Aug 09, 2010 – LITTLETON, CO (August 9, 2010) Open Source Storage, a leading developer of Network Attached Archival products, today announced support for DISC Archiving Systems, Inc. family of Blu-ray archival storage library automation technology products.
The addition of Blu-ray optical technology helps satisfy the growing demand for Open Archival Solutions for small business through the enterprise, providing customers with the scalability to start small and grow in concert with their storage requirements. The combination and certification of the DISC Blu-ray technology with the award-winning OSVault™ Network Archive appliance continues to drive the overall value proposition and ROI for both Open Source Storage and DISC customers, providing the confidence of complete open network compatibility, functionality and full interoperability in the enterprise.
“Certification of our Blu-ray storage automation technology on the OSVault platform as part of the Open Archive Initiative is very attractive to our customers,” said Mark Brown, Vice President of Sales for DISC Archiving Systems North America. “More importantly, DISC’s commitment to open standards assures our customers of long term data preservation on Blu-ray optical media.”
“DISC’s commitment to full and open interoperation between vendors parallels our own view that manufacturers should offer complete open solutions to their customers,” said Chuck Larabie, Vice President of Open Source Storage. “We are pleased to have this opportunity to collaborate with DISC and pair our shared visions of open network archives. We have made it our mission to deliver affordable and compatible network archival solutions, dispelling the myth that enterprise-class solutions are complex and expensive to acquire and operate.”
The OSVault™ Network Archive Server eliminates the need for costly proprietary archival software to control near line systems by delivering a complete appliance based solution, which transforms the near line system into a network attached share at prices beginning under $5,000.
