Paper Abstract

A decision to implement an optical storage system raises a number of issues, some of which relate directly to the current capabilities of technology and some of which are operational. The determinants for success include a thorough analysis of existing operations, a clear requirements definition, and a careful mapping of the requirements to a configuration for the system. Although these steps are materially similar to the analysis required for any automation project, they have been less than well understood in the context of this storage technology. This paper will identify and discuss these tasks as they relate to the design of a complete system, using case studies to highlight the effects of work flows, storage algorithms, and communication requirements. In the process, the paper distills design experience in optical disk data management systems with hundreds of workstations and Terabytes of on-line storage.
