0.7 Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of disk subsystems. Content may include the following:
Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE/ATA)
Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics (EIDE/ATA2)
Ultra ATA / Ultra DMA
Small Computer System Interface (SCSI)
Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.)
Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL)
Serial Storage Architecture (SSA)
Storage area network (SAN)
Network-attached storage (NAS)
Disk Subsystem Transfer Rates Because most disk channels transfer bits in parallel (usually 8 bits or 16 bits), the transfer rates for disk subsystems are measured in megabytes (MB).
The disk subsystem is a very important component in network servers. Not ...
