The Cybertronian data cylinders were created in the Golden Age of Cybertron to store accumulated knowledge of Cybertronian society. The cylinders house information in the form of living data stored as energy.

Organised by topic, the cylinders are equipped with a self-defense mechanism designed to prevent non-Cybertronians from accessing the knowledge. However (since they were created before the Great War), they do not distinguish between Autobots and Decepticons.
