Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) September 20, 2005
StorageQuest Inc. today announced its MSM 150 optical storage management appliance now has full support for the Plasmon Compliant Write-Once UDO Media.
"This is a very unique product capability which will provide users an important new option for archival storage applications. StorageQuest's implementation enables storage administrators to format Plasmon's Compliant Write-Once UDO Media with the UDF (Universal Disk Format) file system. Files can be written and read from any client on the network just like any other media type through the MSM 150. The storage administrator can permanently destroy files by issuing the new 'shred' command. This command will read the entire volume, and shred all sectors that are not used by the UDF file system, thus removing the raw data associated with the files that have been deleted. This leaves the actual UDF File system intact and the rest of the volume can still be used for reads and writes, but the destroyed files can in no way be recovered said Fred Bedard, StorageQuest's Vice President of Sale & Marketing." The Compliant Write-Once UDO media is designed for archive applications subject to regulatory compliance and for ILM environments that have very specific data retention and disposition requirements."
"We are pleased to have StorageQuest add support for the UDO Compliant Write Once Media" said Dave DuPont, SVP Sales and Marketing for Plasmon. "Many customers will benefit from the unique new features the media offers, namely the authenticity and longevity of True Write Once UDO, with selectable, auditable and absolutely sure one-time data shredding. No other storage technology can beat this combination."
