I think the objection was to the SCSI part of the designation. How 'bout:
multi-port data storage device
multi-harber data dock
multiply-ported data carrier
data bay with multiple harbers
sitting on a dock of the bay.....
I'll be searching for my data today.....
multiple paths I roam...
trying to find my data a home...
