This paper has five purposes. First, to focus upon the key relationships that bound the technology choices for large, archival, digital storage devices; second, to identify the motivations for selecting the optical technology for a petabit-exabit level storage system (1015-1018 bits); third, to present a generic example and a specific implementation of a terabit-level optical storage device; fourth, to characterize the global design space constraints that will allow one to build a tecnology-limited optical store; and fifth, to sketch the outline of the BYTERON concept, a wideband 1016-1017 bit optical store and contrast its performance to that of a current optical store.
