PrimeArray CD/DVD, NAS and iSCSI storage products provide storage solutions for a wide variety of applications. Loaded onto a PrimeArray system, these applications can be shared among multiple users simultaneously.
Below is a sampling of some of the applications for PrimeArray CD/DVD, NAS and iSCSI storage products:
FED LOG is the logistics information system published by the Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS). FED LOG CDs and DVDs catalog information on 7 million-plus stock numbers and 12 million-plus part numbers. New FED LOG discs are sent monthly to meet the needs of military and civilian personnel worldwide.
Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN)
MSDN is an essential source of information for developers using Microsoft® tools, products, technologies and services. Software developers using Microsoft products depend on these subscriptions for technical data and updates from Microsoft. It includes information as detailed as technical notes about how the software can be manipulated or used with other software programs
TechNet is a resource for IT professionals that provides convenient access to full-version Microsoft evaluation software. The annual subscription also includes professional support incidents, a technical information library, and many other resources for evaluating, deploying, and maintaining Microsoft software.
Auto Repair - ALLDATA/Mitchell OnDemand
ALLDATA® and Mitchell On Demand provide OEM automotive repair information and solutions to the professional automotive service industry. Repair and collision shops depend on these manuals, which are distributed on CD, for service and repair information, shop management and customer relations solutions.
Organizations have always had to back up their email archives, including those on Microsoft Exchange. But since the advent of Sarbanes Oxley, the need to archive and access emails is even more important. Moreover, hosting Microsoft Exchange on a standalone server exposes administrators to capacity challenges and data protection risks. Administrators can glean enormous storage benefits by moving Exchange to an IP SAN built on an iSCSI solution.
Illustrators, graphic artists, and marketing/advertising departments subscribe to CDs with stock photos, illustrations, industry artwork, line drawings, and other graphical material that needs to be shared.
Educational material is often distributed on CDs and DVDs rather than via printed books. Disc-based training is fast and economical. Schools, including K-12 and college level, can use server-based material in the classroom. Companies with training requirements can have their employees take courses online. For example, HR departments may require that employees watch a series of DVDs to become trained on sexual harassment policies.
Paper manuals can be cumbersome and expensive. Distributed via CDs and DVDs, documentation can include rich media, making the learning experience more powerful. By loading documentation onto a server, companies make it easy for several employees to use the materials at once. In environments where discs could get damaged or dirty, such as aircraft hangers, having the information loaded onto a server keeps it safe and accessible.
Digital surveillance systems often generate large video files than need to be retained for long periods of time. Storing these files on users' PCs is risky and most PCs don't have the disk capacity for long-term storage. A NAS or iSCSI storage system is the perfect solution to centralize and protect these files, and offer enormous storage capacity for long-term retention.
