near-line storage
Last modified: Tuesday, February 22, 2000 

Near-line storage is used by data warehouses as an inexpensive, scalable way to store large volumes of data. Near-line storage devices include DAT and DLT tapes (sequential access ), CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs DVD-RAMs and Magneto-Optical (random access ) devices. Retrieval of data can be slow, but the type of data (archives, past records, etc.,) dictates that the information will not be accessed often.
