Given the cost of memories and the very large storage and bandwidth requirements of large-scale multimedia databases, hierarchical storage servers (which consist of disk-based secondary storage and tape-library-based tertiary storage) are becoming increasingly popular. Such server applications rely upon tape libraries to store all media, exploiting their excellent storage capacity and cost per MB characteristics. They also rely upon disk arrays, exploiting their high bandwidth, to satisfy a… CONTINUE READING
