  • 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)

    Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory, or RDRAM (Rambus DRAM), is a type of computer device active memory developed and licensed by Rambus Inc.

  • Serial ATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment or SATA)

    The SATA storage protocol transmits data in serial fashion between hard drives and computer systems. The nonprofit SATA-IO industry consortium authors the design specification.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • petabyte (PB)

    A petabyte is a unit of data storage space consisting of 1,024 terabytes, or approximately 1 million gigabytes. The prefix 'peta' refers to the fifth power of 1,000. 

  • storage volume

    A definition of volume must include a comparison of the unit of data storage to a partition, as well as insight into logical volume management, a form of storage virtualization. 

  • archive

    In enterprise data storage, an archive is a collection of infrequently accessed data that needs to be stored for long periods of time to meet backup and compliance requirements. 

  • storage array

    An array is a storage system designed to provide large pools of capacity to servers that perform high-performance computations. Arrays contain spinning disk drives or flash memory. 

  • hard disk drive (HDD)

    Hard disk drives are a type of physical storage media that use spinning disk platters to store nonsequential data in personal computers and enterprise data centers.
