For example, in sentence 8a, only an expert could know whether exception is a synonym for hard error
, or whether they are two different things.
Integrated IBM-compatible cross parity error detection is combined with comprehensive error correction coding to produce a hard error
rate of less than 1 in 10-to-the-13th power bytes of data.
These features produce an unequalled hard error
rate specification of 1 error in 10 to the 17th bits-the best data specification for any tape drive available today.
Level-Six ECC for Data Integrity: An interleaved level-six RS-ECC (Reed-Solomon Error Correction Code) is used to achieve a hard error
rate of less than 10 to the -15.
Second, the level-six Reed-Solomon error correction code (RS ECC) is used to deliver a hard error
rate of less than one in 10 to the 15th power.
These effects are categorized into hard errors
and soft errors.
Most enterprises perform tape backup, and will most likely continue to do so in the foreseeable future because it plays an important role in data archiving for legal and other purposes such as data warehousing, transporting data to a new location, and/or as a second line of defense against hard errors
in addition to methods of disk-based backup, mirroring, and/or replication.
It looks for soft and hard errors
on the hard disk, notes where the error occurs and how significant the problem is, and takes corrective action if necessary.
A comapny can choose its own criteria for how many transient, soft errors and hard errors
it will allow, based on the expected environment and the reliability requirements for the equipment.
With the FalconStor solution, customers can experience an enhanced application and data availability as well as storage management capabilities, providing our mutual customers with a backup, restore, and recovery regime that helps protect their data against soft and hard errors
Errors can range from simple best-practices recommendations to hard errors
Durability is measured by the avoidance of hard errors
to the tape media as sections of tape are cycled over the drive head for a set number of passes.
