Abstract : With the need for storage of greater volumes of data, new technology has emerged in high density recording of data. 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 is included. Mass storage units with very high recording densities are discussed. The different approaches taken toward mass storage are presented, followed by an example of each approach. Finally, one of these example systems, a laser mass memory system called UNICON, is analyzed with respect to file organization and I/O routines. (Author)
