Archive system of engineered quality

Made of high-quality aluminium and built to the highest in quality standards, the NETZON HMS 8-OFF offline archive rack offers the option of securely and systematically storing data using modular nearline and offline data storage, with standardised optical media.

The 12 intelligent drawers of the NETZON HMS 8-OFF can house 8 magazines of 35 offline media. Thus, the offline capacity is up to 3360 media, i.e. 430 terabytes of data. Sensors in the drawers and passive transmitters in the magazines ensure that the system can also provide information about the whereabouts of each medium.

The NETZON HMS 1035 and NETZON HMS 2105 libraries can be integrated as modules in pairs in the 19” cabinet. Archive data can be stored in the integrated libraries or in the offline drawers present in the rack. Thanks to the innovative extraction mechanism, the libraries are individually accessible for maintenance purposes.
