I currently have a server with 500GB storage (2 physical disks, raid 0) and its already full. I've asked my provider for an upgrade of additional 1TB storage (2 physical, raid 0). These are all hardware based raid.
Almost all files from /usr/local/nginx/html are videos and have consumed the first hard disk raid.
If there ever was a “sure thing” in technology, storage is it. Everyone needs it, and the more data a company creates, the more storage it needs. And while the cloud is good for storage of large data sets, sometimes a company needs storage that is portable and instantly accessible.
Enter Imation and its RDX line of removable hard disk storage.
I have a special need for block data storage. My data are formatted data blocks in size of 4096. For high efficiency, I want to directly manipulate the block on hard disk sector and do not want to treat the data block as file. I think one way is to treat the device as a file such as /dev/sda1 and to use lseek() read() and write() to read and write data.
I have to write a small project named "Hard disk management and file management in Unix/Linux". I have absolutely NO idea about what Unix/Linux is, except that it is operational system. My question to you is: Whats is the difference between Unix and Linux and since the title of my project is as mentioned above, does it mean we are talking about the same thing?
