  • Publication number: 20210141685
    Abstract: The system receives, by a first controller, data to be written to a first storage device. The data may not be accompanied by a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) signature. The system calculates, by the first controller, a first error detection code based on the data, and writes the data and the first error detection code to the first storage device. The system calculates a second error detection code based on the written data. The system performs a first integrity check of the written data by determining whether the second error detection code matches the first error detection code. The system performs a second integrity check of the written data by: obtaining one or more additional error detection codes from one or more other storage devices, wherein an obtained error detection code is calculated by a controller of a corresponding storage device; and determining whether the first error detection code matches the one or more additional error detection codes.
