Emerging Data Protection Schemes
Emerging data protection schemes implement algorithms that deliver a higher mean time between data loss (MTBDL) than redundant array of independent disks (RAID) technology. These schemes take advantage of improvements in microprocessor performance and new algorithms to reduce rebuild times and storage protection overhead, while making protection levels a user-defined option. The availability of ever-larger-capacity disks is making the deployment of these new protection schemes a necessity.
