Mass storage plays an increasingly important part in the changing role of the traditional open-shop computing center precipitated by the trend toward decentralization. A large number of mass storage applications are of the write-once type, for which the emerging optical disk technology is well suited. Some of the broad application areas are experiment data capture, shared reference data bases, program and documentation libraries, and medical studies requiring individual patient data. The utility of currently available optical disk products is being investigated for these applications for a variety of computing environments including those of IBM tm, DEC-VAX tm, and UNIX tm products.
