Optical storage has replaced antiquated storage methods, making room for the millions of bytes of data produced daily in today's information age. With increased internet access, advanced hardware and software technology and the constant need for improved communication, the data derived from these processes needs to be stored somewhere. Today, filing cabinets can't get the job done.

Imagine if you had to rummage through filing cabinets of paper, or scan through thousands of pages on microfilm to find the data you need. This sounds absurd with the advanced search and sort functions built into all software applications. These breakthroughs have quickened the rate of business and the ease and accessibility of information.

More Data, Less Space Requirements

Optical storage has played a huge role in these advances. Legal documents, medical records and customer relationship management systems all rely on the ability of optical imaging. Rather than paper-based storage systems, optical technology enables us to increase the amount of data stored in a minimal amount of space.

Consider a compact disk. One disk can hold nearly 600 million pages of documents. Now consider the space required to house that many paper documents. The advantages are clear, now its time to choose the right system for your organization.
