Hessing), 1996/3/30) 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.
