NETArchive Enterprise Archives

The scalable architecture of the NETArchive Enterprise libraries enables businesses and organizations to implement an archiving system with the required balance of capacity and performance while permanently preserving, securing, and accessing your valuable digital assets.

There are a variety of standard configurations from which to choose with a master library and an impressive maximum of up to 5 extension libraries and 18 drives. The master library integrates with other system components to complete the overall NETArchive solution including the Archive Management Software (AMS) and Storage Management System with RAID. The rack mounted system components are designed to minimize robotics and moving parts increasing long-term reliability and conserving IT floor space.

Designed to handle very large archives up to 1.6 PB of nearline storage with virtually limitless offline media management, the NETArchive Enterprise libraries and drives deliver groundbreaking performance. Drives connect with the Storage Management System (SMS) via high-speed fibre channel communications, offering the highest level of performance and reliability.

NETArchive ODA Media

The NETArchive True Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) optical media is extremely robust and offers an archival life estimate of greater than 100 years, making it the premiere choice for professional data archiving.

The NETArchive high-capacity 3.0TB ODA2 media cartridge contains 11 optical discs that act as one volume of mass storage enabling files to span multiple individual discs. The sealed cartridge eliminates the requirement for managing individual discs preventing accidental data or disk loss due to human intervention.

Individual optical discs feature a protective transparent hard coating that assures stable read/write performance, offers scratch protection, shields against electrostatic discharge, and significantly reduces interference and disturbance.nacartsplit

The heat-resistant polycarbonate cartridges feature a metal reinforcement bridge that provides mechanical strength and protects discs from internal and external load pressure, shock, and vibration. Each cartridge has a unique barcode for tracking purposes and is equipped with a built-in preformatted RFID chip utilized by the NETArchive system.

A Few Words from Our Customers...

Our Data Survived Hurricane Katrina

“We had to determine what information was retrievable among the absolute chaos of the first week after Katrina…We were able to recover all of the patient images off the Plasmon libraries…We are now primarily using the Plasmon’s UDO Archive Appliance for its long-term recoverability.” 
--Kenneth Allen, Health Systems Specialist, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care

HIPAA Compliance at a Reasonable Cost

“Ensuring that we could provide a PACS archive solution that helps customers meet HIPAA compliance at a reasonable cost was a critical requirement. This was guaranteed with the performance, longevity, and authenticity of the UDO Archive Appliance.”
