    at least one computer unit that stores at least one complete file, each file including a plurality of individual pieces, the pieces containing parts of the files, wherein at least one piece is stored in a redundant manner in the at least two data storage units;

    a controller to enable data transmission between the data storage units and the computer unit;

    wherein at least one of the data storage units and computer unit measures a data transmission performance between at least one of the data storage units and the computer unit, the at least one piece being stored by the computer unit in a redundant manner in the data storage units as a function of the measured data transmission performance, and the computer unit accessing the at least one of the data storage units as a function of the measured data transmission performance; and

    wherein at least one of the at least two data storage units measures a data transmission performance between at least two of the at least two data storage units and the data storage units copy pieces that are redundantly stored in the system from one of the data storage units to another of the data storage units independently of an access of the computer unit based on the data transmission performance measured between the data storage units.
