Large scale scientiic projects generate and use huge amounts of data. For example, the NASA EOSDIS project is expected to archive one petabyte per year of raw satellite data. This data is made automatically available for processing into higher level data products and for dissemination to the sci-entiic community. Such large volumes of data can only be stored in robotic storage libraries (RSLs) for near-line access. A characteristic of RSLs is the use of a robot arm that transfers media between… CONTINUE READING
