The authors provide a stochastic analysis of hard disk performance, including a closed form solution for the average access time of a memory request. The model they use covers a wide range of types and applications of disks, and in particular it captures modern innovations like zone bit recording. The derivation is based on an analytical technique they call \"Shuffling\", which greatly simplifies the analysis relative to previous work and provides a simple, easy-to-use formula for the average access time.
