StreamStor Exceeds 1.6 Terabytes of Sustained Recording and Playback

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
LONGMONT, Colo., July 16 -- Boulder Instruments announced that its StreamStor real-time storage system has exceeded 1.6 Terabytes of total storage capacity. The high end StreamStor PCI-816 is now scalable for sustained recording at 20 Mbytes/s for 1365 minutes up to 100 Mbytes/s for 273 minutes.
    "StreamStor is designed to take advantage of ongoing improvements in disk drive capacities. Recent announcements of 100GB IDE drives by companies like Maxtor provide a sizable 25% increase in StreamStor's overall storage capacity. For many of our scientific and military customers this provides precious additional minutes or hours of sustained digital recording and/or playback," said Tom Skrobacz, VP of Business Development. "Applications like aerial surveillance, radar recording, HDTV recording, imaging and machine vision will benefit for these extended durations. Additional storage translates into extended uptime -- reducing costs for customers using leading edge data acquisition equipment with our StreamStor products."
    Earlier this year Boulder Instruments announced the development of its next generation recorder under contract with MIT Haystack Observatory. The new products -- expected to be available during the fourth quarter -- will exceed 1 Gb/s sustained data rates on a single PCI board -- creating even more demand for the higher capacity disk drives now available.
