The slower retrieval speed when compared to that of a fixed disk
is also a problem for some users (e.g., 240 milliseconds is a fast access time for CD-ROM).
Nearline storage libraries are redundant by design and less costly per MB than fixed disk
Sometimes, it is almost like the fixed disk
bigots (trying to wipe out tape) are beginning to sound like the "optical bigots of old."
Companies can tailor their computing resources to fit their exact needs, accessing the same files from either environment--on fixed disk
, CD-ROM, or WORM drives.
During the installation process, SearchExpress checks to see that the system has at least 500 Kilobytes of free fixed disk
space before it allows intallation to proceed.
Models are available with a range of storage capacities from either fixed disks
or hot-swappable removable drives.
After installation, the system does a one-time scan of the fixed disks
to build up its checksum list.
Different versions have different features, view system memory in different ways and format fixed disks
