Continuous Display Using Heterogeneous Disk-Subsystems
A number of recent technological trends have made data intensive applications such as continuous media (audio and video) servers a reality. These servers store and retrieve a large volume of data using magnetic disks. Servers consisting of heterogeneous disk drives have become a fact of life for several reasons. First, disks are mechanical devices that might fail. The failed disks are almost alwaysreplacedwith new models. Second, the currenttechnological trend for these devices is one of annual increase in both performance and storage capacity. Older disk models are discontinued because they cannot compete with the newer ones in the commercial arena. With a heterogeneous disk subsystem, the system should support continuous display while managing resources intelligently in order to maximize their utilization. This study describes a taxonomy of techniques that ensure a continuous display of objects using a heterogeneousdisk subsystem. This taxonomy consists of: (a) strategies that parti...
