Hard-disk failures are one of the primary causes of data loss. Most disk failures are partial failures, where only some sectors are unavailable due to a latent sector error or some blocks are silently corrupted. This dissertation focuses on all aspects of such partial disk failures—their characteristics, their impact on different systems, and techniques that can be used tolerate them. We perform the first large-scale study of partial disk failures, involving 1.53 million disks. We find that… CONTINUE READING
