Ampex boosts DST performance
With a transfer rate of 20MBps, Ampex`s latest line of double-density DST tape systems are 33% faster than previous DST models. These Ultra-SCSI systems have a 20MBps transfer rate and can store up to 330GB of data on a single cartridge. Like previous DST products, the new system accommodates multiple independent tape partitions on a single cartridge, allowing users to insert updated files within a tape without corrupting previously recorded data. And "system zones" allow for multiple mount/dismount locations and eliminate the need to rewind prior to ejecting the tape. An upgrade path is available. Pricing starts at $115,000. www.ampex.com.
