TerraServer Announces New Imagery Backup Option

RALEIGH, NC - February 6, 2008 -– TerraServer has announced that digital satellite and aerial image files are now available to be delivered on various backup storage devices, including CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD-DVD, USB Flash, and Hard Drive. This allows TerraServer customers to easily create custom imagery discs, which can be used offline without an Internet connection and provide extra security/redundancy for data backup and recovery.

"This is a way to offer our customers some security on their imagery investment," said Brian Randy Funk, COO of TerraServer. "We see this as a great backup solution for our large aerial and satellite imagery customers."

The offline, hard copy backup option is available for digital imagery purchases for an additional price, depending on the selected storage method. All custom backup methods are then created on demand and then shipped directly from TerraServer. Additionally, all digital imagery purchased through TerraServer is always immediately available for download once the transaction has been completed.

TerraServer is offering imagery on traditional Compact Discs (CD-ROM) and Digital Versatile Disc (DVD-R). TerraServer also support the next generation, high definition discs including Blu-ray Disc (BD-R) and High-Definition DVD (HDDVD-R). By comparison, the HD-DVD offers 20 times as much storage space as a CD-ROM and the Blu-ray Disc can store 34 times as much as a CD-ROM. In addition, TerraServer offers Flash Memory Drives (USB) and external Hard Disc Drives with storage capacity up to 80 GB, which is equivalent to 115 CD-ROMs.
