The advent of second-generation optical storage technology and user experience with PACS dictate a new look at PACS long-term database organization and optical archive strategy. Optical disk drives are growing faster and more reliable, disks and jukeboxes will hold more data for their size, and the cost per byte of optical disk storage will fall. Users are becoming more sophisticated in their use of PACS. Field experience has increased our knowledge of user needs and refined our models of optical archive usage. COnsidering these advances, this paper addresses such topics as centralized archives, standards and equipment compatibility, flexible archival and de-archival criteria, data reliability, backup strategies, and improved archive performance.
