50+ years estimated archive life for all data files
The ODS-D77F Optical Disc Archive fibre channel drive unit works with the ODS-L30M PetaSite scalable library. The drive is part of the Optical Disc family of data storage products designed to provide an extended life cycle for storing and archiving all forms of audio-visual assets and data files for the very long term.
Deep archive for very long-term archiving requirements
Fully backward-read compatible, the Sony Optical Disc Archive drive technology is designed to provide read capability for all generations of optical disc cartridge media, giving you access to your content for 50+ years, whilst eliminating the need for a forced media migration due to media and drive obsolescence.
Reliable and robust large-capacity media
The drive unit handles a single optical disc cartridge that offers an alternative to LTO or traditional forms of data tape for the longer-term archiving of valuable assets. With a low total cost of ownership, the Sony optical disc cartridge offers very fast random access to all content and files. The innovative drive design provides for a ‘dual channel’ capability and, being file format independent, it can store your assets in a data file format. Sony optical disc cartridges are available in 300 GB, 600 GB, 1.2 TB and 1.5 TB capacity sizes, in re-writable and write-once formats.
Ideal for deep archive and near-online archive
The Sony Optical Disc Archive system is ideal for deep archive for very long term archiving, such as broadcaster archives where data tape does not provide the assurance or meet the need for write-once, very long-term archive requirements. It provides second copy archive at a remote site and is ideal for business continuity/disaster recovery, post house and production back-up and for video, film and stock footage archives or national archives. The system can also be used for news and sports clips that need to be near-online and as an on-line browse and proxy clip store.
