Multimedia storage servers provide access to multimedia objects including text, images, audio, and video. The design of such servers fundamentally differs from conventional servers due to: (1) the real-time storage and retrieval requirements, as well as (2) the large storage space and data transfer rate requirements of digital multimedia. In this paper, we present an overview of the architectures and algorithms required for designing digital multimedia storage servers.
