This Wang served as the database system for a business since
1984. (They also used it for word processing way back then.) The
main processor unit measures approximately 2 1/2 feet wide, 2 1/2
feet deep, and 3 feet tall. The disk units are a little smaller,
only 2 feet wide. Each unit holds one disk pack, with each disk
pack holding 300 megs. So, all together, the four disk units
provided a total of 1.2 gigabytes of storage space. The system
communicated with the outside world through a monsterous 2400 baud modem.
