Founded in 1969 by Kenneth O. Mair, KOM Software began operations by providing high-performance components, back-planes, multiplexers and third party service for DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) hardware. KOM developed the first generation of multiplexers for DEC PDP-11 computer systems. In 1982, KOM embarked on a strategic change in direction by diversifying its resources into the development of the first Optical Storage Management Software. In 1983, after pioneering the integration of WORM (Write-Once-Read-Many) optical disk drives and management for leading-edge medical applications, the company recognized the benefits of this mass storage technology and redirected its efforts exclusively into this new field.
KOM Software has been a leader in Archive Storage Management since 1983, successfully supplying archive storage management solutions to over 10,000 government agencies, Fortune 100 and Global 100 companies.
