Disk arrays

Nov 27, 2010


A disk array is a disk storage system which contains multiple disk drives. It is differentiated from a disk enclosure, in that an array has cache memory and advanced functionality, like RAID and virtualization.

Disk array refers to a linked group of one or more physical independent hard disk drives generally used to replace larger, single disk drive systems. The most common disk arrays are in daisy chain configuration or implement RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) technology. A disk array may contain several disk drive trays, and is structured to improve speed and increase protection against loss of data.

Disk arrays organize their data storage into Logical Units (LUs), which appear as linear block paces to their clients. A small disk array, with a few disks, might support up to 8 LUs; a large one, with hundreds of disk drives, can support thousands.
