But if you needed removable storage this was the best solution available. IOMega was a company famous of their Zip and JAZ drives, which allowed to store large amounts of data on a portable media.

While the machine can boot from a Bernoulli Box it requires a device driver to uomega able to write data and use the utilities. The foil disc itself was kept in enclosed cartridge, while the drive had a fan, but not only for cooling – it was used to maintain positive air pressure inside drive’s casing making all dust particles go outside.

There may have been a 5MB variant – Wikipedia says so, but I’ve seen no evidence of it. Everything in fact is a Zbased system, supported with glue logic and proprietary chips made for IOMega.

Ships from and sold by Comet Enterprises, Inc. While the drives were very reliable their nature requires periodic cleanings. But after that Iomega preserved a good degree of backwards compatibility.

The cartridges were very robust and withstood abuse well, making them a pricey but ideal format for large scale bernouloi storage. Write a customer review.

This was far more expensive than a conventional hard drive, and more expensive than many PC clones at the time. Please help to komega this article by introducing more precise citations.

That’s pretty neat Mike. The cleaning cartridge on the smaller drives operates basically the same way. A floppy disk drive presses the drive heads directly against the media to read and record data; the Bernoulli Box spins the disc at five times the speed of a floppy disk and relies on airflow iomegq Bernoulli principle to draw the flexible disk close to, but not in contact with the begnoulli heads. The only reason I had them is because they had recently become obsolete at my Dad’s job when they all switched over to Zip disks.
