Kano Technologies has introduced its BLUE-WAV Desktop Storage system, a high-capacity solution for data-intensive storage needs.
Featuring Sony?s Professional Disc for Data (ProData) optical drive, the BLUE-WAV Desktop Storage system offers fast transfer rates and high reliability with up to 23.3GB capacity on a single-sided media cartridge. The BLUE-WAV drive is available in both internal and external models, and is ideal for professional data-intensive applications such as document and medical imaging, enterprise data management, graphics design, financial documents and official records.
The BLUE-WAV drive utilizes the blue-violet laser for a shorter wavelength which results in higher density storage. The shorter wavelength combined with a robust design and advanced optics results in sustained drive integrity and high data protection. Equipped with LVD SCSI connections, the drive has transfer rates up to 11MB per second.
?We have been shipping DVD desktop storage solutions for two years. But, now customers are demanding more storage capacity,? said Robert Young, National Sales Manager for Kano Technologies. ?We selected Sony?s ProData format for our next-generation desktop solution because of its high performance, high capacity and robust error-correction capabilities.?
The BLUE-WAV plug-and-play solution is simple to integrate into most environments. It is ideal for storing and archiving critical data on removable media where performance, reliability and long data life is essential.
The BLUE-WAV drive comes with Dantz Restrospect Express software for Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Retrospect features full-image back-up, disaster recovery and automated backup scheduler.
All models come complete with a SCSI host adapter, SCSI cable, SCSI terminator, backup software and one piece of ProData Rewritable media. Suggested Retail pricing for the BLUE-WAV drive is US$2750.00 for the internal and US$2995.00 for the external unit.
