Date: 2021.09.08
Whether you're working with digital media files, setting up a home-theater system, or creating a long-term backup solution, there are many reasons to pair conventional HDD/SSD data storage with optical media such as CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray. Home users can store music, movies and shows on optical discs, and use hard drives or SSDs for programs and files. Media editors store large source files on SSDs for faster editing, and use DVDs or Blu-Rays for distribution. Businesses from almost every industry use hard drives for local storage, or on-site backup, and in some cases where critical data require stability and longevity, M-DISCs is used back up data for up to 1000 years. Despite their complementary usages, finding a single solution to work with hard drives, SSDs, and optical discs is no easy task.
