  • mirror site

    A mirrored site is a website or set of files on a server that has been copied to another server so that the site or files are available from more than one place.

  • flash memory card

    Flash storage memory cards use nonvolatile semiconductor memory to store pictures, audio and video data on portable and remote devices.

  • partition

    Partitioning a hard disk drive is the first step in preparing it for data storage. A disk partition is a carved out logical space used to manage operating systems and files.

  • RDRAM (Rambus DRAM)

  • backup storage device

    A data storage device for backup makes copies of data actively in use. Should the storage medium fail, the original data is recovered from copies on the backup hardware. 

  • storage snapshot

    A storage snapshot is a set of reference markers for data at a particular point in time. 

  • tape backup

    Tape can help fix an unstructured data backup issue and is a good archiving medium. Explore tape's strengths and weaknesses, plus important tips for protecting tape backups. 

  • serverless backup

    Serverless data backup removes backup procedures from production servers so that the time usually spent on backup functions can be used for other server tasks. 

  • partition

    Partitioning a hard disk drive is the first step in preparing it for data storage. A disk partition is a carved out logical space used to manage operating systems and files. 

  • magnetic tape

    Though it's not as big of a primary storage player anymore, tape is often an archiving vehicle. LTO and LTFS tape technologies have improved capacity and access.
