Multimedia information systems are an essential component of several multimedia applications ranging from media entertainment to on-line library systems. However, the bandwidth available on traditional workstation-based I/O systems is not sufficient to be able to support hundreds of multimedia information streams. In this paper, we discuss our approach to built a storage subsystems in a multimedia server which can deliver variable-bit-rate audio/video data streams to several hundred clients simultaneously over a high-speed broadband network. Our approach is to distribute the bandwidth requirement across multiple disks in a disk-array architecture. We address issues of multimedia data layout on this disk subsystem.
