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. How are these different from each other? In this video, Kevin Ames gives an overview of why it’s important to use RAIDs for storing digital files.
- This part of the course is about RAID.…No, not the insect killer,…the redundant array of inexpensive devices,…or independent devices, or drives.…RAIDs can be configured to do many different jobs.…They can be configured for speed,…they can be configured for making an exact duplicate…or mirror of data,…and they can be configured to make protected storage.…In a few minutes we'll go through each one…and I'll show you the differences.…
They are very much different than JBOD,…which stands for just a bunch of disks,…which is where most of us start out…with our storage solution.…We'll buy an external drive, it fills up,…we'll add another one,…and pretty soon we are in a JBOD situation.…That's just a bunch of disks.…
