Abstract
With the need for storage of greater volumes of data, new technology has emerged in high density recording of data. First, a review is made of the conventional magnetic storage devices, including tapes, drums and discs, and their double density replacements. A detailed analysis of disc storage devices in included. Mass storage unites with very high recording densities will then be discussed. First, the different approaches taken toward mass storage will be presented, followed by an example of each approach. Finally, one of these example systems, a laser mass memory system called UNICON, will be analyzed with respect to file organizations and I/O routines.
