Unformatted text preview: CSE 421/521 - Operating Systems Fall 2011 RAID Structure • As disks get cheaper, adding multiple disks to the same system provides increased storage space, as well as increased reliability and performance. Lecture - XX Mass Storage & IO - II • RAID: Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks – multiple disk drives provides reliability via redundancy. • RAID is arranged into six different levels. Tevfik Koşar University at Buffalo November 10th, 2011 1 RAID Levels RAID (cont) • RAID schemes improve performance and improve the reliability of the storage system by storing redundant data. – Data Striping: splitting each bit (or block) of a file across multiple disks. – Mirroring (shadowing): duplicate each disk • Simplest but most expensive approach – Block interleaved parity uses much less redundancy. RAID Level 0 RAID Level 0 - block level ! ! ! ! 5 6 RAID Level 1 RAID Level 1 - block level ! ! ! ! ! 7 RAID Level 2 8 RAID Level 2 - bit level ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 9 RAID Level 3 10 RAID Level 3 - byte level ! ! ! ! ! 11 12 RAID Level 4 RAID Level 4 - block level ! ! ! 13 RAID Level 5 14 RAID Level 5 ! ! ! ! ! ! 15 RAID Level 6 16 RAID Level 6 ! ! – more reliability versus less data space ! 17 18 RAID (0+1) and (1+0) RAID (0+1) and (1+0) ! ! 19 RAID (0+1) and (1+0) RAID 0+1 20 Any Questions?
