This may help you:
It says serial ATA adds 32-bit CRC error correction for all bits transmitted,
as opposed to only data packets in Ultra ATA.
And it is known that each sector of modern disks has extra bits for ECCs to
correct errors.

I think you can find the details in the specification of serial ATA if you
have a right to access it.

Vastsky currently leaves this issue to users, since Vastsky is supposed
to work as a part of a large system such as a cloud computing system,
which may already have some kind of high-availability solution.
But I think Vastsky should support some APIs to help make a meta data
node or the meta data itself redundant easier.

Thank you,
