The TBM* Memory System is an on-line, high density memory system with a capacity of up to three trillion bits. It is a cost efficient method of storing large data bases on-line with an effective response similar to disc storage. Some features of the TBM* Memory System are: 1) Complete system redundance; 2) Modular expansion; 3) Hardware and data transfer reliability; 4) Large data base on-line; 5) Rapid response; and 6) Low cost per bit. Major applications of a mass storage system are: 1) The replacement of large conventional on-line and off-line tape library systems: 2) Supplements to enlarge disc memory systems; and 3) the provision of on-line storage for large data bases. Since the TBM* Memory System is indeed very complicated, a simulation model was developed to help the user understand the system and to predict the TBM* performance under various configurations and loading conditions. In order to help the user select the proper configuration for his installation, a sensitivity analysis is also provided.
