SAS enhances that by supporting redundant paths to the disk drive.
In another recent finding, Charles Beichman of Caltech used Spitzer to find evidence of a thick, warm disk of dust around a star similar in mass and age to the 4.
If compressing your entire hard disk makes you apprehensive or you don't need that much added space, there is an intermediate solution: zipping individual files or programs and storing them in compressed form either on a hard disk or on some other convenient medium.
The idea is to take a SATA RAID system, load a file system onto it, connect it to the backup server, and then use either proprietary or backup software applications from leading vendors, depending on which product is implemented, to back up data to the RAID disk target instead of traditional tape.
Boss had been using computer simulations to study the transport of angular momentum, or rotational motion, and mass in the sun's protoplanetary disk.
Disk caches improve the data transfer rate, or the rate at which data from the hard disk are routed into the processor.
Deciding whether to use tape or disk for transporting backed up data is really an exercise in balancing risks.
To explain the discrepancy, the two scientists suggested that the galaxy's disk has a second part--a thicker, diffuse one extending about 3,000 light-years above and below the familiar flat disk.
Some accounting applications using optical disk technology include the following:
Now to annotate P, Q, D0, D1, D2 and D3 in terms of disk array: let D0, D1, D2 and D3 stand for user data stored in different hard disks and P and Q represent the parity data used to protect the user data.
During the 1990s, images taken by ground-based telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope revealed a 3 [degrees] tilt, or warp, in a section of the disk.
NearStore VTL is a dedicated, enterprise-class storage appliance that emulates physical tape libraries, stores large capacities of backup data on disk, and automatically copies data to physical tape under backup application control within any open systems storage environment.
Most snap-shot technologies tend to be reasonably efficient in their use of disk space, storing only changes to stored data rather than whole copies of changed files.
Working at optical wavelengths, astronomers had previously spotted just one dust disk orbiting a mature star, Beta Pictoris, says Paul Kalas of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany.
