    Tahoe-LAFS (Tahoe Least-Authority File System)

    Tahoe-LAFS (Tahoe Least-Authority File System) is a distributed storage system that offers provider-independent security for local or cloud storage.

  • tape drive

    A tape drive is a device that stores computer data on magnetic tape, especially for backup and archiving purposes.

  • terabyte (TB)

    A terabyte (TB) is a measurement of computer storage capacity that is equal to 1,024 gigabytes (GB). The value is sometimes rounded to 1,000 GB.

  • thick provisioning

    Thick provisioning pre-allocates storage capacity on a disk rather than on an as-needed basis.

  • thin provisioning (TP)

    Thin provisioning (TP) is a method of optimizing the efficiency with which the available space is utilized in storage area networks... (Continued)

  • thin server

    In the computer industry, a thin server is a PC that contains just enough hardware and software to support a particular function that users can share in a network, such as access to files on a storage device, access to CD-ROM drives, printing, or Internet access.

  • thin-film disk

    A thin-film disk is a hard disk storage medium with a very thin coating of a metallic alloy or glass instead of the usual carbon-based material found on other types of hard disks.

  • Tier 0

    Tier 0 (tier zero) is a level of data storage that is faster, and perhaps more expensive, than any other level in the storage hierarchy.

  • Tier 1 storage

    Tier 1 storage is a reference to the higher performing systems in a tiered storage environment.

  • tiered storage

    Tiered data storage moves data to various types of storage media -- based on performance requirements, protection level and frequency of use -- to reduce storage costs.

  • TLC flash (triple-level cell flash)

    TLC flash (triple-level cell flash) is a type of NAND flash memory that stores three bits of data per cell.

  • Travan

    Travan is a linear magnetic tape product developed by the 3M Company... (Continued)

  • TRIM

    TRIM (also spelled trim) is a specific command in a serial ATA (SATA) interface that tells an underlying NAND flash solid state storage device which data it can erase.

  • tunnel injection

    Tunnel injection, also called Fowler-Nordheim tunnel injection, is the process by which data is written to NAND flash memory.  

  • tunnel release

    Tunnel release, also called Fowler-Nordheim tunnel release, is the process by which data is erased from NAND flash memory.
