RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives. RAIDs can be configured for a few reasons, which are speed, making an exact duplicate of data, and for protective storage. In this video, Kevin Ames discusses what proprietary RAIDs are on the market and gives an overview of how they work.
- Proprietary RAID 5 systems,…like those from Drobo or Synology,…come in two different flavors.…One is network attached storage.…Where there's actually a computer built into the device…that attaches to a network.…This means that as long as it's running…it can be accessed from anywhere in the world…over your network if you can access your network…from anywhere in the world.…The other type of storage is desktop attached storage.…This means the drive is plugged directly…into a desktop machine,…very much like an external hard drive would be attached.…
There are many different configurations of attachment.…There's USBC, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 2,…and there are some old legacy drives that use fire wire.…Synology offers their hybrid RAID,…which is similar to Drobo's Beyond RAID technology.…Beyond RAID means that you can start with just two drives.…Let me show you the inside of the Drobo.…Here we have five bays.…
The bottom two bays have two drives in them…and the top two bays have two drives.…There is another bay that doesn't…
