  1. 1. Discovering Computers 2008 Chapter 5 Storage
  2. 2. 2Chapter 5 Objectives Differentiate among CD-ROMs,Differentiate between storage devices recordable CDs, rewritable CDs, and storage media DVD-ROMs, BD-ROMs, HD DVD- ROMs, recordable DVDs, and Describe the characteristics of rewritable DVDs magnetic disks Describe the characteristics of Identify the uses of tape a hard disk Discuss various types of miniature, Discuss PC Cards, ExpressCard external, and removable hard disks modules, and the various types of miniature storage media Describe the characteristics of optical discs Identify uses of microfilm and microfiche
  3. 3. 3Learning OutcomeSuccessful students will be able to: Describe the characteristics of computer hardware devices and explain their functionalities.
  4. 4. 4StorageWhat is storage? Holds data, instructions, and information for future use Storage medium is physical material used for storage Also called secondary storage
  5. 5. 5StorageWhat is capacity? Number of bytes (characters) a storage medium can hold Kilobyte (KB) 1 thousand Megabyte (MB) 1 million Gigabyte (GB) 1 billion Terabyte (TB) 1 trillion Petabyte (PB) 1 quadrillion Exabyte (EB) 1 quintillion Zettabyte (ZB) 1 sextillion Yottabyte (YB) 1 septillion
  6. 6. 6 Storage How does volatility compare? Storage medium is nonvolatile—contents retained when power is off Memory is volatile—holds data and instructions temporarily ON OFF Screen Display Display DisplayVolatile appears disappears Memory Data and Data and (most RAM) instructions instructions erased (chips on motherboard) available to userNonvolatile Storage Medium Contents Contents (floppy disks, Zip disks, available to user retained hard disks, CDs)
  7. 7. 7StorageWhat is a storage device? Hardware that Reading records and Writing Process of transferring retrieves items Process of transferring items from storage to and from items from memory media to memory storage media to storage media Functions as source Creates output of input
  8. 8. 8StorageWhat is access time? Time it takes storage device to locate item on storage medium Time required to deliver item from memory to processor faster Transfer rates Stores … transfer rates Primary Storage Memory (most RAM) Items waiting to be interpreted and executed by the processor Secondary Storage Hard Disk Operating system, application software, user data and information Flash Memory Cards Digital pictures or files and USB Flash Drives to be transported CDs and DVDs Software, backups, movies, music Tape Backups slower transfer Floppy Disk Small files to be transported rates
  9. 9. 9Access time & Transfer rateMemory accesses items in billionths of a second(nanoseconds)Storage devices access items in: thousandths of a second (milliseconds) or millionths of a second (microseconds)Transfer rate is the speed with which data, instruction &info transfer to & from a device, stated as: KBps & MBps
  10. 10. 10Magnetic Disks Use magnetic particles to store items on a disk’s surface Alignment of magnetic particles represents the data – either a 0 bit or a 1 bit Must be formatted first: Dividing the disk into tracks & sectors, so the OS can store & locate items on disk A sector stores up to 512 bytes of data
  11. 11. 11Magnetic Disks Track Sector is narrow recording band stores up to that forms full 512 bytes circle on disk of data Formatting prepares disk for use
  12. 12. 12Magnetic Disks For reading & writing purpose, sectors (2-8, depending on OS) are grouped into clusters Cluster (allocation unit) is the smallest unit of disk space that stores an item Each cluster holds data from only one file Even if a file consists of only few bytes, it uses an entire cluster One file, anyhow, can span many clusters Sometimes, a sector has defect & cannot store data. When format, OS marks these bad sectors as unusable
  13. 13. 13 Magnetic Disks hard disk mounted in system unitWhat is a hard disk/hard disk drive/hard drive? High-capacity storage: 80 – 750GB & more Consists of several inflexible, circular platters that store items electronically Components enclosed in airtight, sealed case for protection Longitudinal recording Perpendicular recording Fixed h/d & portable h/d
  14. 14. 14Magnetic DisksWhat are characteristics of a hard disk? Sample Hard Disk Characteristics Advertised capacity 500 GB Platters 4 Read/write heads 8 Cylinders 16,383 Bytes per second 512 Sectors per track 63 Sectors per drive 973,773,168 actual disk Revolutions per minute 7,200 capacity Transfer rate 300 MB per second Access time 8.5 ms
  15. 15. 15Magnetic Disksh/d capacity determined from num of platters andcomposition of magnetic coating on the plattersPlatter diameter: 3.5 inches in– desktop; 2.5 inches – notebook & mobile devices made of aluminum, glass or ceramic – coated with alloy – allow items to be recorded magnetically on its surface. The coating is 3 millionths of an inch thick Each has 2 read/write heads, one for each sideh/d arms move read/write heads to the proper location –read & write items in the drive as it barely touches thedisk/s recording surfaceLocation of read/write heads referred to by its cylinder – avertical section of a track that passes through all platters
  16. 16. 16Magnetic DisksHow does a hard disk work? Step 3. When software requests a disk access, read/write heads determine current Step 2. or new location of data. Small motor spins platters while computer is running. Step 4. Head actuator positions read/write head arms over Step 1. correct location on platters Circuit board controls to read or write data. movement of head actuator and a small motor.platters rotate at high speed: 5400 – 15000 revolutions per minute (rpm) – until power is removed
  17. 17. 17Magnetic Disks platterWhat is a cylinder? track Vertical section of sector track through all platters Single movement of read/write head arms accesses all platters read/write in cylinder head platter sides cylinder
  18. 18. 18Magnetic DisksWhat is a head crash? Occurs when read/write head touches platter surface Spinning creates cushion of air that floats read/write head above platter Clearance between head and platter is approximately two-millionths of an inch A smoke particle, dust particle, or human hair could render drive unusable
  19. 19. 19Magnetic DisksWhat is a disk cache/buffer? Portion of memory (memory chip on h/d) that processor uses to store frequently accessed items 2MB – 16MB (the greater, the faster the h/d) first request second request for data—to disk cache for data—to hard disk
  20. 20. 20Magnetic DisksWhat is RAID? Redundant Array of Independent Disks Connects multiple smaller disks into a single unit that acts as a single large hard disk What is backup? A duplicate of a file, program or disk placed on a separate storage medium that user can use in case the original is lost, damaged or destroyedWhat is density? Number of bits in an area on a storage medium High density = high capacity
  21. 21. 21 method- Backup method- Hard Disks How does RAID work? Disk system that duplicates data, instructions, and information to improve data reliability Mirroring has one backup disk for each disk Striping stores data across multiple disks mirroring(RAID Level 1) striping
  22. 22. 22Magnetic DisksWhat is a miniature hard disk? Provide greater storage capacities than flash memory: 4GB – 160GB – mostly use perpendicular recording Smaller than notebook computer hard disks A pocket hard drive is a self-contained unit User can insert in & remove from a slot in a device or a computer or plug-in a USB port on a computer
  23. 23. 23Magnetic DisksWhat are external hard disks and removable hard disks? Used to back up or transfer files External hard disk—freestanding Removable hard disk—hard disk hard disk that connects to system unit that you insert and remove from hard disk drive
  24. 24. 24External & Removable Hard DiskExternal h/d: Connects with cable to USB or FireWire port on SU Some include multiple h/d act as one, having capacity up to 1TBRemovable h/d: Sometimes the drive is built in the SU Others are external devices – connect with cable to USB or FireWire port on SU. Has up to 500GB capacityADVANTAGES??
