Questions tagged [raid-0]

Redundant Array of Independent Drives or Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives also known as RAID is a way to create a sub-storage system comprising several individual discs. RAID-0(also know as striping) is the level of RAID technique used to improve read performance. Over this configuration the data are subdivided into consecutive segments (stripes, or bands) that are written sequentially through each of the disks of an array or set.
