UNIX Based Jukebox Management Software
Ottawa, ON Canada – September 28, 1998
KOM Networks is pleased announce the latest release of our industry-leading product, OptiServer® 5.0, an advanced Optical Storage Manager designed for UNIX platforms. OptiServer® incorporates the expertise accumulated through 15 years experience and over 6000 site installations of KOM storage software products.
OptiServer® emulates a magnetic storage interface, making optical drives and jukeboxes appear and behave exactly like HDD (magnetic) drives. No other optical software is integrated at the device level, and only KOM Networks' OptiServer® is 100% compliant with the UNIX native file system (UFS). No proprietary file system is necessary.
OptiServer® 5.0 has a new advanced Graphical User Interface (GUI) for an easy and simplified installation and which gives the user a more powerful tool to control the optical device. In addition, OptiServer® 5.0 presents a more robust, "power failure safe" interface, allows remote administration and offers a full suite of library functions for software developers.
Some of the advanced features included in OptiServer® 5.0 Optical Storage Manager are:
- Support of all major brands of 3.5", 5.25", 12" & 14" MO rewritable and ablative WORM and CD jukeboxes and standalone drives.
