Magneto-Optical Libraries

Plasmon M-Series Magneto Optical (MO) Librarie

Alliance’s Plasmon branded 5.2 GB & 9.1 GB Magneto-Optical Libraries were a reliable, cost-effective data storage product. The legacy M-Series enabled rapid access to data with flexible configurations and standard interface options. Larger units are equipped with an advanced dual picker providing fast disk exchange times and field-proven high reliability. Many MO libraries are still in production today.

Although no longer manufactured, as the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Alliance offers upgrade paths and service for customers with legacy libraries of all types. Alliance G-Series provides mixed optical media support for both Magneto Optical (MO) and UDO technology in one library.

Upgrade today and continue with optical while protecting data investments. Alliance offers library upgrades and expansions designed to accommodate current and future business needs. View the Upgrade & Expansions tab below for available options.
