 KODAK OFFERS LOW-COST STORAGE,
 QUICK RETRIEVAL OF COMPUTER DATA
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) today announced the introduction of the Kodak Optistar storage system (KOSS), providing cost-effective storage and rapid retrieval of archived data from IBM mainframe computers.
 The new system is designed for large organizations, such as service companies in insurance, telecommunications, and banking, that require the capability for a vast amount of storage with ready access to provide fast customer response.
 KOSS incorporates the Kodak optical disk system 6800 automated disk library, capable of storing a terabyte (1 trillion bytes) of information on up to 100 optical disks, with each disk having a capacity of 10.2 gigabytes. The system itself takes up only 27 square feet of floor space.
 "Our research identified a strong demand for cost-effective, mainframe-based storage for archived data that is not frequently accessed," said Edgar J. Greco, vice president and general manager, Office Imaging Division. "With KOSS, companies will have the potential to improve customer service and provide on-line, access to information at reduced costs."
 KOSS gives users a storage option designed to be less expensive than on-line magnetic storage, with faster access than traditional archival storage.
 A single 14-inch optical disk from the Kodak optical disk system 6800 stores 10.2 gigabytes of data - equivalent to the information that can be stored on 3 to 4 million 11 x 14-inch computer output pages.
 KOSS is available immediately and is priced at approximately $400,000.
