sio.co offers competitive pricing for duplication and standards conversions. We offer duplication services to and from:
1″ Type C
We can also transfer to CD-ROM and DVD
sio.co can perform standards conversions to and from PAL and SECAM with VHS, U-Matic, Beta SP, and 1” Type C.
If a tape is restored at sio.co and a preservation or working copy is made, sio.co offers a discounted duplication cost when additional screening or viewing copies are needed from the master in the future.
It is difficult to play back a tape that has been physically deformed to a significant extent. sio.co can inexpensively replace reels and cassette housing, and re-spool and repair ripped tape and leader. Since magnetic tape is not designed to be “spliced” and the splices will not reliably hold up after continued use, we recommend that the tape be duplicated after it is repaired.
We do not attempt to flatten kinked or buckled tapes because of the risks of additional damage and the limited chances of success.
Management provisioning and storage is performed easily and automatically while connecting all public and private storage units together, allowing them to act as a single unit. Growing is as simple as adding expansion units instead of expensive additional server hardware.
Scale up to 1440TB and concatenate to existing storage pools and scale your archive environment to hundreds of petabytes with little effort.
Our platform was built with the IT generalist in mind as an easy solution for rapidly scaling enterprise storage needs with the click of a mouse. Three clicks allows for provisioning of a iSCSI storage volume or a NFS network share. Two clicks allows users to assign storage to a host. Because today’s IT environment requires rapid and quick moves, we’ve built our system to work along with the speed of business.
Like their larger counterparts small and medium businesses are finding the need to scale and store data like never before. Our enterprise software includes thin-provisioning and user interface management that is simplified enough for a Johnny-come-lately to run load testing and thin-provisioning in a flash.
The ease of rapidly deploying VSAs en masse provides even the most nascent IT manager the power to scale in quick succession.
The increase demand of high performance archiving applications requires more than a run-of-the-mill software solution. With scalability of 810TB per system in just 26U of total rack space, our high efficiency platform is cost effective for nearly any application and allows for simple and easy scaled usage as your storage needs grow.
