Offering 9MB/sec. write speeds and 11MB/sec.second read, the Sony ProDATA media can store up to 23.3GB of data or the equivalent of up to 2,300 x-ray images (at 10MB per image) onto durable, random access media. The new TeraCart PD is available with both SAN and NAS support, offering the flexibility to start with a single cabinet and expand to as many as eight libraries for capacities reaching hundreds of terabytes. Using pass-through and infrared communications, the libraries can be managed as a single physical unit.
Produced for high-performance professional imaging applications, these new blue laser libraries offer approximately more than four times the capacity of red laser optical storage solutions. A flexible, standards-based solution, the TeraCart PD can be integrated as an essential part of an organizations' overall solution to gain compliance with government regulations including HIPAA.
An alternative to tape libraries, a single bare media Professional Disc for DATA disk can hold up to 23.3GB of data and the libraries can be equipped with one to six Sony ProDATA drives. Acting as what the manufacturer describes as a flexible, scaleable, high-performance solution, the TeraCart PD is also a solution for email archival, enterprise content management, multimedia projects, graphic design, and audio/video editing and authoring.
ASACA's expanded line of TeraCart libraries integrating Sony's professional-grade blue laser technology drives and ProDATA media are now available in three scaleable models; the AM250PD, the AM750PD, and the AM1450PD, offering up to 5.8TB, 17.5, and 33.8TB storage respectively. ASACA's TeraCart AM Series with Sony blue laser and ProDATA technologies are expected to have a starting price of $30,000. Sony's 120mm rewritable and write-once Professional Disc for DATA media stores up to 23.3GB on a single side.
