This technology is significantly different than magnetic disk and tape emulation since the Write Once properties of UDO are inherent to the recording surface of the media and are not a function of software or firmware controls.
A drive with removable, high-capacity, magnetic disk media potentially meets these criteria.
Tape is being used to fulfill this important data storage requirement for two reasons: tape capacities have continued to double every 2-3 years and outpace magnetic disk capacity using compression; and the cost advantage of tape over magnetic disk solutions is tremendous.
In contrast, information on a magnetic disk is retrieved bit by bit by spinning the disk.
Overhead: In order to meet write-once requirements for magnetic disk solutions, the data must go through an Application Programmatic Interface (API) that forms a data protection layer of non-eraseability while the data is under management in the compliance system.
