Out of Commission...



Since I've been here at Comporium (May 2000), we have had some IBM Content Manager OnDemand data archived on an IBM 3995 Optical Library. This has two optical drives and stores 50 5.2 GB optical platters. We were using about 35 of these slots. It is LAN attached to our iSeries and runs off of an OS/2 controller.

We installed some disks last month for our iSeries as we had begun to migrate our data from optical to disk. We finished that migration and have now decommissioned the OS/2 controller and 3995 Optical Library. Not sure what we're going to do with it - if you're interested let me know...

But it's been pretty good since I've been here. OS/2 is like a rock! lol

If there are no takers, you could sell them to Flagship Tech, http://www.flagshiptech.com/

They buy/sell used equipment.

Just a thought.

Gregg - thanks! I will keep that in mind. I can't see why anyone would want it, but if we are just now getting rid of it I guess some people still use it.

But our IBM CE said we're the only one in his area (including Charlotte, NC) that had one of these things!
