Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING A ROBOTIC ARM IN A STORAGE DEVICE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE COMMANDE D'UN BRAS ROBOTIQUE DANS UN DISPOSITIF DE STOCKAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates generally to controlling access to a storage device (125). In a three-toer storage system including a storage manager (100), media management devices (115) and storage devices, access to a storage device containing a robotic arm (130) is dynamically assignable to one or more media management devices in accordance with user preferences, storage policies or other logical bases, such as network efficiency or availability. The invention also provides a computerized method for assigning control of a robotic arm to one or more media management devices.
(FR) De manière générale, l'invention concerne le contrôle de l'accès à un dispositif de stockage. Dans un système de stockage à trois niveaux comprenant un gestionnaire de stockage, des dispositifs de gestion de supports et des dispositifs de stockage, l'accès à un dispositif de stockage contenant un bras robotique peut être attribué de manière dynamique à un ou plusieurs dispositifs de gestion de supports conformément à des préférences d'utilisateur, des règles de stockage ou d'autres bases logiques telles que l'efficacité ou la disponibilité du réseau. L'invention concerne également un procédé informatisé destiné à attribuer la commande d'un bras robotique à un ou plusieurs dispositifs de gestion de supports.
