<p>This article contributes algorithms that improve the performance of continuous media servers. The authors measure performance in terms of the maximum number of continuous data streams that a drive can support, the total RAM size requirements, and the start-up latency. These caching and prefetching algorithms in the host and disk-embedded caches that can improve the maximum number of streams a drive can support, with small start-up latencies. In addition, they show that the performance improvements do not come at the expense of total additional cache memory (at the host and/or the drive).</p>
