Whether you’re an IT professional, manager, or a home PC user, you’ve got more data than ever — and choosing reliable, cost-effective data storage has never been more important. In this book, one of the world’s leading experts in data storage explains all your options, and shows you how to make the most of them.
This books introduces the features, advantages, and underlying technologies associated with every current data storage option, including hard drives, DVD, CD, removable media storage systems such as Jaz and Zip, tape backup, and RAID. He presents the pros and cons of every data storage interface, including IDE, SCSI, USB, FireWire, and Fibre Channel. With the multiple overwrite feature, rewritable optical discs have found application in consumer DVD+RW video recorders, professional archiving systems and computer drives for data storage, replacing the floppy disc in the latter case.
This books also provides an overview of the recording principles, materials aspects, and application areas of phase-change optical storage. Some theoretical background is given to familiarize the reader with the basics of the phase-change processes. Elements of data recording, including mark formation, eraseability, direct overwrite strategies, data quality and data stability, etc are explained and extensively discussed. A mark formation model is described and used throughout the whole book to back-up measurement results and support the discussed applications.
