With the standardized Auxiliary Memory interface specification, media management software can utilize this information and proactively take action to enhance the future protection of users' stored data.
We are working with several major software and hardware suppliers to take advantage of the benefits that the new Auxiliary Memory interface specification can offer, starting with AIT technology utilizing MIC.
Compaq agreed to participate in this project because we recognized the opportunity for a more comprehensive data protection and archiving solution offered by Auxiliary Memory access and retrieval than conventional tape media configurations," said Rusty Smith, director of Data Products for Compaq Computer Corporation's Storage Products Group.
We have joined the effort to standardize Auxiliary Memory in tape media in order to enable the industry to take advantage of the benefits that the technology has to offer.
VERITAS Software recognizes the value in supporting Sony, Compaq and Hewlett-Packard in the Auxiliary Memory standardization effort," said Neal Ater, senior vice president, Data Protection Product Group, VERITAS Software.
