KOM Networks announces Transparent Optical Jukeboxes for ALPHA
Ottawa, ON Canada – April 23, 1993
KOM Networks is pleased to announce the availability of their OptiServer® II product for Digital's ALPHA/AXP systems which run OSF/1. Like OptiServer/NAS for VMS™, the new version makes optical disk jukeboxes (autochangers) totally transparent to applications, the native file systems and to Digital's Multimedia Rdb and SQL. This transparency is extended to automated libraries which contain Write Once Read Many (WORM), or a combination of WORM and rewritable storage media.
The disks within the jukebox appear as a string of disk drives. When a read or write operation begins, OptiServer II will move the appropriate disk into a drive automatically. Thus the autochanger is transparent to all activity above the device level of the system.
Digital's Alpha systems implement a high performance 64 bit architecture. The OSF/1 operating system is based on the Mach kernel and provides a UNIX™-like interface to application programs.
OptiServer II support most of the jukeboxes (autochangers) hich are abailable in the market place today. Support is also included for all WORM, rewritable, and multi-function 5.25", 12", and 14" optical disk drives.
OptiServer II is also available for Q-bus, UNIBUS and BI bus VAX™ systems, as well as the VAXstation™ 3100, 3520 and 3540 and MicroVAX™ 3100 systems. OptiServer II is also available for RISC/Ultrix workstations from Digital Equipment and SPARCstation™ and SPARCserver™ systems from Sun Microsystems running Solaris or SunOS.
