What is RAID 0 and its features, advantage and disadvantage?

RAID Level 0 Definition: RAID 0, or Redundant Array of Independent Disks, Level 0 – also called striping – is a method of storing data on multiple computer storage devices – usually hard disks or disk partitions – by interleaving the data and spreading it across the devices usually achieving faster read and write speeds. Common Name(s): RAID 0. (Note that the term “RAID 0” is sometimes used to mean not only the conventional striping technique described here but also other “non-redundant” ways of setting up disk arrays. Sometimes it is (probably incorrectly) used just to describe a collection of disks that doesn’t use redundancy.) Description: The simplest RAID level, RAID 0 should really be called “RAID”, since it involves no redundancy. Files are broken into stripes of a size dictated by the user-defined stripe size of the array, and stripes are sent to each disk in the array. Giving … Continue reading
