Think back to the year 2000. Y2K fears were put to rest. Microsoft officially launched Windows 2000, and Sony released the PlayStation 2. Something also happened that year that may not have made headlines but was important to a small group of optical disc experts based in Southern California. Aleratec was born.
Back then, professional optical recording and storage technology was not widely accessible. Duplicating hundreds or thousands of Compact Discs could be a pricey and time-consuming proposition. Aleratec founders set out to change that by creating a fast, fully automatic, standalone CD duplicator at a price that smaller organizations could afford.
From Optical Discs to HDD Towers and Beyond
In 2007, Aleratec engineers put their digital media duplication expertise to work designing advanced but user-friendly hard disk drive duplicators and sanitizers. Like our early CD duplicator, Aleratec hard disk drive duplicators would incorporate our “load and go” philosophy where users could clone and sanitize numerous hard disc drives without the need to monitor the process or interface with complicated software. The same philosophy has since expanded to Aleratec USB flash drives and USB hard drive duplicators, Blu-ray disc duplicators and our most recent Portable Device Management charge and sync product line for tablet deployment.

Since our early beginnings, Aleratec has earned a reputation as the Prosumer’s Choice with products that are reliable and easy to use, and our customers span from large corporations and government agencies, to small companies and schools.
