If the drawing is electronically stored, it can be retrieved from the optical storage system. If it is a blueprint, the electronic tag pinpoints its location in the archives.
Before considering these developments, it's helpful to briefly describe some of the key issues affecting the performance of an optical storage system, such as MO.
IRVINE, Cal.--Pinnacle Micro has signed a distribution agreement with D&H to market and sell its optical storage systems. D&H will offer Pinnacle Micro's Recordable CD systems and its complete 3.5- and 5.25-inch rewriteable optical product line, including Pinnacle's newest Apex 4.6 Gb drive, through thousands of resellers and retail channels nationwide.
Q What should users of optical storage systems be most concerned about?
The present design permits focusing the blue light to a spot having half the diameter of IR light used in current optical storage systems. This promises to quadruple the areal density at which data can be stored.
Phase-change optical storage systems accept Panasonic's WORM media, which hold 940MB of data, and phase-change discs, which store 1 gigabyte of data on a single cartridge.
However, it wasn't until the Japanese solved the problem of optical storage systems based on bit-mapped images that present day WORM technology came into use.
The government's data storage needs are astronomical, says Brian Houston, vice president of engineering Hitachi Data Systems Federal, a company that develops optical storage systems. One exabyte could hold a hundred thousand times the printed material, or 500 to 3,000 times the content of the Library of Congress.
This approach enables firms to significantly lower their distributed storage management administration costs while migrating static data to lower-cost nearline or offline optical storage systems. IDC has also found that this approach also enables IT management to reclaim a large amount of their current online storage investment.
The Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) software provides users with a cost-effective solution to adding expensive online hard disks at the PC level by providing online storage and data management using less expensive tape and optical storage systems. It also automatically backs up each client or PC in a network, preserving all files in a central library, which can be located off-site if desired.
Processing of images necessitates scanners, optical storage systems and telecommunications planning.
Historically, companies have been burdened with only one choice: costly optical storage systems that require additional hardware.
