Filemark offers its customers the option of utilizing optical storage as part of an integrated COLD and Imaging solution.
John Bernard, President Filemark stated, "We selected KOM Networks because of their commitment to the use of the native file systems. We do not want to get locked into other vendors proprietary file systems. In addition, they have managed to take the complicated task of managing optical storage and made it simple, while maintaining a full set of features". Ben McCullen, V.P. (Sales) of Filemark, commented, "KOM Networks superior technology and service make it a clear winner". Richard Game, V.P.

Filemark Corporation is the technology leader in information archival, retrieval and distribution solutions. They have recently announced SMARTi v3.0, a COLD solution, including a breakthrough feature: Intelligent File Management (IFM) bundled with its SMARTi COLD solution at no extra cost. IFM is used to proactively age and disburse COLD and Image data from on-line, to near-line, to off-line at the report level. Without IFM, data has to be moved manually or by a separate hierarchical storage management (HSM) application. HSM products manage all reports simply as files. IFM sees into files, providing users the flexibility of disbursing based on content, not simply age.

KOM Networks develops and markets software product such as optical jukebox management software (OptiStorm NT, OptiServer UNIX), network back-up (OptiBac) and Storage Management solutions.
