Techopedia explains Data Protection Scheme
A data protection scheme uses data protection algorithms to eliminate or minimize data loss in a storage environment. A data protection scheme generally provides a higher mean time between data loss (MTBDL) than a RAID-based data protection platform. Typically, a data protection scheme helps in quickly rebuilding a storage drive and reduces storage protection costs. It uses a higher processing capacity of processors and data protection algorithms to provide enhanced, quick and cost effective data protection.
