Their 8" drives were available with a couple of different interfaces
Some companies building Multibus and Qbus systems sold them. The
Multibus systems generally used Ciprico Rimfire controllers. They also
made a 80mb disk system for the Lisa called the DataTower.

Priam bought Vertex and survived into the 5" era
The priam 519 is equivalent to the Maxtor 2190
