MAID DEFINITION (continued): …  high-volume tape libraries. A MAID is usually constructed with low-cost Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) drives, which have shorter mean time between failure (MTBF) ratings than more expensive drives. When MAID is implemented, every drive is periodically tested. If a drive shows signs of failure, data is transferred to other drives. A MAID has far greater storage density than a RAID (redundant array of independent disks) system of equal cost. In addition to reducing power consumption, the cooling requirements of MAID are also reduced. Limitations of MAID include lower throughput than …
