    Abstract

    The authors propose a concept n mass data storage system architecture, in which thousands of read/write heads,storage robots or StoBots move independently over a large,.flat storage medium.This concept,which has not been previously proposed,offers new degrees of freedom in data storage systems design, which could lead to a superior performance over conventional systems such as hard disks and tape.The impact of different file system architectures on the access time and data-rate of the StoBot drive is investigated.
