Abstract

Disclosed is a cluster approach to a load-balancing schema used to prevent bottlenecks in the hard drive during input/output processes. Using a master/slave configuration, all the salve devices listen to the master controller. When the master issues a command, any slave device that is ready (i.e., not busy) can respond; however, only one slave device communicates with the master controller.
