A family of codes with a natural 2-D structure is presented, inspired by an application of redundant arrays of independent disks (RAID) type of architectures whose units are solid-state drives (SSDs). Arrays of SSDs behave differently from arrays of hard disk drives, since hard errors in sectors are common and traditional RAID approaches (like RAID 5 or RAID 6) may be either insufficient or excessive. An efficient solution to this problem is given by the new codes presented, called partial maximum distance separable (PMDS) codes.
