Definition: RAID

RAID is the acronym for a Redundant Array of Independent Drives. RAID specifies several "levels," 0, 1, etc. Different levels provide different options. One level allows you to combine multiple smaller drives into one, huge volume. Another level offers tremendous performance boosts by "striping" data across multiple drives such that reads and writes are split across the drives. If one drive fails, the other takes over until the bad drive is replaced. Once replaced, the RAID subsystem automatically restores the mirror.
