Stripped mirroring RAID architecture

Hai Jin, Kai Hwang
2000 Journal of systems architecture  
Redundant arrays of independent disks (RAID) provide an ecient stable storage system for parallel access and fault tolerance. The most common fault tolerant RAID architecture is RAID-1 or RAID-5.  ...  The reliability of the system is as good as RAID-1, but with a high throughput approaching that of RAID-0.  ...  Data loss on a single failure is possible in these systems unless fault-tolerant caches are used [17] .  ...

Architectural Techniques to Enable Reliable and Scalable Memory Systems [article]

Prashant J. Nair
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Ideally, we would like memory systems to remain robust, scalable, and implementable while keeping the overheads to a minimum.  ...  To ensure even a bare-minimum level of reliability, present-day solutions tend to have high performance, power and area overheads.  ...  With a RAID-Group of 1024 lines, the RAID-4 based correction would incur a storage overhead of 64KB for a cache of 64MB (the 64MB cache has 1K groups of 1024 lines).  ...

Orthogonal striping and mirroring in distributed RAID for I/O-centric cluster computing

Kai Hwang, Hai Jin, R.S.C. Ho
2002 IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems  
The optimal choice among them depends on parallel read/write performance desired, the level of fault tolerance required, and the cost-effectiveness in specific I/O processing applications.  ...  We report the new RAID-x design and its benchmark performance results. The advantage of RAID-x comes mainly from its orthogonal striping and mirroring (OSM) architecture.  ...  Hai Jin would like to acknowledge the support from the Area-of-Excellence Program in Information Technology at the University of Hong Kong.  ...

RAIDb: Redundant Array of Inexpensive Databases [chapter]

Emmanuel Cecchet
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Like RAID, we define different RAIDb levels that provide various cost/performance/fault tolerance tradeoffs.  ...  We propose the concept of Redundant Array of Inexpensive Databases (RAIDb). RAIDb is to databases what RAID is to disks.  ...  Figure 1 gives an overview of the RAIDb architecture. As for RAID, a controller sits in front of the underlying resources.  ...
