What is a yLibrary?
The simplest definition of an yLibrary is the place where you store yVolumes. The YMiLibrarian packages data into yVolumes for secured archival, retrieval, and distribution.  The YMiLibrarian guards and manages these yVolumes by checking information into the library, tracking how it circulates and eventually taking it out of active circulation.

All yLibraries are virtual. They can reside anywhere: online, near-line and off-line. It fits into your present and future infrastructure.  yLibraries expand data storage beyond the limitations of 20th century digital storage systems  and ensures that your storage infrastructure is
