The MODCOMP Classic computers I scrapped at work a few months back all had primitive solid state drives by DATARAM (2MB fully populated). This was mid-1970's technology.. see here: http://www.storagesearch.com/dataram-bulkcore.pdf

These are often cited as the roots of modern SSD's. We used them from the early 80's up until 2013 and they rarely had failures. Usually it was only a single memory chip failing on a single board inside that could easily be swapped in minutes.
