Support for multiple levels of RAID provides continuous data protection and increased fault tolerance and data availability.

  • RAID 0 combines all drives into a single array offering maximum capacity with no redundancy
  • RAID 1 mirrors two arrays, creating an exact copy of data for fault tolerance
  • RAID 5 stripes the data across all four drives, interspersing parity data to provide an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity
  • RAID 6 stripes the data across all four drives but with double distributed parity, allowing up to two drives to fail without suffering data loss
  • RAID 10 mirrors two sets of hard drives and combines them into a single array, striping data across all mirrored sets for fault tolerance and increased performance
