twitter's Journal: Oracle Data Integrity Check Leaves Windows Out.

Journal by twitter

The flexibility of free software is shining though in a new data integrity scheme that may never be implemented on non free software.

[Oracle Emulex, LSI, and Seagate] have formed the Data Integrity Initiative, and say their work will use the DIF (data integrity field) spec developed by the ANSI T10 committee - DIF allows 8 bytes of "protection information" to be added to each logical SCSI block. Having a standard data checking mechanism allows data integrity to be verified all the way from the application through the storage network to the disk drive, the DII companies claimed. ... the initial DII thrust Linux-only, with no schedule yet for Windows or Unix implementation.
