SciNet debuts network-ready cluster jukebox
SciNet recently unveiled the DiscJockey line of cluster jukeboxes, network-attached storage devices that hold arrays of high-performance disc changers in single or multiple enclosures. According to company officials, the device offers the highest disc capacity of a standard jukebox and has a four-to-one or five-to-one ratio of platters to readers for enhanced overall network performance.
DiscJockeys do not require additional software on either file servers or networked client workstations. Available from SciNet and its resellers, a 16-disc DiscJockey starts at $1,495.
