Formatted abstract

In an information hungry society, access to information is everything. Since the current medium for providing mass information access is the CD, businesses have traditionally relied on expensive CD Towers and CD Jukeboxes to access information. These products are very expensive, and only offer limited functionality. The small and medium business market has trouble justifying the cost of these products. This places them in the position of being receptive to new products that offer more functionality and are less expensive than the current standards.

It is the aim of the Virtual CD JukeBox to provide this product. The Virtual CD JukeBox is a file-server independent device that caches CDs, and serves these CDs to the users of the network as Virtual CDs. It provides each user in the network with a unique set of Virtual CD Drives, that they load these Virtual CDs into, and can access them from anywhere in the network.

The project results were that each user in the network had access to their unique set of Virtual CD Drives. Users could load and unload these drives with Virtual CDs through a web browser.
