Raid

Commented:
I am not absolutely sure, but I think that this is what you are refering to:

R = Redundant
A = Array of
I  = Independant or Inexpensive
D = Disks

RAID Bank Switching:

         Refers to banks, also called bays of disks, in RAID, multiple disks operate both independant of each other, while still working with each other. RAID systems are generally rack-mounted, with one disk sitting in whats called a bay or bank, if this disk fails, switching disks is as easy as pulling out the bad disk bay or bank, and installing another disk in the bay or bank and mounting it back into rack.
       
Hope that helps.
