iXOS Gmbh, which started life as an X-Windows technology house and went on to provide network, imaging and archiving add-ons to SAP AG’s R/3 corporate business software, has struck it lucky in the CD-ROM and CD-Recordable management software business with new deals from Eastman Kodak Co and Plasmon Data Inc. iXOS and Kodak have signed a strategic storage partnership under which Kodak will integrate iXOS Jukeman with its automated CD Library 144 network jukebox. The combination, for servers running Windows NT and various Unix flavors, provides transparent network management for disks storing up to 100Gb of information, and boosts transfer speeds to something like magneto-optical library performance, claim the two companies. The software provides fast directory cache initialization, and concurrent write and read access across both multiple networks and between Windows NT and Unix systems. Configured with two CD-ROM drives and 144 slots, the system is priced at $6,400. A cooperative storage partnership with Plasmon Data means the software will also run on Plasmon’s D-Series CD Jukeboxes. The newest version of iXOS Jukeman, release 2.2, is also available separately, and includes variable packet recording , which simplifies the writing process and enables writing to the CD media multiple times, and Asian language support. iXOS now has a US branch, iXOS Software Inc, based in San Mateo, California. SAP AG acquired a 10% stake in the company back in 1993.
