Calif., (September 5, 2002) - DISC Inc. (Nasdaq: DCSR), a manufacturer
of automated solutions for enterprise storage, today introduced the upgradeable
NSM3000U and NSM4000U archival storage libraries. The new upgradeable
models allow customers to scale their storage capacity up to four times
within the same chassis with field upgradeable modules.
The NSM3000U and NSM4000U models are flexible and robust storage solutions
designed to address changing storage requirements of many industries and
markets, including government agencies, graphics/multimedia, financial
institutions and medical imaging. The NSM series modular design architecture
allows users to customize their solution by configuring drives, media
slots, removable disk packs or adding a CapacityDoubler™ for double
sided media. NSM3000U models are field upgradeable to a capacity of 2.54
TB, while the NSM4000U models can scale up to 3.76TB per system.
“DISC’s modular series libraries offer a secure storage archive
that ensure data integrity with an availability rate that allows IT managers
a way to efficiently maximize storage without breaking the budget,”
stated Bob Riland, President of DISC. “In addition, with the passage
of the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA),
health organizations face new security standards that regulate how a patient’s
health information is electronically maintained and transmitted. The archival
capabilities of DISC’s modular series libraries are a perfect fit
for any organization needing to be compliant with the new HIPAA standards.”
