Abstract
The growth of large databases always leads to problems of data storage. Applications with multigigabyte requirements such as pictorial or document storage are particularly difficult. A variety of technological solutions have been developed that rely on high density optical storage for rapid access to large volumes of data. A major frustration for those of us engaged in research on application-oriented computer systems has been the difficulty in obtaining and integrating these specialized mass storage devices. This paper details (1) the integration of a Hitachi 301 digital optical disk storage device into a VAX minicomputer system, (2) the software system to support the optical disk, (3) the performance of the hardware/software system, and (4) the integration of optical disk operation into an application in radiological imaging. The software system is designed under the VMS operating system in FORTRAN 77 to facilitate simple integration of optical disk functions into application packages.
