CeBIT 2006

23. Plasmon

Plasmon manufactures what are undoubtedly amongst the most advanced and reliable archival solutions available today. They use their own Blue Laser based technology called UDO (Ultra Density Optical) which allows them to deliver a capacity of 30GB currently, on single layer media. 60GB, also on single layer media using a 0.85 micrometre aperture lens, will be available soon. The media is manufactured by Plasmon and Verbatim. It is used in their archival storage range of products and optical libraries, and along with their Raidtec RAID solutions, offer one of the most robust solutions for long term storage.


The UDO Archive Appliance

On display at this year's CeBIT, was Plasmon's new UDO Archive Appliance which combines the performance offered by RAID along with the reliability and security of UDO. It effectively provides a solution in cases where industrial regulations must be met, such as in the medical or financial sectors, or where strict corporate policies need to be enforced, for long-term document retention.

The UDO Archive Appliance is the integration of the UDO technology, which provides the most reliable method of archival storage being far superior to magnetic-based solutions, a RAID cache for high performance access to records, and a NAS server for network access control to the archive. There are several configurations available, depending on the capacity required, ranging from 960GB up to 19TB.

There are also a number of case studies available from Plasmon (http://www.plasmon.co.uk) covering medical imaging systems in the Healthcare industry.

Plasmon also collaborates with several partners to deliver a variety of software solutions. One of these companies is KOM, Canadian based who were present at the Plasmon Booth. KOM has developed a product called KOMWorx, which provides a Windows GUI management interface for managing Plasmon's UDO Archive Appliance. It transparently handles all requests and makes the UDO Archive Appliance look like a single, ordinary disk device. However, it also implements policy management so that documents, images and any other types of records, cannot be tampered with or deleted. Main application is in the Healthcare and Financial Services Industries.
