Reliability and availability are increasingly important in large-scale storage systems built from thousands of individual storage devices. Large systems must survive the failure of individual components; in systems with thousands of disks, even infrequent failures are likely in some device. We focus on two types of errors: nonrecoverable read errors and drive failures. We discuss mechanisms for detecting and recovering from such errors, introducing improved techniques for detecting errors in… CONTINUE READING
