Alliance Storage Technologies' drives are engineered specifically for the demanding requirements
of professional archival storage environments. Extremely high duty cycles
provide you with reliable and long-term use. And rapid seek times and
fast read/write speeds ensure access to your valuable archive data in
Alliance Storage Technologies offers both Internal Drives for
use in automated libraries, and stand-alone
Desktop Drives for small businesses
and individual departments. Both models are available in first generation
30GB UDO1 and second generation 60GB UDO2 configurations.
Performance Optimized for Archiving: The access and read/write performance
of Alliance Storage Technologies drives is optimized for archive requirements. A 35 msec seek time
combined with a maximum sustained read speed of 12 MB/sec delivers very
fast random access to your data.
Simple Integration: Alliance Storage Technologies drives use an industry-standard half-height
form factor. They offer simple integration into robotic libraries and
computer systems as either an Internal Drive or a stand-alone Desktop
Unmatched Media Longevity: UDO media are designed for a 50+ year life
minimizing data movement frequency, virtually eliminating media maintenance,
and lowering costs.
Investment Protection: Alliance Storage Technologies drives provide backward-read compatibility. UDO2 drives can read UDO1 30GB media.
Flexibility: Alliance Storage Technologies drives support both WORM and Rewritable UDO
Media formats in
a single library or appliance.
