High-Speed, High-Performance NFS Optical Disk Jukebox Server


A powerful new NFS Optical Disk Jukebox Server has been announced by Plasmon Data Systems. Designed for demanding applications such as imaging, video and multimedia, the high-performance RISC-based server has a data transfer rate of up to 800KB/sec and includes advanced disk management utilities to maximize productivity.

Plasmon's Reflection NFS Jukebox Server includes 16MB of RAM and features an AIX operating system to provide open client/server computing; multiple users with servers of various platforms can have simultaneous access to the volumes of data stored on the jukebox. With support for Plasmon's complete line of Reflection multifunction optical disk jukeboxes, users can choose from systems providing from 10GB to over 1000GB of reliable, low-cost storage. For increased flexibility, both write-once and rewritable media can be used in the same jukebox. And since multiple jukeboxes are supported, jukeboxes can be added as needed to provide even higher capacities and enhanced performance.

Attaching the Reflection NFS Server to an existing NFS network is a simple procedure with the substystem's menudriven utilities. Novell's NFS Gateway for 3.11 and 4.0 can be used to make the server available to DOS and Windows clients as a standard NetWare volume. Once installed, the jukebox is transparent to the users. All operating system commands and application programs work exactly as they do with a standard hard drive.

The Reflection NFS Server is designed for networks supporting missioncritical business applications including CAE/CAD/CAM, desktop publishing, multimedia (including still-imaging and video) and 3-D graphics.

"To provide users with faster access to their data and images, and increased productivity, we're pre-loading Reflection-MANAGER! for AIX, our integration and disk management software, on the server's 1 GB hard disk," said Dave Kalstrom, executive vice president of Plasmon. …
