With the transition of the supply of UDO media from the Verbatim distribution channel to the ASTI distribution channel, users of UDO media should rest assured as MKM, a licensed manufacturer of UDO media, will continue all manufacturing operations related to UDO media, thus ensuring a readily available supply of UDO media for users of Plasmon branded Archive Storage solutions.
Last week ASTI also announced today that it has joined the Optical Archive Group (OPARG), a professional association of optical archiving specialists created by Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (Verbatim), Pioneer, and Victor Advanced Media Co. Ltd. (VAM). OPARG is promoting the benefits of long-term data archiving on optical media and drives.
Back in 2009, Alliance Storage Technologies re-established manufacturing, engineering, software development, distribution and world-wide support and maintenance services for Plasmon UDO-based Archive Appliance and G-Series library solutions.
UDO is a blue-laser-based optical media rated to last more than 50 years. UDO's material properties and hardened plastic encasement support media handling and removability without causing damage to the stored information.
