An Industry Standard for Cost-Effective Backup
Information is the lifeblood of any business. And for small to mid-size organizations that store their data on single PCs, servers and local area networks, protecting that information is a vital concern. Hard drive failures, accidental deletion and power surges are only a few of the very real threats that can result in catastrophic data loss.

Tape drives have long been the choice of businesses for backing up important data. However, as the capacities of today's desktop and server hard drives continue to expand, the performance demands placed on these solutions is also increasing. And while high-end solutions provide faster performance, they often come at a price that small and mid-size organizations can't afford. These businesses need cost-effective, reliable backup solutions that can keep pace with their expanding storage needs.

Sony recognizes that today's small and mid-size businesses are tomorrow's enterprise organizations, and is committed to providing cost-effective backup solutions that set new standards for reliability, capacity and performance. Sony's DDS technology is setting these standards today, providing customers with efficient, cost-effective solutions for all their storage needs.

Growth in Storage Demands New Solutions
With the exponential increase in the creation and distribution of computer data, particularly in corporate network environments, demand for high capacity, low cost storage devices has also increased. Organizations of all sizes, with data intensive applications, require a variety of data storage solutions including fast on-line access, convenient near-line access, and secure data backup capabilities. Advances in tape storage devices, including performance and capacity increases, have resulted in the application of various tape formats to these specific data storage requirements.

Automated Storage Handling with Tape Autoloaders
With the increased use of tape drives to deliver fast, cost effective storage, automated tape handling devices have been developed to extend the range of storage capacity. Additionally, tape autoloaders provide automated, unattended operation for network storage and backup.

How does the DDS Autoloader function?
Essentially, a tape autoloader is a device incorporating single or multiple tape drives along with a robotic mechanism for retrieving and loading tape cartridges into the drive. Previously recorded data can be accessed or new data can be written, all without the intervention of the user to perform the loading or unloading of tape cartridges. This concept offers increased storage capacity over a single tape drive mechanism, while providing low cost, automated storage.
Autoloaders provide economical storage by lowering the cost per megabyte of data stored on a system. Since multiple tapes can be stored in a single autoloader, the cost per megabyte is amortized over the cost of the autoloader and the media contained in it. The more cartridges used in the autoloader based on the maximum capacity, the lower cost per megabyte for the total solution.

Are you reaching the limits of your online storage capacity?
There is no limit to the information today's companies can generate. Yet the capacity limits of the systems that manage this information are often quickly exceeded. Adding an extra desktop or server hard drive is a short-term solution at best, as the capacity needs of individuals and organizations continue to multiply. And while many storage solutions provide routine backup capability, they're not designed to deliver convenient, easy access to the information and data-intensive applications used in business every day.

Sony leads the way
To meet this demand, Sony created one of the world's first 5.25 inch, rewritable Magneto Optical (MO) disks in 1988. The first removable storage solution to rival the performance and convenience of a hard drive, Sony's MO technology delivers virtually unlimited capacity and superior reliability at a low cost per megabyte. By combining magnetic and optical laser technologies, Sony's MO drives write and read data on optical disks at incredibly high speeds. Sony's rewritable MO drives and libraries are a cost-effective, expandable and reliable storage solution for any organization with growing capacity needs-providing more than 10 million write, read, erase and rewrite cycles on the same disk. Today, Sony is the international leader in rewritable optical solutions, with an estimated market share of about 70 percent.

A vision for the future
With more than 24 years of experience in developing innovative, removable storage solutions, Sony is a choice you know you can depend on today-and the only MO vendor that provides a clear vision of what tomorrow's MO solutions will look like. So you know that the Sony storage solution you buy today will meet your capacity and performance needs tomorrow. Once again, the answer is Sony.
