Emass enters NT software arena
Emass this month begins shipments of a Windows NT version of its Amass archival software, a file system that allows NT users to directly access tape libraries and optical jukeboxes. Amass was previously available only for Unix. The software can be used with third-party backup and hierarchical storage management (HSM) packages, such as those from Legato and IBM. The initial release of Amass for Windows NT will support Hewlett-Packard and Plasmon optical jukeboxes. Versions for other secondary and tertiary storage platforms are due later this year. Pricing for Amass for Windows NT starts at $3,000.
