Basic RAID tutorial and/or info
Posted on 2005-05-03
Hi all - I'm considering at a RAID1 or 0+1 for my workstation, and while I know the basics I'd like more information on this topic. Could someone either give me a solid overview of the basic workings of RAID (like what happens when a disk dies, for example), as well as the the pros/cons of doing something like this? Links to online resources would be fine as well.
My mobo (ASUS P4P800 Deluxe) supports 0, 1 and 0+1 for the IDE RAID, and 0 or 1 for the SATA RAID. My goal is to minimize the downtime and rebuild associated with disk failure, especially bootdisk failure.
