RAID-6 code is a class of [n=k + 2, k] systematic MDS codes to tolerate two failed drives. When RAID-6 is implemented by Reed-Solomon (RS), the penalty of the writing performance is on the field multiplications in the second parity. In this paper, we present a configuration of the factors of the secondparity formula, such that the arithmetic complexity can reach the optimal complexity bound when the code length approaches infinity. In the proposed approach, the intermediate data used for the first parity is also utilized to calculate the second parity. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first approach supporting the RAID-6 RS to approach the optimal arithmetic complexity.

This paper proposes a hybrid Gaussian Mixture Model-Universal Background Model (GMM-UBM) based speaker verification system for mobile devices in variable noisy environments. We applied a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classier in two GMM-UBM based text-independent speaker verification systems to improve the performance. In the first system, both hypothesized speaker and ...
