Sony enhances jukebox management
Last month, Sony Electronics announced plans to bundle storage management software to improve the performance of its CDL1100 Desktop Library product line.
The CDL1100-22N model includes Smart Storage`s SmartStor Access, which provides enhanced management capabilities of the 65GB, 100-disc CD jukebox in a Windows NT environment.
The SmartStor suite creates a file system enabling a CD-ROM jukebox to be stored under a single drive letter on the network. This provides faster, one-stop file access.
To manage jukeboxes within a Macintosh environment, Sony bundled its CDL1100-23M with Astarte`s Miles Apart software. Miles Apart facilitates installation and setup tasks while providing network users transparent access to all CDs stored on the jukebox. Suggested list price for either bundled model is $3,639. www.sony.com.
