Paper Abstract

Multimedia consumes a vast amount of storage, even when compressed. This requirement couples with the continual explosion of media availability and the human desire to access more information, makes multimedia servers the inevitable repository for many applications. In this paper we describe technology for multimedia data storage. We discuss: the choice of storage media, disk scheduling, data placement in the media, the file system of the storage server, and the reliability and availability of the multimedia storage server. As a summary, we give an implementation of our project ATM-Based Multimedia Storage System in the final part of this paper.
