The lowdown on the DVD jukebox

What is it? A DVD jukebox is a peripheral storage device used to house and access hundreds of data DVDs.

When do I need one? If you store large quantities of data for long periods of time, and access to the data is important, a DVD jukebox could be valuable.

What are the main considerations in buying jukeboxes? First, storage capacity: You should acquire units that will be able to handle your current and projected data storage needs. Second, user access: If many users will require access to the data simultaneously, the unit should have multiple DVD drives. Finally, the physical size of the unit: It should fit your space, either as a standalone cabinet or a rackmount component.

Must-know info? The software that manages the DVD jukebox should have all of the search, management and security capabilities you require. Consider a DVD server to hold frequently used data.
