Parts -> Storage -> RAID Storage -> Raid Controllers

RAID is used to combine the space of multiple drives in order to increase the storage space performance or stability. A RAID can consist of 2 or more drives and can be used in one of two methods.

RAID 0: Striping
  • This RAID mode is designed for speed. It does not have any fault tolerance or data protection. At least two drives are required for this mode. If one drive in RAID 0 were to fail, then there would be no way to recover data.
  • RAID 1: Mirroring
  • This RAID mode is designed for data integrity and fault tolerance. This mode is not as fast as RAID 0. However, RAID 1 uses the second drive (target drive) as a copy of the first drive (source drive).
  • Controller cards for RAID.
