    Abstract

    An examination is made of alternative choices for encodings, or codes, that reliably store information in disk arrays. Codes are selected to maximize mean time to data loss or minimize disks containing redundant data, but are all constrained to minimize performance penalties associated with updating information or recovering from catastrophic disk failures. The authors show codes that give highly reliable data storage with low redundant data overhead for arrays of 1000 information disks.
