data striping
Jump to user comments
storage Segmentation of logically sequential data, such as
a single file, so that segments can be written to multiple
physical devices (usually disk drives) in a round-robin
fashion. This technique is useful if the processor is capable
of reading or writing data faster than a single disk can
supply or accept it. While data is being transferred from the
first disk, the second disk can locate the next segment.
Data striping is used in some modern databases, such as
Sybase, and in certain RAID devices under hardware
control, such as IBM's RAMAC array subsystem (9304/9395).
