With any type of storage failures and errors happen. Depending on the setup and the their extent such failures and errors might be anything from mere annoyance to critical import. However, they all have one thing in common -- they need to be properly reported so that counter-actions and fixups (e.g. replacing a failed drive, restoring data from a backup, etc.) can happen.
In this blog post I would like to present you the storaged project you may have already heard of. It's the next evolution step of udisks2 with the goal to provide a fast, stable and scalable DBus API for storage configuration/management ranging from personal (laptop) to server (enterprise) use cases.
