OnStream Back in the Flow -- Less than two months after the company declared bankruptcy, the assets and intellectual property of OnStream Inc. have been acquired by the newly formed Netherlands-based OnStream Data B.V. to sell and support Advanced Digital Recording (ADR) high-capacity tape drives (see "OnStream Files Chapter 7 Bankruptcy" in TidBITS-573). OnStream offers 30 GB tape drives with SCSI, IDE, USB, or FireWire connections; it also sells 30 GB and 50 GB SCSI versions for server backups. When we first mentioned OnStream in TidBITS-569, we expressed concern that the ADR format (as well as the format used by Ecrix's VXA-1 drive) wasn't yet available from multiple suppliers, and therefore could be a risky choice as a backup solution should the parent company not succeed. We're happy to see OnStream's technology continue to be supported. [JLC]
