Continuing Education and Refresher Time (RAID and LUNs)

February 20, 2008 – 6:42 pm

Storage I/O trends

TechTarget is currently running a refresher and primer series on RAID technology at combining several tips pertaining to RAID basics, what RAID level to use for different applications and more. RAID is around 20 years old depending on how you view it and define it and some are now decrying RAID as being dead which for some implementations may be the case, however the underlying premises still hold, its just time for some new implementation and evolutionary changes. In the meantime, back at planet reality and today-land, check it out for a primer, refresh, or to see if RAID is even still relevant.

Another Primer and refresh series that is appearing on TechTarget is about LUNs. For those of you new to data storage, or, for those who need a refresh, these are a good source of primer or back ground material. Check out the LUN series here.

Ok, nuff said.
