RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)

November 20, 2013  |   Posted by :   |     |   Comments Off on RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)»


Definition: A redundant array of independent disks uses more than one disk drive to back up data or enhance performance.

What This Means: Instead of having to copy data onto another computer or tapes for back up, RAID performs back ups in real time. The redundant disks also allow applications to keep running even if one of the disk drives fails.
