Building on the of UDO1 blue-laser storage technology, 60GB UDO2 offers double the capacity and a 50 percent performance increase over first generation UDO products. In combination with Plasmon?s flagship UDO Archive Appliance, Plasmon's customers can now consolidate and scale their archives from 1TB to over 76TB in a single Archive Appliance.
UDO2 provides the same data authenticity, permanence, and media longevity as first generation UDO1 but at an even lower total cost of ownership. UDO2 is backward read compatible with UDO1, enabling easy upgrades that extend system life. To provide a smooth transition for customers, in February 2007 Plasmon unveiled a UDO2 Upgrade programme that allows customers to purchase a UDO Archive Appliance or G-Series library with UDO1, and upgrade to UDO2 anytime during 2007 at minimal further cost.
