Optical storage uses light to record and retrieve information. It's a reliable source of storage since the moving media is far from the read/write element, resulting in less wear with repeated use. Accessing data is slower than when using magnetic storage.
Optical data storage solutions include hardware that attaches to a computer or server to read and record data. Systems include various types of media, such as Magneto-Optical storage, DVD and CD. When working with optical memory solutions:
1. Use jukeboxes or libraries to access large amounts of optical data storage.
2. Locate a source to help recover and retrieve damaged data.
3. Find the best optical storage manufacturer for your needs.
Store and access data with optical librariesOptical library solutions and jukeboxes store and organize multiple CD ROMS or DVDs. They integrate with software that's installed on a computer or server. Users can access the software to easily access stored data.
Find optical data retrieval servicesOptical media can be damaged for a number of reasons. Damaged CDs, DVDs and cartridges need special attention to recover and restore data. Professional services can be utilized for data recovery and retrieval and can also transfer data to newer formats.
