RAID 0, also known as disk striping, is a
technique that breaks up a file
and spreads the data across all the disk drives in a RAID group.
The benefit of RAID 0 is that it improves performance. Because striping
spreads data across more
multiple disks can access the contents of a file, allowing writes and reads to be completed more
quickly. A drawback to RAID 0 is that it does not have parity. If a drive should fail,
there is no redundancy and all
data would be lost.
