Title: Method and apparatus for controlling power supply to recording devices of redundant-array-of-independent-disks group

Abstract: A power supply unit supplies power for each of a plurality of power supply groups configured to supply the power to a first recording device that belongs to a first redundant-array-of-independent-disks group and a second recording device that belongs to a second redundant-array-of-independent-disks group. The second redundant-array-of-independent-disks group includes recording devices different from those of the first redundant-array-of-independent-disks group. A power-supply control unit cuts off, when a malfunctioning occurs in a specific recording device, power supply to a power supply group that includes the specific recording device.
