Globalstor GS Series Optical Drives
Globastor Data Corporation leads the industry in low cost, high performance, industry standard optical storage.
Until recently, capacity was the most important issue when it came to large scale storage. However, once huge digital audio/video and document imaging files became popular, everything changed. Rapid random access and data availability became critical to organizing the work efficiently. Transporting these files became an issue making removable media a prerequisite.
Globalstor Data’s GS series optical disk drives are the ultimate reflection of your current needs. The GS 5200 provides the fastest data transfer among 5.2GB ISO standard optical drives with an up to 20 megabyte per second data transfer rate and a 19 millisecond average access speed. The GS 2600 provides the fastest data transfer among 2.6GB ISO standard optical drives with a 6 megabyte per second data transfer rate and a 19 millisecond average access speed. The GS series optical disk drives are the ideal solution for storing, transporting and accessing today’s large digital files. They gives you gigabytes of on-line storage with direct access speed. Optical media is far more dependable than tape or removable hard disk drives.
The GS series optical disk drives are ideal for network storage and backup, document imaging, CAD, digital/audio editing, or other applications requiring large capacity, high performance and removable storage.
The GS series optical disk drives give you unsurpassed performance, high data storage capacity, conformance to ISO standards and is the most reliable optical storage device available on the market. It compliments your systems hard drive and is available in internal, external, rack mount, and tower configurations. 200,000 hour MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and 500,000 MIBF (Mean Insertions Between Failure) ensures years of reliable performance. Data written to optical will be readable for over 50 years with no media maintenance. It offers the speed of a hard drive, the removability of tape, and the reliability of optical.
Magneto Optical Rewritable Media Technology
Magneto Optical, or MO, is a rewritable media technology which uses a patented combination of magnetic and laser technologies to read and write data on a removable disk. A laser beam heats bits on the disk’s magnetic layer to write data. The data is then read by a sensor detecting the rotation of the laser beam as it reflects off the surface of the disk.
Globalstor Supports Direct Over Write Technology
The GS series optical disk drives support the latest advancement in optical storage technology – LIMDOW (Light Intensity Modulation Direct Overwrite) media. Traditional MO drives write data to optical media in two passes: one to erase, another to write. Over Write enables the GS 2600 to write data to optical media in a single pass, thereby providing write performance twice that of traditional MO drives.
Complete "Backwards" Compatibility Guaranteed
The Globalstor GS 5200 accepts any ISO compatible 5.2GB, 4.8GB, 4.1GB, 2.6GB, 1.3GB, 1.0GB or 650MB in either the 2048K, 1024K, or 512K Bytes/sector media.
