RAID

Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. A bank of hard disks which is usually an extension to a computer system. Data is organised on the disks such that the failure of any single disk does not cause a total loss of data. This enables the system to continue in use while the faulty disk is replaced.

RAID

Redundant Array of Independent Disks(RAID) - A way of storing the same data in different places (thus, redundantly) on multiple hard disks. By placing data on multiple disks, I/O operations can overlap in a balanced way, improving performance. Since multiple disks increases the mean time between failure (MTBF), storing data redundantly also increas...

RAID

In computing, arrays of disks are each connected to a controller that can be configured in different ways, depending on the application. RAID 1 is, for example, disk mirroring, while RAID 6 spreads every character between disks. RAID is intended to improve data security, and can also improve performance
