Company - News - HBO puts 13 TB DVD Archive Solution in production

Haarlem, The Netherlands / August 25, 2003

DAX Archiving Solutions is pleased to announce the approval and acceptance of its 13 Tbyte DVD-RAM smartDAX archival system at HBO headquarters in NY City during the initial integration and testing phase over the past six months. These systems are now running in a production environment where HBO anticipates that many users will be able to take advantage of DAX´s unique software architecture. This includes the ability to view and use multiple DVD media – across multiple systems – as a single data volume on the network.

Working in conjunction with HBO´s software group, DAX software engineers have provided a seamless integration of the smartDAX archive with HBO’s data asset management solutions "Teams" from Artesia and have also created some special API configurations to enable users to have special privileges on the system.

“DAX Archiving Solutions has provided us with the flexibility we expect from a supplier in the current market. Their technology is unique and perfect for our environment. DAX´s engineers complete the package from DAX, they are willing to listen and know what they are doing.” according to Bruce Probst, Senior VP Interactive Technology at Home Box Office.

The smartDAX product line from DAX Archiving Solutions consists of extendable DVD-based digital online systems that provide data archival and retrieval in UNIX, Windows and Macintosh environments. It integrates hardware and software, and offers a powerful set of archiving features that are software transparent, cost-effective and secure. SmartDAX units can be combined to provide virtually unlimited TBytes of digital archive space. SmartDAX is the optimum combination of network-attached RAID technology integrated with DVD jukebox hardware and software.
