120 MM DVD Media

While the 120mm DVD media format is very common in consumer products, ASTI’s focus with this technology is on professional data archiving storage applications. The pervasiveness and acceptance of DVD technology makes it an ideal choice for a centralized data archive that benefits from remote data collection or the physical distribution of content. Unlike UDO media that is housed in rugged cartridge, DVD is a "bare" media that requires unique handling and quality considerations. ASTI offers only the highest quality DVD media designed for the demands of data storage. When used in combination with D-Series DVD libraries, DVD technology provides a flexible archive solution.

D-Series DVD-RAM Discs are available in 9.4GB (pre-loaded single magazine w/ten 120mmdvdcasediscs or 4 preloaded magazines of ten discs), and 4.7GB (preloaded single magazine w/ ten discs, including manual disc cleaner and 4 preloaded magazines of ten discs). Single DVD/CD empty magazines are also available.

12 Inch Media

12 inch media has been the historic archival storage backbone for many enterprise content management applications across a wide range of industries. While 12 inch technology has been superseded by higher performance, more cost effective, media formats, hundreds of organizations continue to use their robust 12 inch media. ASTI provides multi-generation support for 12 inch technology starting from 2GB media originally launched in 1987, through the final generation of 30GB media released in 2000.

ASTI offers 12-inch optical media for use in legacy products. This archive grade media has been designed to meet the rigors of library use and provides a data life in excess of 30 years. 12-inch media is available in TrueWORM™ (Write Once Read Many) format. Capacities range from 5.6GB to 30GB. Stable glass media provides a minimum data life of >50 years.

Use the table to determine the type of 12-inch media. If the amount of storage the media holds is known, then that can be used to determine the optical subsystem. If a cartridge is available, the model number should be printed on the outside of the case.
