  • Page 10: Using This Guide

    Using This Guide This User’s Guide provides a quick reference to information about your S1300 Disk Array Unit (DAU). Its goal is to familiarize you with your DAU and the tasks necessary for setting up your DAU, using the DAU, and configuring and upgrading the DAU. This guide assumes that the reader is already familiar with the host system, Fibre Channel technology, and operating system environments in which the DAU will be installed.

  • Page 15 Overview The NEC S1300 Disk Array Unit (DAU) provides highly available, fault-tolerant storage in a rack-mount subsystem. The DAU uses high-speed Fibre Channel technology. See Figure 1-1. The Fibre Channel is a scalable, high-performance interconnect standard that enables fast transfer of data between workstations, shared storage, peripherals and host systems.

    For RAID level 3 and 5 redundancy, a consistency check will involve reading all associated data blocks, computing parity, reading parity, and verifying that the computed parity matches the read parity. Glossary 1 This Manual:http://www.manuallib.com/nec/s1300ug-disk-array-unit-user-guide.html...
  • Page 95 When something is fault-tolerant it is resistant to failure. A RAID 1 mirrored subsystem, for example, is fault-tolerant because it can still provide disk I/O if one of the disk drives in a mirrored system fails. F_Port A port in the fabric where an N_port or NL_port may attach. 2 Glossary This Manual:http://www.manuallib.com/nec/s1300ug-disk-array-unit-user-guide.html...
  • Page 96 Refers to the 100% duplication of data on one disk drive to another disk drive. Each disk will be the mirror image of the other. Partition An array virtual disk made up of logical disks rather than physical ones. Also called logical volume.

  • Page 97 The regeneration of all data from a failed disk in a RAID level 1, 3, 5, or 6 array to a replacement disk. A disk rebuild normally occurs without interruption of application access to data stored on the array virtual disk. 4 Glossary This Manual:http://www.manuallib.com/nec/s1300ug-disk-array-unit-user-guide.html...
  • Page 98 The order in which SCSI Drives appear within a Physical Pack. This order must be maintained, and is critical to the controller’s ability to “Rebuild” failed drives. Stripe Width Refers to the number of kilobytes per stripe block. Glossary 5 This Manual:http://www.manuallib.com/nec/s1300ug-disk-array-unit-user-guide.html...
  • Page 99 This caching strategy is considered more “secure,” since a power failure will be less likely to cause loss of data. However, a Write-Through cache results in a slightly lower performance, in most environments. 6 Glossary This Manual:http://www.manuallib.com/nec/s1300ug-disk-array-unit-user-guide.html...
