The Sage II was the single-user offering from multi-user system vendor Sage. The company provided an upgrade path to convert the Sage II for multi-user capability. Purchasers of the Sage II system supplied their own terminals for video and keyboard or purchased the optional Sage Terminal. Later versions of the Sage II shared the same smaller enclosure as the Sage IV, which was configured similarly to the Sage II. The Sage Terminal was actually a relabeled Qume 102.
By 1984, the company changed its name to Stride Micro and concentrated on multi-user systems based on the VMEbus.
