Storage Systems: Organization, Performance, Coding, Reliability and Their Data Processing covers the coding, reliability and performance of popular RAID organizations: RAID1 mirrored disks, RAID5/6/7 1/2/3-disk failure tolerant – 1/2/3DFT arrays. Readers will learn about the storage of files, SQL and NoSQL databases on disk and SSD to achieve higher efficiency. As data compression, deduplication and encryption techniques for storage systems have led to new technologies, startups and techniques to save power in storage and server systems, the book discusses Fast Array of Wimpy Nodes (FAWN) at CMU, RAMCloud at Stanford, and key-value flash Lightstore at MIT, along with several storage proposals.
Finally, storage technologies from punched cards up to ash memories and beyond are discussed, along with the data placement and the scheduling of magnetic disks.
Provides readers with an in-depth understanding of the architecture and operation of computer storage systems Includes descriptions of various RAID levels, their coding, organization, performance and reliability Covers techniques for efficient and secure data storage through data compression, deduplication and encryption Presents readers with an in-depth understanding of the storage of files and SQL and NoSQL databases
