This refers to the individual standalone optical drive or jukebox. Each library can contain at least on volume or piece of media. Mailslot: a port on the jukebox hardware through which individual media can be imported or ejected. Magneto Optical: Optical storage technology that uses a laser to change the properties of the storage disk surface magnetically. Users can read, write, erase, etc. just as they would with a hard disk, but the data is more stable. Depending on the software utilized to control the drive, as you need space on a platter you can delete files (unlike WORM).
A library in Enstore is comprised of both the physical data storage media, robotic devices and drives. An Enstore library is typically called a robot.
A device that holds a bunch of tapes or optical disks and can robotically pick up tapes and read and write these tapes. Libraries can easily hold 100 gigabyte of data or more.
A data-storage system, usually managed by Removable Storage. A library consists of removable media (such as tapes or discs) and a hardware device that can read from or write to the media. There are two major types of libraries: robotic libraries (automated multiple-media, multidrive devices) and stand-alone drive libraries (manually operated, single-drive devices). A robotic library is also called a jukebox or changer. See also: Removable Storage
