KOMworx® Enterprise Edition and KOMworx® OptiStorm Edition automates data migration to regulatory compliant PDD storage media

Ottawa, ON Canada – February 13, 2004

KOM Networks, Inc., a global leader in archiving, storage management software and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solutions, today announced that both KOMworx Enterprise and OptiStorm Editions now allow users the ability to transparently migrate and/or archive any data within their network onto a PDD drive.

"KOMworx Enterprise Edition delivers flexible data protection policies that are crucial to preserving digital assets and information throughout the various data lifecycles," said Nancy Marrone-Hurley of the Enterprise Storage Group. "Organizations should look for open standards based ILM solutions in order to develop business continuance policies. KOMworx support of industry standard technologies and open UDF format allows for very flexible ILM deployments, eliminating vendor lock in that often occur with existing data preservation schemes.

"KOMworx OptiStorm takes the complicated task of managing a magneto-optical jukebox and made it simple enough for non-technical users" writes Imaging Magazine. KOMworx OptiStorm Edition combines all the advantages of optical storage while transparently retaining the access, convenience and functionality of hard disk drives. The capability of readily integrating into any application renders users completely unaware they are accessing optical disks or jukeboxes.

PDD technology, both PDD-RW and PDD-WO, is revolutionizing the storage industry with its greater storage capacity of 23 GB on one side of a standard 120mm optical disc. This 23 GB capacity is approximately 3 times that of MO, and 5 times that of DVD-RW. In addition to increased storage capacity, PDD technology offers a higher tilt tolerance, enhancing reliability for read/write operations and has a maximum write speed 2 times that of DVD-RW and 1.5 times that of MO.
