KOM Software announces OptiTape for optical tape technology (WORM)
Ottawa, ON Canada – May 14, 1992
Now you can not only write your archival records to tape, you can actually get them back again.
With optical write-once tape your data is safe for years and each twelve inch reel holds a massive 1,000 gigabyte (yes, gigabytes). A single tape could hold 16 million files each 60K bytes in length.
And if you were wise enough to write your data with KOM's OptiTape® product you could position your tape directly to any one of those file in just seconds.
But the truly amazing thing about OptiTape® is that it doesn't use any disk storage. So you can dismount your tape at any time and put it in the safe, or transport it to a new location.
You might be able to emulate the speed of OptiTape® with a tape library system (if you can find one that supports optical tape), but at what cost? If would take many hundreds of megabytes of magnetic disk to build an index for just one tape. With OptiTape® you can have as many tapes as you like and as many drives as you like.
OptiTape® comes with its own optical tape device driver and an application program that reads and writes files and automatically sequences requests from multiple users.
You can update a file and OptiTape® will let you list and retrieve previous versions. You can even delete a file or give it a new name. And because optical tape is a write-once medium you can time travel into the past and recover files deleted by mistake.
So give us a call. We may already have solved your data archiving problems. With optical tape you can keep your data longer and get it back when you need it.
