Re: Is this enough for us to have triple-parity RAID?

Hi Piergiorgio,

Just being curious, any mathematical improvement in Reed-Solomon's
code like the
RS(96,64) you mentioned? The calculation of RS involves arbitrary
multiplication in a
Galois field and table look-up has to be used. Has that already changed?

Cheers,
Alex
