     Check this out for storage!

IBM's new MagStar MP 3575 Tape Library Data Servers can
retrieve a tape from its storage slot, load it into a
drive, search, and be ready to transfer a data file in
under 19 seconds. Faster data retrieval is becoming
important for automated tape storage systems as they are
used in network storage management, data warehousing, and
digital libraries. The five new models range in capacity
from 300GB to 4.8 terabytes. They can be used in isolation
or as a "snap in" component of a Seascape storage system.

Big Blue also unveiled plans to let Unix-based systems
access the S/390's and RAMAC Array based storage control
functions, which were previously only available to
mainframe customers.
