Availability of the first storage systems with 100 GB BDXL technology Europe WINS. At the same time with the European availability of the first storage systems with 100 GB BDXL technology, the PoINT provides new versions of their products for the software support of the appropriate hardware (jukeboxes, Autoloaders and single skating works) software & Systems GmbH. BDXL is a new multi-layer format that disc Association was specified by the Blu-ray in June 2010. Nutra Ingredients is open to suggestions. It describes a triple-layer Blu-ray disc (BD) with 100 GB capacity for recordable (write-once) and rewriteable discs (BD-R and BD-RE), as well as a four-layered with 128 GB for BD-R. With the new 100 GB BDXL technology doubled the storage capacity of Blu-ray disc, which already successfully established variant in the previously available 50 GB in the memory market. This particular Blu-ray used disc-based Jukebox systems increasingly for archiving in professional IT environments. The legal requirements on the archiving (compliance”) force more and more companies to put this issue into their IT infrastructure.

The use of the new BDXL technology offers numerous advantages: so can you, for example, energy costs considerably and made an additional protection against data loss. “The new version 7.1 of PoINT Jukebox Manager supports the new BDXL technology and thus customers who purchase a BD jukebox system or an existing with new BDXL upgrade drives” want the ability to use this technology. The PoINT Jukebox Manager provides users and applications one standardized file system access (CIFS share) on a BD Jukebox available. It is the backward compatibility to 25 GB and 50 GB Blu-ray of course discs (both CD and DVD) ensured. Also the PoINT Storage Manager will soon be a BDXL-enabled”version is released, so that this technology can be integrated into a tiered storage concept.

The PoINT connects Storage Manager fast and reliable primary memory (performance animal”), capacity-oriented secondary storage “(” CAPA city animal “) and audit-proof” archive storage (“archives animal”) to a single three-tiered architecture. This inactive data in performance animals, usually through FC/SAS based drive systems is realized that transparent and automated on the CAPA city animal (E.g. realized with SATA RAID) migrates. Data that must be archived are automatically saved animal Storage Manager from the PoINT in the archives which can be realized by a BDXL-enabled jukebox for example makes sense. PoINT the PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, Siegen, is specialized in the development of software products and system solutions for the storage and management of data on all available mass storage devices, such as hard disks, magnetic tapes and optical media. A close cooperation with leading hardware manufacturers enables early support for new storage technologies. In addition to complete solutions PoINT its know-how in the form of toolkits offered that easily in other applications with their programming interface can be integrated. In addition, projected PoINT complete storage solutions and stands with his long and varied experience available.
