5.25" Automated Storage Libraries
  • Intuitive User Interface Panel
  • Dynamic Automatic Alignment (DAA) System
  • Distributed Power Source
  • Advanced Network Control System
  • Built-in Diagnostics for all control modules

Orion Series storage devices are performance-oriented in design. Sporting such features as Dual Cartridge robotic pickers, Orion units allow for disk exchanges as fast as 3 seconds. DISC's industry-exclusive Barcode Inventory Option allows for fast and efficient data archive retrieval. The end result is seamlessly quick and efficient data delivery to the user.

Orion Series libraries benefit from flexible design architecture and scalable option of holding 150 to 1,000 disks per appliance. In addition, the device has the option of holding anywhere from 2 to 32 optical drives and is field-upgradable, resulting in a storage device that can grow alongside your business for years to come.

The DISC Orion lineup is distinguished by its high data availability, allowing up to 32 drives to be accessed at one time. Coupled together with multiple SCSI buses and its small footprint, Orion is a powerful, yet physically unobtrusive, addition to any network. Like all other DISC storage offerings, Orion shares a common family architecture, ensuring upgradability and maximum usage.

Industry exclusive features, found only on the Orion line, such as the Dynamic Automatic Alignment System truly separate DISC apart from the competition.

  Barcode Inventory Option


DISC's exclusive Barcode Inventory Option contributes to the operational efficiency of the Orion Series product line.

Packaged in a portable, media-sized module, that occupies only two media slots, DISC's Barcode Inventory Option dramatically reduces inventory time and retrieval of archived media. Compliant with standard SCSI commands and emerging IEEE standards, the Barcode Inventory Option automatically re-indexes the media after any intervention, guaranteeing a continuously updated catalog of data for users. Capable of reading a variety of standard and custom barcode labels, the largest benefit is the elimination of manual indexing of disks, resulting in an efficient and automatic solution to ever-expanding storage compilations.

  Dynamic Automatic Alignment System

An industry-leading feature found only on DISC nearline storage systems.

After reaching a predetermined usage level, the storage system will automatically perform a self-correcting, diagnostic program to ensure that the robotic picker has maintained proper alignment. The result is less media-delivery failures, less system downtime and continued productivity.
