Modern storage systems are often large complex distributed systems. Current techniques for evaluating their reliability, for example the mean time to failure (MTTF), require the solution of a system of differential equations. We present a more elementary, intuitive approach that focuses on the steady-state behavior of each storage organization when it goes… CONTINUE READING
