Disk arrays offer greatly increased transfer bandwidth at low cost, but without additional data redundancy they can suffer from significantly degraded reliability. The authors examine the reliability of RAID (redundant arrays of inexpensive disks) systems and find that although extremely reliable disk arrays cannot be attained with data redundancy alone, RAID system reliability can be made better than conventional large disks with little extra hardware. They show that the rest of the system… CONTINUE READING
