mass storage

the storage and retrieval of large amounts of data

“‘It\'s not unusual for universities or government bodies to have rooms that are floor to ceiling with magnetic tapes”, says Kevin Murrell, a curator at Bletchley Park Computer Museum. “Ten or fifteen years ago this was the most common mass-storage medium, but today it\'s increasingly difficult to read them”.’ [New Scientist]
