Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

3.23 Other Non-Unix HSM

    DEC's old Tops-20 OS supported offline files, and would generate an
automatic request to the operator to mount a tape when the user
accessed the file. When you listed a directory, it would show you
which files were online and which off.

DEC's OpenVMS has some sort of support for this now. VMS 6.1 supports
"shelved" files.

There is also the product Virtual Branches, from Acorn Software, which
does HSM for MO and CD-ROM for OpenVMS.
