AMASS

(Archive Management And Storage System) Tape management software for Unix from Quantum Corporation, Colorado Springs, CO (www.quantum.com). Originally developed by ADIC, AMASS makes the tape library look like an infinite disk drive to the application. At the back end, it manages the robotic mechanisms that move the required tape cartridges to the available tape drives. Supporting optical libraries as well, AMASS is used when an enterprise has exceeded its disk storage and needs to migrate to long-term storage.
