COMPANY - News - On-Line smartDAX Bravo XR Archive

HAARLEM, THE NETHERLANDS (January 25, 2006) - DAX Archiving Solutions, established supplier of digital archiving solutions, introduces its On-Line smartDAX Bravo XR Archive.

The On-Line smartDAX Bravo XR Archive solution provides an archive on hard disk and (backup) duplicates on labeled DVD media as it automatically creates copies of the archived data to DVD. Archived data remains instantly and random accessible. In addition, write-once DVD duplicates are created for archive, backup, disaster recovery and legal compliance purposes.

“With the introduction of the On-Line smartDAX Bravo XR Archive Solution, we take data storage beyond simply adding more capacity,” says CEO of DAX Archiving Solutions, Kees Machielsen. “Due to the exponential growth in electronic data flows, organisations do not only need extra storage capacity but they especially require efficient means for data retrieval which also have to be in alignment with increasing corporate compliance regulations.”

Similar to the existing smartDAX product portfolio, DVD optical technology guarantees permanent copies of all archived data on low cost, standardized and non-proprietary DVD media. It also provides a true WORM (Write Once, Read Many) medium which is essential considering todays requirements for unalterable, non-erasable digital archives.

Innovative is the combination of optical DVD Technology with the on-line part of the digital archive, a 1.2 Terabyte (scalable to any size) hard disk. This hard disk provides immediate and random access to archived data . The included DAXfs archiving software offers built-in HSM functionality and enables network-attached archiving in the standard drag-and-drop manner.

DVDs are backed-up and printed by Primera Technologys Bravo XR Disc Publisher. Bravo XR automates the process of recording and direct-to-disc professional printing of up to 50 DVDs at a time. The integrated 4800 dpi color printer ensures professional printing and labeling of DVDs. All supplies and finished discs are accessible entirely from the front of the unit allowing the Bravo XR to be placed on shelves, on or under counters or even mounted in a standard 19” 4U rack opening.

“We are pleased that DAX Archiving is integrating the Bravo XR Disc Publisher in its innovative backup and archival solution,” said Mark Strobel, Primera Technologys Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Bravo XR Disc Publisher, the On-Line smartDAX Bravo XR Archive provides a superior hard disk archival and optical backup solution that is truly WORM compliant.”
