This paper analyzes real-world data on the prevalence of data corruption due to storage stack components such as disk drives, and analyzes its characteristics such as dependence on disk-drive type, spatial and temporal locality, and correlation with workload.

This paper presents one of the largest disk-drive studies ever—examining 1.53 million disk drives in the field—for occurrences and characteristics of latent sector errors; it finds that such errors are non-independent events, depend on the type of disk drive, and have spatial and temporal locality.
