RAID 1
  • Security

Hardly a storage concept embodies the RAID principle (Redundant Arrays of Independent Disks) as well as RAID 1 in which two or more hard disks are linked to save copies of data for access in case of system failure. Find out more about RAID 1 and why mirroring makes this network so special.

RAID 10
What is RAID 10?
  • Security

RAIDs are a good solution for improving the performance of hard drives. The individual standardized levels provide different approaches to boost reliability or the throughput rate of system networks. RAID 10 relies on complete data redundancy. Data is stored in a distributed manner and can be read quickly. Find out what’s behind the RAID level!

RAID 5
What is RAID 5?
  • Security

A Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) can be used to improve data security or the performance of storage solutions. The specific advantages of a network depend on the selected RAID level. Find out how RAID 5 – a system of three or more hard drives – can improve security and throughput rate.

RAID 0
What is RAID 0?
  • Security

A Redundant Array of Independent Disks, or RAID for short, is a combination of several hard disks to form a single logical drive. Systems like these typically follows a redundant storage concept for higher security. The standard RAID 0 is an exception because it only seeks to optimize the data throughput by coupling several hard drives.
