Overview: This paper from Xtore Extreme Storage describes about the emergence of large capacity configurations from applications including Disk to Disk Back up, Virtual Tape disk farms, Continuous Data Protection CDP, Content Addressable Storage, and Regulatory driven extended retention times, and Archive are driving the push to tiered storage. Configurations increasingly incorporate a mixture of Enterprise, Nearline, and Desktop drives. The consolidation of storage on to Storage Networks and the addition of mixed use and archive information management to online mission critical systems are stretching the RAID 5 approach.
