Verbatim Launches 100GB MDISC Blu-ray Storage Media
Verbatim introduces the new 100GB MDISC Blu-ray disc with an average lifetime of more than 1,000 years and high data storage capacity. Incorporating titanium for added longevity, the Verbatim MDISC Blu-ray disc preserves stored data by engraving the information into a 'rock-like' recording layer resistant to light, temperature, and humidity.
The protective benefits of the MDISC archival-grade technology was developed by Millenniata Inc.
Verbatim’s MDISC Blu-ray disc is compatible with any BDXL capable Blu-ray drive. Virtually all Blu-ray writers and players manufactured within the last 18 months are compatible with BDXL.
With no more than 1 failure per 100,000 discs expected after more than 1,000 years at 25C (77F) and 50% relative humidity, data can be reliably stored for centuries on MDISC in a typical home or office filing cabinet.
The typical lifetime of a hard drive is between 5-10 years, while Memory Cards, USB drives and SSD drives are between 3-10 years. In comparison, standard Blu-ray, DVD or CDs have an average lifetime of over 25 years and a Blu-ray or DVD MDISC is over 1000 years.
Verbatim’s 100GB BDXL MDISC is sold in a 5 pack (product number: 43834) for £89.99 or in single units (product number: 43833) priced at £23.99. A single-layer 50GB and 25GB Blu-ray MDISC and 4.7 GB DVD products are also available.
