Fast Access, Reliable Performance

Flexibility and compatibility are critical concerns when sharing CD resources. DiscZerver takes these worries away by providing universal network client accessibility and file server independence. DiscZerver comes powered with all the software you need to cache and share CDs/DVDs.

With DiscZerver technology, you can cache CDs and DVDs to your tower's hard drives to speed up access and dramatically improve concurrent access by multiple users. Caching with DiscZerver emulates drive speeds up to 66X!

Cache CDs From Remote PCs

And when you need to cache a CD or DVD from a remote office or workstation, just use DiscZerver's remote load utility. Remote or local, the process is as simple as creating an image of a CD's or DVD's contents on one of the tower's hard drives. In either case, once a CD is cached, the real CD can be removed from the CD-ROM drive. Concurrent users can access and use the contents of the cached image immediately.

A Thin Server That's Big On Features

DiscZerver may be small enough to slide into a tower, but it's loaded with features designed to simplify installation, administration and CD/DVD sharing.

The product kits come complete with hardware and software, user guide and companion CD containing remote load utility, FTP utility, online help, and Internet browser.
