Software AS Ltd – no, the AS doesn’t reflect Scandinavian parentage, simply that the London E-based company majors on the AS/400 – has launched Datastore/AS, a Computer Output to Laser Disk storage enabler for AS/400 users. Developed in conjunction with Hitec (Laboratories) Ltd, Staines, Middlesex, the package enables the retrieval of any archived data available in ASCII form. The architecture is unusual, in that access to data held on optical disk is controlled by a personal computer server which in turn communicates with the AS/400; thus, any AS/400 terminal can use the system as if it were native to the main processor. Like its MS-DOS and Windows predecessors, the package comes in several different versions: Read-Only, Entry Level System, Stand-alone, Networked and Jukebox. The stand-alone version starts at #8,500, and the networked version at #15,000. The company sees potential customers as banks and other institutions with large amounts of microfiche data.
