Product Description

Openness is the AML/E's most significant advantage. It is a true mixed-media system, compatible with all commonly available drives. Mixtures of different media and drives can easily be combined within a single system. Also, the AML/E can be expanded in stages, allowing the system to grow with your projected data storage requirements.

Unylogix Technologies has many years of experience with large computer installations and has drawn on the expertise that went into the market leading AML/2 for the design of the AML/E. That's why choosing an AML Automated Mixed-Media Library is a sound investment in the future of your company. Our systems can make the best use of even the smallest space in a computer room. The AML/E is a natural extension of our HSM and Archival Storage Software Products. The AML/E builds on software proven by years of use in its larger predecessors. Like the entire AML family, this compact system has been developed by specialists with a wealth of experience in automating computer data storage. These experts know your needs. In development, implementation and support they know how to exploit their technological lead to your best advantage.
