Image Number 5 for United States Patent #8271508.

The present invention is directed to the automated storage and retrieval of data. A method in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention includes: requesting a data record; broadcasting a query for the requested data record to a plurality of data records in a data center, the query comprising a unique listener key identifying the requested data record and information regarding a requesting program; providing each of the plurality of data records with a listener, wherein each listener actively monitors the broadcasted query to determine if the unique listener key in the broadcasted query matches a unique listener key of the data record associated with the listener; and in the case of a match, automatically transferring the data record with the matching unique listener key from the data center to the requesting program.
