storage (Or track-to-track seek time) The time it takes to
move the head of a disk drive from one track to the next.
The minimum seek time gives a good measure of the speed of the
drive in a single-user/single-process environment where
successive read/write request are largely correlated and thus
if correlated data is stored in nearby cylinders most seeks
are from one cylinder to the next.
