Requirements and Challenges
As the business expands, the scale and complexity of storage systems increase as more and more mass storage systems go online. Disk failures are accountable of more than 80% of the total incidents in the data centers. The high failure rate challenges the reliability of customer data and the capability of the company delivering enterprise level services.
