A Tutorial on Reed-Solomon Coding for Fault-Tolerance in RAID-Like Systems


It is well-known that Reed-Solomon codes may be used to provide error correction for multiple failures in RAID-like systems. The coding technique itself, however, is not as well-known. To the coding theorist, this technique is a straightforward extension to a basic coding paradigm and needs no special mention. However, to the systems programmer with no… (More)
