Paper Abstract

The Lawrence Livermore Laboratory has had a decade of experience with the use of an archival computer-storage facility. Along with other Department of Energy laboratories, we see a continuing need for such capabilities. This need arises from the increased speeds of large computers and from their proliferation as well. Surveys of potential sources suggest that the soonest and likeliest possibilities for developing an archival storage system are offered by optical technologies. The requirements for such a facility are briefly discussed.
