RAID 0 (Striped Array - Requires 2 disks)

Wired2Fire RD_W2F_RD0

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview

A striped array can speed up performance by placing the file data partly on one disk and partly on a second disk.  This means the system can read data from two disks at the same time, speeding up the data reading from the disk.  As there is a slight overhead to setting up a RAID, the advantage is only really noticed with larger file sizes, so video files will benefit significantly, generally gaming will not.


Also, be aware that if one disk fails you will lose your data.  So in summary you will achieve better performance but worse reliability.
