<storage> The set of tracks on a multi-headed disk that may be accessed
without head movement. That is, the collection of disk tracks which are the same
distance from the spindle about which the disks rotate. Each such group forms
the shape of a cylinder. Placing data that are likely to be accessed together in
cylinders reduces the access significantly as head movement (seeking) is slow
compared to disk rotation and switching between heads.
