Memory versus storage l.jpg
MEMORY VERSUS STORAGE

  • Memory

    • Fast

    • Short term

    • RAM is Volatile

    • Holds the current program and its data


Memory versus storage4 l.jpg
MEMORY VERSUS STORAGE

  • Storage

    • Slower

    • Long term

    • Nonvolatile

    • Stores programs and data for future use

    • Can be thought of as both input and output device

      • Input: read data from storage into memory

      • Output: transfer data from memory to storage


Memory versus storage5 l.jpg
MEMORY VERSUS STORAGE

  • Storage Capacity: how many bytes (characters) a storage medium can hold

    • Kilobyte (KB) = 1 thousand (1,000)

    • Megabyte (MB) = 1 million (1,000,000)

    • Gigabyte (GB) = 1 billion (1,000,000,000)

    • Terabyte (TB) = 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000)

    • Petabyte (PB) = 1 quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000)

    • Exabyte (EB) = 1 quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000)


Storage l.jpg

Stores …

Primary Storage

Memory (most RAM)

Items waiting to be interpretedand executed by the processor

Secondary Storage

Hard Disk

Operating system, applicationsoftware, user data and information

CDs and DVDs

Software, backups, movies, music

Miniature Storage Media

Digital pictures or small files tobe transported

Tape

Backups

Floppy Disk

Small files to be transported

STORAGE

  • What is access time?

    • Time it take storage device to locate and retrieve an item.

Floppy disks l.jpg
FLOPPY DISKS

  • Characteristics of a Floppy Disk

    • Magnetic

    • Size

      • 3.5-inch, 5.25-inch

    • Anatomy

  • Shutter

  • Shell

  • Liner

  • Disk

  • Hub

  • Write-protect notch


Floppy disks8 l.jpg
FLOPPY DISKS

  • Characteristics of a Floppy Disk

    • Formatting: preparing a floppy disk for use

      • Track

      • Sector

      • Cluster

    • Capacity = sides x tracks x sectors per track x bytes per sector

    • File allocation table (FAT)

How the Floppy Drive Works


Floppy disks9 l.jpg

Zip disk

FLOPPY DISKS

  • Zip Disks

    • 100 MB to 750 MB

    • The larger ones areequivalent to about500 diskettes!

    • Require a zip drive


Hard disks l.jpg
HARD DISKS

  • Primary media for storing software programs and files

  • Up to 160 GB capacity and more on PC hard disk

  • Consists of several platters


Hard disks11 l.jpg

Sample Hard Disk Characteristics

Advertised capacity 40 GB

Platters 2

Read/write heads 4

Cylinders 16,383

Bytes per second 512

Sectors per track 63

Sectors per drive 78,165,360

Revolutions per minute 7,200

Transfer rate 100 MB per second

Access time 9 ms

HARD DISKS

  • Characteristics of a Hard Disk

actualdiskcapacity


Hard disks12 l.jpg

Clearance is approximately two millionths of an inch

HARD DISKS

  • How a Hard Disk Works

    • Arms move read/write heads to proper location on the platters

    • Read/write head floats above platter

    • How it Works

HARD DISKS

  • How a Hard Disk Works

    • Cylinder: location of a single track through all platters

    • Disk cache improves performance

    • Partitions function as separate drives


Hard disks14 l.jpg
HARD DISKS

  • External Hard Disks

    • Capacities up to 250 GB or more

  • Removable Hard Disks

    • Large storage capacity (60 GB or more)

    • Easily transported

    • Iomega’s Peerless disk (up to 40 GB)

  • USB Portable Drives

    • Capacity up to 1 GB

    • Fit on a key chain


Hard disks15 l.jpg
HARD DISKS

  • RAID

    • Redundant array of independent disks

    • Increased reliability through redundancy

    • Expensive

    • Many levels of RAID

      • Mirroring

      • Striping

HARD DISKS

  • Maintaining Data Stored on a Hard Disk

    • Preventative maintenance

      • Backup

      • Defragmentation


Hard disks17 l.jpg
HARD DISKS

  • Internet Hard Drive (Online Storage)

    • Service on the web that provides storage to computer users

    • Fee usually involved

    • Iomega’s iStorage


Cds and dvds l.jpg

Disc sectors

Single track spirals to edge of disc

CDs and DVDs

  • Used to distribute software packages

  • Uses a laser beam to read and write data

  • Stores items in spiraling tracks

    • Sectors are all the same size


Cds and dvds19 l.jpg
CDs and DVDs

    • Capacity: about 650 MB = 450 diskettes to 1GB

    • CD-ROM drive speed

How the CD-ROM Works

CDs and DVDs

  • Writable CDs

    • CD-R (compact disc-recordable)

    • CD-RW (compact disc-rewritable)

      • Erasable

      • Can read any format CD

      • Older CD-ROM drives can’t read them

    • Photo CD

  • Can hold much more data than CD-ROMs

    • 4.7 GB to 17 GB

  • Higher quality than CD-ROMs

  • Often used for video


Cds and dvds22 l.jpg
CDs and DVDs

  • DVD variations

    • Digital movies and audio

    • DVD-R is single-session recordable

    • DVD+RW is rewritable


Magnetic tapes l.jpg
MAGNETIC TAPES

  • Cost effective way to store large amounts of infrequently used data

  • Types:

    • Reel-to-reel on older systems

    • Tape cartridge

  • Access technique:

    • Sequential access (tapes)

    • Direct access (floppy disks, hard disks, CDs, DVDs)


Pc cards l.jpg
PC CARDS

  • Thin, credit card-sized device that fits into a PC Card expansion slot of laptop

  • Add storage, memory, communications, and sound capabilities


Other types of storage l.jpg
OTHER TYPES OF STORAGE

  • Smart Cards

    • Similar in size to credit card or ATM card

    • Has an embedded microprocessor

    • Types:

      • Intelligent (with a microprocessor)

      • Memory card (storage only, as with a digital camera)

    • Prepaid smart cards

    • Electronic money

Microfilm 100 years 500 years

OTHER TYPES OF STORAGE

  • Microfilm and Microfiche

    • Stores microscopic images of documents on roll or sheet film
