The DVD-RAM bridge technology combines ease of use and the random-access
performance of a hard drive with more than 100,000 write/rewrite cycles.
performance: Disk libraries also shine when it comes to restore performance, which involves accessing data stored in many scattered locations on a storage media.
The ASACA TeraCart libraries are the world's highest-density, random-access
storage solution and can be configured with 1 to 192 DVD-RAM drives and up to 11,600 double-sided 9.4GB rewritable DVD discs for capacities ranging from 2.3TB to more than 109TB.
Because some are random-access
storage mediums, using the same technology as your hard disk, applications stored on them can be run directly on your computer--with no need to first download them onto your hard disk, as would be necessary with tape storage.
A cell's internal and external environment affect the concentration and activities of those many macromolecules, giving rise to what Bray calls a "memory trace." As with a computer's random-access
memory, which serves as temporary storage for transient information, a cell's proteins maintain a record of its ever-changing surroundings.
The systems' random-access
and automated features allow tests to be run at any time and in any order as needed, eliminating the need for expensive pensive batch testing of multiple patient samples.
* Is removable, random-access
media, like small diameter disks, the trump card for automated libraries?
Intel has not determined how many computers contain the potentially fatal combination of parts - Intel's 820 chip set and a type of memory known as synchronous dynamic random-access
memory, or SDRAM.
A 386 computer or higher is recommended because the server needs at least as much random-access
memory and speed as a 386 can provide to manage the traffic from the networked PCs.
This year, manufacturers are just starting to produce commercial quantities of "dynamic random-access
memory' chips that can each hold a million pieces of data (SN: 3/2/85, p.135).
The Alfa S40 clinical analyzer is a fully automated, standalone, bench-top, random-access
analyzer that provides in vitro diagnostic testing with quick, accurate, and precise results.
