• RAID 6 (redundant array of independent disks)

    RAID 6, also known as double-parity RAID, uses two parity stripes on each disk. It allows for two disk failures within the RAID set before any data is lost.

  • RAID 3 (redundant array of independent disks)

    RAID 3 is a RAID configuration that uses striping and parity, but it uses a parity disk to store the parity information generated by a RAID controller instead of striping it with the data.

  • RAID 2

    RAID 2 is a technique that stripes data at the bit level using a Hamming code to detect errors.

  • RAID 0 (disk striping)

    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.

  • RAID rebuild

    A RAID rebuild is the data reconstruction process that occurs in a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) implementation when a hard disk drive fails. 

  • RAID controller

    A RAID controller is a device used to manage hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs) in a computer or storage array so they work as a logical unit and the data on the drives is protected. 

  • VHDCI (Very High Density Cable Interconnect)

    Very High Density Cable Interconnect (VHDCI) is a compact 68-contact multipurpose connection type. VHDCI is optimized for applications that require high-performance but have space limitations. The technology is most commonly used in SCSI-3 hard drive... 

  • hot spare

    A hot spare, also called a hot standby, is a backup component that can be placed into service immediately when a primary component fails.  

  • RAID (redundant array of independent disks)

    RAID (redundant array of independent disks; originally redundant array of inexpensive disks) is a way of storing the same data in different places (thus, redundantly) on multiple hard disks. By placing data on multiple disks, I/O (input/output) oper...
