Sooooo dusty

This is a bit of a tricky puzzle, because you have to have seen this specific piece of hardware before to get it. But I was so fascinated by just how dusty this thing is that I wanted to share it. This is a part from a system that just came in after being in service for a very long time. Like, 20 years? It could use a thorough dusting, but would likely be fine for several more years. Scroll below to see what this is.

This is a controller from a Model 20 disk array. Along with the crazy amount of dust, I also like those angled slots for the memory. They were a necessary bit of engineering to fit the controller into the mounting slot in the shell of the array.
