RAID 0 (disk striping)

Contributor(s): Kim Hefner

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 physical drives, 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.
