Millenniata today announced it has entered a manufacturing and license agreement with RITEK Corporation, the leading manufacturer of optical storage media in the world, to manufacture M-DISC optical discs.
“We are pleased to have RITEK join our M-DISC consortium of global partners who will help create a new data storage category centered on providing permanent storage to the masses,” said Paul Brockbank, Millenniata CEO. “RITEK’s manufacturing strength and expertise will help us meet the growing demand for the M-DISC.”
RITEK will begin manufacturing M-DISCs utilizing the technology and specifications of Millenniata. The RITEK manufactured M-DISCs will be available through Millenniata’s global sales and distribution channels, bringing permanent storage to a growing global user base.
“In a growing digital world, that until now has yet to find a true permanent storage solution, we believe M-DISC will define now and for the future how data will be used and preserved for generations,” said Gordon Yeh, CEO of RITEK Group. “It is an honor to be a manufacturing partner for M-DISC with Millenniata.”
Whether for music, photos, videos, genealogical records, business records, data loss prevention, permanent file backup, medical imaging, government or archive, M-DISC provides permanent storage by literally etching data into a rock-like material. The M-DISC will not degrade over time and is usable on a daily basis.
