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 RAID 0 is and why you may want to use this type of RAID to store your digital files.
- Let's take a look at RAID 0.…RAID 0 stripes data across an entire array of drives.…In the case of this graphic,…there are five individual drives…putting data into the buffer of each drive.…As each drive's buffer fills, it goes to the next drive,…filling that buffer and so on,…from A to B to C to D to E and back to A again.…By the time it gets back to A, that buffer is empty…and it's ready to take on more data.…
This is a very, very fast drive.…It can store very big amounts of data…and it's used mainly for video editing.…There is a problem, though, and the problem is…that when one of the drives fails,…it takes out all of the data on all of the drives…because they are striped from drive to drive to drive…with no parity.…RAID 0 is for speed, it is not for storage.…
