  author={D. Feng and Lingfang Zeng and F. Wang and Peng Xia},
A tape library is seldom considered as a viable place for constructing a file system for a sequential write/read device. Storage virtualization technology has become a buzzword in technology circles lately, in this paper we propose a tape library file system, called TLFS. The purpose of TLFS is to maintain a consistent view of mass storage so that the user can effectively manage it. Like disk file system, TLFS provides some file system operations, such as create, delete, open, close, read and… Expand
