RAID 50 Interleave White Paper

RAID 50 Interleave White Paper

Traditional RAID Systems have tended to use RAID 5 as the most cost effective means of providing fault tolerant protection for large volumes of data. The emergence of large capacity configurations from applications including Disk to Disk Backup, Virtual Tape disk farms, CDP and CAS are driving the push to tiered storage. Increasingly complex configurations and the consolidation of storage on to storage networks are stretching the RAID 5 approach. RAID 50 Interleave is a new advanced multi-drive failure tolerant implementation of RAID 5 from MPSTOR and Xtore.

Increasing use of drives with lower MTBF, larger capacity drives and a larger number of drives per array have increased the likelihood of drive failures, extended rebuild times, data loss, server downtime and expensive restore procedures. Learn how to avoid these pitfalls and create a Tiered Storage Architecture that:

  • Delivers on the promise of ILM
  • Automates and simplifies storage management
  • Dramatically reduces Storage TCO
