  • hard drive

    A hard drive is a device that save a large quantity of data for later recollection.

    Most hard drives today use a magnetic system to save the data. However, those do get really hot and tend to break easily because they use a mechanical head (after 4 to 5 years.) Yet, they have an incredible capacity with drives that can hold as much as 2Tb.

    New modern drives use flash technology. This is like your USB thumb drive. It does not get hot, it is silent, it has much faster read access (no head to move.) It has two drawback: (1) it has a rather slow write and (2) the capacity is still quite small (at time of writing we are starting to get 128Gb drives...) The price is also much higher, but if you consider that these drives will probably last you twice as long as the magnetic drives and you won't need extraneous cooling systems, overall, it probably still worth it.

  • installation
  • keyfile
  • lock

    A lock is used to limit the use of shared resources in different ways. When only using the data in read mode, the lock will prevent modifications, but any number of threads and processes can access the data. When in write mode, then only the owner can access the data.
