What Is A CD Tower?

A tower is a computer without a hard drive that only includes optical reader drives (CD-ROM Server and/or DVD-ROM Server ). The capacity of these non-caching systems is equal to the number of drives in the tower. As a result, a tower with seven CD-ROM readers may simultaneously connect to seven discs. To update a disc in a tower, simply open the drive and replace the old disc with the new one. Prime Array offers tower mod-les such as Pro server CD & DVD Server and Loader and Maxtet CD DVD Loader which connect to another server via a SCSI cable.

Pure CD loaders and DVD loaders, as well as CD servers and DVD servers and loaders, are available from Prime Array. Up to 12 DVD reader drives can be installed in these "towers" for simultaneous direct data access or data loading. If you want to use a tower and a loader, you should:

  • You have many discs to load and share, and you need to do the task swiftly. See the ProServer CD & DVD Server and Loader for further information.
  • You have hundreds of discs on hand – or will receive at regular intervals – and all you need to do now is load them onto an existing server or staging area. See the Maxtet CD & DVD Loader for further information.

Subscription media material is updated regularly, usually monthly. When a new subscription is received, simply put the disc into the optical drive of the PrimeArray CD-DVD server, and the outdated disc is instantly uploaded and replaced while user access privileges are preserved. We know that digitized data can rise at an exponential rate. Fortunately, the PrimeArray system will readily keep up with your company's expanding requirements. Within a single system, hard drive capacity can start as low as 80 GB and grow to 8 TB. That means you may distribute up to 4,000 titles or just archive important data – all from a single system. If the need arises, you can choose a configuration that allows you to add more reader and writer optical drives.

  • The server automatically copies an exact disc image from your CDs or DVDs onto its hard drive when you insert the optical drive. After finishing, the disc will automatically eject.
  • On a PrimeArray CD and DVD server, creating various groupings or sets is simple. Without duplication, the same disc image can exist in numerous shares. To arrange your discs and set up user permissions, use PrimeArray's comprehensive disc management software.

Features and Benefits

  • The system connects to the Ethernet network immediately. Connect it to your network, assign it an IP address, then capture CD/DVD server images with the built-in reader. In a matter of minutes, you'll be up and running. As with a network file server, users can see (and read or search) the contents of each disc. It does not require a server to host it, unlike SCSI attached towers. You save money by either repurposing an existing server or avoiding the cost of a server and network license. It should be near the users who have CDs or DVDs to distribute.
  • Everyone on the network may access your CDs and DVDs since they're organized, safe, and easy to find. People can work more quickly and efficiently. Load up to eight CDs or DVDs loader at the same time to save time.
  • The server can be configured with a RAID 0 or 1 array for its various hard drive systems. RAID 0 improves data access performance and allows for the construction of large data volumes. In the event of a drive failure, RAID 1 mirrors one hard drive disc to another for data protection. RAID 1 data is protected, and the manpower invested in constructing your digital library is retained in the unlikely case of a hard drive failure.
  • Increase the speed with which you can access data, create higher data volumes, and keep your data safe. As your CD/DVD server collection expands, expand your storage capacity. To improve dependability, increase throughput or use one interface as a failover.


Maxtet is the simplest way to load, share, or stream CDs and DVDs from a server or staging area. Would it make your job easier to have many optical CD-ROM Server or DVD-ROM Server drives in this USB 3.1 tower? PrimeArray Systems has released an improved Maxtet model with increased speed.

  • Software discs are subjected to quality assurance testing.
  • By simplifying the management of your CDs/DVDs, CD-DVD loaders can save you a lot of time and money.
