Paper Abstract

One of the problems in the area of user requirements for Mass Storage is the lack of clear definitions on: 1) the nature of user requirements, 2) desired hardware and software characteristics of future Mass Storage systems, 3) how future systems can be integrated into computing environments and, of special interest to vendors, 4) the size of the potential market for Mass Storage. A Mass Storage survey was prepared and distributed to collect information from potential users of mass storage for presentation to system designers. The results of the survey contained in this paper survey indicate some general trends in requirements and desired characteristics of new mass storage devices.
