Plasmon today announced the release of an additional library to the 5.25 inch Magneto-Optical (MO) G-Series library family.
The Mid-Sized 5.25 inch Magneto-Optical Library is designed to address data-intensive archival applications found in environments demanding high reliability 24 hours a day 365 days a year. These applications can be found in industries such as financial, medical imaging, document imaging, government, and insurance. Configurations range from 582GB (64 slots with 2 or 4 drives) to 946 GB (104 slots with 2 or 4 drives).
Based on a revolutionary architectural platform providing enhanced levels of performance, reliability and scalability, Plasmon's Mid-Sized G-Series Library supports the Sony 9.1GB-14x MO Drive and both rewritable and WORM (Write Once Read Many) media. The Library features hot-swap drives to maximize data availability and brushless motors for increased performance, reliability and life. Plasmon's G-Series Libraries are specifically designed to optimize today's 9.1GB-14x drives and tomorrow's Ultra Density Optical (UDO) optical drive and media technology.
Because of the limited storage space available in IT data centers, Plasmon's Mid-Sized G-Series Libraries are designed for volume efficiency. The Mid-Sized Library has the smallest footprint in the industry among competitive models and is available in a stand-alone unit or as a 19-inch rack mountable library.
``The Mid-Size Library solidifies our Magneto-Optical G-Series product line,'' said Kelly Scharf, Director of Product Management in the U.S. ``Based on customer needs, we have added optional features such as a bar code scanner, remote management and Fibre connectivity to keep libraries continuously operating under the most extreme environments. As a result, Plasmon offers a solution to solve current data intensive application needs as well as such applications in the future.''
ISV library management is also available for the Mid-Sized Library from leading vendors such as ADIC, BakBone and OTG. For a complete listing, contact Plasmon.
With the addition of the Mid-Sized Library, Plasmon's G-Series products range from 582GB (64 slots) to 5.8TB (638 slots) in capacity and from 2 to 12 drives. All models of the G-Series incorporate 14x - 9.1GB Magneto-Optical drives from long-time partner Sony.
