The difference between backing-up your data and archiving your data is subtle, but important. Backing-up data is usually done on a daily or weekly basis, to account for any edits or additions you have made. Archiving is a more permanent solution – ideally, you archive data a few times a year and it remains safe for years to come.
Optical media is the ideal media for archiving. It is durable enough to last for years and takes up less physical storage space. The random access file retrieval makes finding data faster and easier. And with better backwards compatibility, data stored on optical media can be accessed for many years to come.
Verbatim’s AZO recording layer is a unique and ultra-stable layer with a high resistance to UV light degradation while withstanding high laser and rotation speeds. Verbatim’s particular attention to the durability and light fastness of AZO makes it more stable than most recording dyes and the least affected by ultraviolet light.
AZO also offers high sensitivity for reliable high-speed recording and high reflectivity to eliminate read/write errors. The depth of the recording layer is also critical. The thinner the layer, the higher the sensitivity and power margin; therefore, the better the DVD works for high-speed recording.
No interruptions on backups, production jobs or downloads! Verbatim’s AZO technology creates optical discs with one of the lowest error rates, offering reliability, maximum read and write performance, and superior archival protection that lasts.
