Easy Guide to RAID Recovery
by Alexandria Haber
What is RAID RECOVERY?
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. It is a method
of combining several hard drives into one unit. This method offers
fault tolerance (the ability of a system to continue to perform
functions even when one or more hard disk drives have failed) and
higher protection against data loss than a single hard drive.
Why do I need RAID RECOVERY?
RAID provides real-time data recovery when a hard drive fails, increasing
system uptime and network availability while protecting against
loss of data. Another advantage of the system is that multiple disks
working together increase overall system performance. Any individual
or company could benefit from having a RAID RECOVERY system in place.
There are several different levels of RAID available. Each level
offers various advantages in terms of data availability, cost and
performance. Your best bet is to assess your needs in order to determine
which level works best for you. The most popular RAID systems are
RAID 0 - Data striping (no data protection). The benefit
of this system is that it offers the highest performance.
RAID 1- Disk Mirroring (provides data protection by duplicating
all data from a primary drive on a secondary drive). The benefit
of this system is it offers the highest data protection.
RAID 0/1- This combines both Raids 0 and 1. The benefit
here is highest performance + highest data protection.
RAID 5 - Data striping with distributed parity (a form of
data protection that recreates the data of failed drive in a disk
array). This system offers the best cost performance for multidrive
Having a RAID system installed can provide peace of mind. With
RAID installed you can rest assured that even in the event of a
system failure your important data will be safe.
