Digital Equipment Corp has added an archive module to its Networker Save and Restore for NT backup program and added support for new DLT digital linear tape, 4mm DAT digital audio tape and 12 speed CD drives to its NT backup offerings. The latest version of Networker, a $1,000 program for one NT server and $2,750 for a network edition with 10 clients, supports file- level archiving to off-load infrequently used files to long-term storage. Networker hooks to a new $12,000 DLT drive that can store up to 70Gb per cartridge, 75% more than previous digital linear tape drives from the company. Up to five of the drives can be strung together to act like a single drive that can store 52.8 terabytes of data using automated library mechanisms. Digital’s new $1,900 4mm digital audio drive, which it claims is the world’s fastest, holds 4Gb of uncompressed data and sports a 775Kb-per-second transfer rate. A $3,650 autoloader for the DAT drive, which ships in March, stores eight cartridges in a single magazine. The new $490 12 speed CD, which ships next month, has an 1,800KB-per-second throughput that is three times faster than the previously drives offered.
