AbstractWhile the scientific press brims with descriptions of state-of-the-art projects using the latest technology to produce huge amounts of data, little attention is given to the system requirements that result when Terabytes of data are generated. This paper examines the affect on telemetry, and replay/analysis systems and the necessary integration of high-speed digital tape recorders in such systems. Specifically, it considers how the tape recorder interfaces to the computer system, how the interface is integrated into the computer’s I/O architecture, and how much the user can expect in performance.
