Adaptec FS4100 Driver
This document is intended to provide insight into the best practices for routine maintenance of Adaptec RAID systems. These maintenance best practices are recommended to all Adaptec RAID customers to help avoid data loss, maintain data integrity and minimize downtime. The use of these practices will ensure a better customer Adaptec FS4100 through maintaining the integrity of data and minimizing the costs of downtime.
It is important to understand both Adaptec FS4100 benefits of RAID and its limitations. Many RAID users tend Adaptec FS4100 be complacent with maintenance and backups due to the common misconception that their data is foolproof and invulnerable.

RAID is the most common method of data protection and most companies rely on the redundancy provided by RAID at various levels to protect them from disk drive failures. RAID cannot protect Adaptec FS4100 against virus attack, human error, data deletion, Adaptec FS4100 natural or unnatural disaster. Adaptec Technical Support often sees cases where an array is in a degraded state for a longer period of time and data loss then occurs when a further drive finally fails.

The best RAID controller cannot help in this situation. In addition Adaptec FS4100 timely Adaptec FS4100, periodic backup still remains one of the most critical practices in data operations. Disk drives are orders of magnitude larger than they were when RAID was first introduced.
As disk drives have gotten larger, their reliability has not improved, and, more importantly, the bit error likelihood per drive has increased proportionally with the larger media. These three factors—larger Adaptec FS4100, unimproved reliability, and increased bit errors with larger media—all Adaptec FS4100 serious consequences for the ability of RAID to protect data.
The risk of data loss is further compounded when lower-cost SATA disks desktop edition drives are employed for workloadappropriate applications.
Hard drive media defects and other drive quality issues have steadily improved over time, even as drive sizes have grown substantially. However, hard drives Adaptec FS4100 not expected to be totally free of flaws. That write operation is not complete until the data is properly written in a Adaptec FS4100 location.
When a bad block is encountered during a normal read operation, the controller will reconstruct the missing data from parity operations and remap the data to the new location. This double fault scenario can also occur while rebuilding a degraded Adaptec FS4100, leaving the controller with insufficient parity information to reconstruct the data stripe.
The end result is a rebuild failure with the loss of any data in that stripe, Adaptec FS4100 the stripe is in the user data area.

Page 1 In the past when drive capacities were smaller, this type of problem was less likely to occur because small arrays typically contain fewer media defects than large arrays. Medium errors are specified as x number of defects per y number Adaptec FS4100 bits. Therefore, larger drives are prone to more defects because they contain a greater number of Adaptec FS4100 and the disks are written with a higher density.
Today, hard drive capacities have increased remarkably, and the likelihood has grown that one or more media defects will occur over the lifespan of the drive. In addition, large arrays take longer to rebuild than small arrays, thus increasing the amount of time Adaptec FS4100 array is not redundant.
RAID-5 implementations use single parity to protect against single disk failure. Single disk failure is the issue.
Traditional single-parity RAID offers adequate protection against a single failure Adaptec FS4100. The caveat is that no other disk failure or uncorrectable media error can occur while reconstruction is still in progress.
During normal operation, if there is an unrecoverable error and the event is a read error, then recreating data from parity occurs almost Adaptec FS4100, and the array remains online. However, if Adaptec FS4100 disk Adaptec FS4100 a RAID-5 group fails, then all its data has to be recreated, and the array remains in a vulnerable degraded mode without parity protection until data has been reconstructed onto a spare disk.
For a high-density or slow disk, that could be a very long time. RAID-6 with a dual-parity configuration offers a greatly enhanced data protection against any two disk failure events occurring in the same RAID group.
