We use a product on the 400 from IBM called OnDemand, product number for
V4R4 is 5769-RD1.  We receive spool files from many 400s, mainframes and
unix systems.  The product is highly scalable and very user friendly.  We
leave the reports on DASD for X number of days and then move them to 3995
Optical Juke boxes.  IBM has various sizes of juke boxes with the largest
being a 3995-C48 which holds 254 platters at 5.2 GB per platter.
Compression ratio of the spool files is upto 17 to 1.  The product can be
green screen and/or client server or you can add a web based browser product
for retrieval such as Netconnect.

Subject: CD-RW Juke box for the 400


Well, we just finished printing tens of thousands of pages of year-end
reports over here. The amount of paper we went through as well as the users
complaining about the amount of paper on their desks has us looking for
different way to distribute and store these giant-size reports.

Does anyone out there make a CD-RW for the 400? Juke box style CD-rw for the
400? This would be the way to go. Instead of aiming report output to a
printq it could be aimed or redirected to the CD burner.

I know we could get a CD-RW for a PC and FTP the files over to the PC, but
I'd like to find out if there is such an animal for the 400 first...
