PetaSite Optical Disc Archive scalable library
The ODS-L30M is a 30-slot master library unit that forms the basis for the PetaSite Optical Disc Archive scalable library for broadcast, post production, editing and desktop operations. The unit holds up to two ODS-D77F Optical Disc Archive fibre drives, a maximum of 30 cartridges, and a built-in robotic mechanism in a 7U, 19-inch rack-mountable chassis.
The ODS-L30M forms the basis of the PetaSite Optical Disc Archive that is easily scalable with ODS-L60E (drive and cartridge) and ODS-L100E (cartridge only) extension units. A total of five extension units maximum can attach to the ODS-L30M to make up a single 42U library offering a maximum 535 cartridges (802 TB), depending on the extension units used.
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.
