RAID is defined:
Redundant Array of Independent Drives
Whenever I think of RAID I think of data drives that each contain the same
information, for fault tolerance. Different RAID configurations are given
different numeric identifiers. Recently, when shopping for motherboards I saw
RAID 0 listed as a selling point for many of the boards and I assumed this
was a fault tolerance feature on these motherboards meant for gamers.
RAID 0 has nothing to do with fault tolerance. Nor redundance. In a
configuration data is spread across multiple drives with the intention of
increasing the bandwidth of data from the motherboard/CPU to the drives. It is
a technique for increasing performance that actually reduces fault tolerance.
