We run through seven different durability tests on the Sony optical disc archive (ODA) cartridge. Gen 3 media can store 5.5TB on a single cartridge. The Cartridges can be accessed in a single USB drive or larger robotic library called the Petasite.
We unbox the Pioneer BDR-X12EBK external USB Blu ray burner and burn QL 128GB BDXL disc using ImgBurn on windows 11.
We test Farming Chia on both a Blu Ray Jukebox and Sony Petasite Optical Disc Archive system for farming Chia XCH plots. Optical provides a random form of access, unlike tape drives that require sequential access.
