Why M DISC as an Archival Solution vs. other options?
With Verbatim M DISC, information is engraved into a patented, inorganic recording layer resistant to light, temperature and humidity. Based on ISO/IEC 16963 testing, M DISC media has a projected lifetime of several hundred years –up to 8X that of most LTO media and up to 60X that of hard disc drives.
Verbatim prides itself on producing optical media compatible with more drive manufacturers than any other brand in the world. To ensure writer and autoloader compatibility, Verbatim works closely with hardware manufacturers on all phases of product development.
M DISC BD-R media is compatible with the latest Blu-ray hardware from leading manufacturers – no special drives required for recording or playback.
Additionally, BD-R drives are required to be backward compatible with older forms of optical media such as CDs and DVDs. This sets BD-R media apart from other archival solutions such as LTO, which has been known to exhibit compatibility issues between versions. With M DISC BD-R, there’s no need to worry about future compatibility – your data will be available for generations to come.
Random Access - Get your data faster.
Unlike offline storage options, such as LTO, Verbatim BD-R media provides random access, allowing you to navigate directly to the data you need without the need to fast forward or rewind.
Blu-Ray ® discs are designed specifically to store high-definition files. Using blue-violet laser technology, Blu-Ray® discs can handle up to 1080p resolution, 3-D, CAD, multiple audio formats, and other high-density file formats.
