Alliance Storage Technologies, Inc. Unveils a New Upgrade Program for End-of-Service Optical Data Libraries

Customers who want to stay with the cost effective and regulatory compliant optical data storage technology can now turn to Alliance Storage Technologies to upgrade their IBM 3995 equipment. ASTI’s regulatory-compliant systems preserve unaltered data for extended periods (greater than 50 years) at an exceptionally low total cost of ownership.

Colorado Springs, CO, April 3, 2012 — To assist customers in transitioning from unsupported IBM 3995 libraries, Alliance Storage Technologies, Inc, (ASTI), the primary source for professional data archiving solutions, is offering a new Upgrade program. This program makes it easy for customers to transition from legacy IBM 3995 units to new ASTI libraries. ASTI and IBM libraries use MO (Magneto-optical) media, making it possible to move current media to new systems without the complications and risks of data migration.

The Upgrade Program addresses two main concerns – performance and cost. Archiving capacities can be increased in a range from 220GB up to 76TB. Additionally customers can trade in their legacy systems and receive a discount on a new ASTI library. This provides even greater savings with the ultimate in investment protection allowing a customer to safely, easily and cost effectively continue to maintain their critical information on the current media.

ASTI libraries offer the best option for lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). After data is permanently written on the media, it no longer requires a constant power source to maintain the data. 50 year UDO™ media life also dramatically reduces media maintenance and decreases the frequency of data migration. This potentially reduces operating costs up to 75% (power and cooling), significantly lowering TCO throughout the life of the archive. This is in alignment with ASTI’s commitment to offer a lower energy footprint and make green technology part of the long term data archiving solution.

ASTI provides customers with a single point of contact for upgrading their vital storage assets; in addition they can trust ASTI’s Professional Archiving Solutions to provide secure storage of their critical information for many years to come. Today’s announcement showcases the tangible benefits of the scalable product line including Direct and Network Attached (DAS/NAS) Plasmon® storage libraries. For more information on the program please call 719-593-4425.
