NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Storage Disk Archive Corporation will show three new storage density products at BVE 2015 (Stand M20) including support for a new generation of archive specific 8TB disk drives for deep archive storage on the ALTO Offline platform. The new disk drive technology is optimized for long retention times and low throughput and offers four Petabytes per rack cabinet. Also new to BVE will be a hybrid cloud storage set-up that combines the strengths of a high-yield on-premise appliance with a copy of Last Resort in the Cloud. That innovation will be ideal for DPP/AS11 file-based set-ups, it is said. An EX-60 Storage Expansion Chassis for the ALTO Archive and Content Library will also be on show.
