Paper Abstract

When the time it takes to access a tape is too long, and the storage capacity of a magnetic disk is too small, then optical disk technology can be applied to provide the best of both worlds; fast access and high storage capacity. Optical disk provides random access media with larger capacities than magnetic disk. Optical disk jukeboxes and libraries can provide huge storage capacities online. Storage intensive applications such as signal processing, image processing, voice recognition, scientific data collection, CAD/CAM, supercomputers, medical imagery and visualization drive the demand for huge online capacity and fast access.
