RAID tutorial
2. What is RAID?
RAID - Redundant Array of Independent Disks
RAID technology manages multiple disk drives to enhance I/O performance
and provide redundancy in order to withstand the failure of any
individual member, without loss of data. This card provides two RAID Set
types, Striped (RAID 0) and Mirrored (RAID 1).
2.1 Disk Striping (RAID 0)
Striping is a performance-oriented, non-redundant data mapping technique.
While Striping is discussed as a RAID Set type, it is actually does not provide
fault tolerance. With modern SATA bus mastering t echnology, multiple
I/O operations can be done in parallel, enhancing performance. Striping
arrays use multiple disks to form a larger virtual disk.
2.2 Disk Mirroring (RAID 1)
Disk mirroring creates an identical twin for a selected disk by having the data
simultaneously written to two disks. This redundancy provides instantaneous
protection from a single disk failure. If a read failure occurs on one drive, the
system reads the data from the other drive.
2.3 Mirrored-Striping (RAID 1+0)
A Mirrored-Striping Set does just what it says, combining both Striping and
Mirroring technologies to provide both the performance enhancements that
come from Striping and the data availability and integrity that comes
from Mirroring. When data is written to a Mirrored-Striped Set, instead of
creating just one virtual disk, as Striping would do, a second, mirrored virtual
disk is created as well.
2.4 Spare Drive (RAID 1 +S)
Spare Drive is a standby drive assigned to serve a Raid 1 Set. When a
member drive of this Raid 1 set drive fails, the Spare Drive becomes a
member drive and automatically starts to rebuild. Thus making it th e new
member of the Raid 1Set.

2.5 Parity RAID (RAID 5)
Parity or RAID 5 adds fault tolerance to Disk Striping by including parity
information with the data. Parity RAID dedicates the equivalent of one disk
for storing parity stripes. The data and parity information is arranged on the
disk array so that the parity is written to different disk. There are at least 3
members to a Parity RAID set.
2.6 JBOD (Just Bunch of Disks)
The JBOD is a virtual disk that can either be an entir e disk drive or a segment
of a single disk drive.

Chapter 3
BIOS Installation (RAID Setting)
Creating and deleting RAID sets is a function found in the BIOS. During boot
up, the RAID setting message will appear and pause for a few moments to allow
the user to choose what to do. This board will act as normal NON-RAID card
when BIOS not configured for RAID. Just proceed to Software
Installation section directly. If you use traditional parallel ATA HDD, make
sure your hard drives be set up as master mode before the RAID setting.
3.1 Creating Striped Sets (RAID 0)
1. As the BIOS boots, Press CTRL+S or F4 to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select Create RAID set. Press Enter.
3. Select Stripe then press Enter.
4. Select Auto configuration or manually select the drives Press Enter.
5. Press Y to save your settings.
6. Press CTRL+E and then press Y to exit the setup.
7. Your RAID configuration is complete. Please proceed to software installation
section.
3.2 Creating Mirrored Sets (RAID 1)
1. As the BIOS boots, Press CTRL+S or F4 to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select Create RAID set. Press Enter.
3. Select Mirrored then press Enter.
4. Select Auto configuration or manually select the drives. Press Enter.
5. Press Y to save your settings.
6. Press CTRL+E and then press Y to exit the setup.
7. Your RAID configuration is complete. Please proceed to software
installation section.
3.3 Creating a Mirrored-Striped Set (RAID 1+0)
1. As the BIOS boots, press CTRL+S or F4 to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select Create RAID set. Press Enter.
3. Select RAID 1 set then press Enter.
4. Select Auto configuration or manually select the drives. Press Enter.
5. After the Raid 1 set is created then click on Create Raid Set again.
6. Press Create the spare drive. Select the drive to be the spare.
7. Press Y to save your settings.
8. Press Ctrl-E then Y to exit the setup.
9. Your RAID configuration is complete. Please proceed to software
installation section.

3.4 Creating a Spare Drive
1. As the BIOS boots, press CTRL+S or F4 to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select Create RAID set. Press Enter.
3. Select RAID 1 set then press Enter.
4. Select Auto configuration or manually select the drives. Press Enter.
5. After the Raid 1 set is created then click on Create Raid Set again.
6. Press Create the spare drive. Select the drive to be the spare.
7. Press Y to save your settings.
8. Press Ctrl-E then Y to exit the setup.
9. Your RAID configuration is complete. Please proceed to software
installation section.
Note: Raid 1 must be created first before spare drive can be created.
3.5 Deleting RAID Sets
1. As the BIOS boots, Press CTRL+S or F4 to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select Delete RAID set. Press Enter.
3. Answer Y to remove the RAID set. If the RAID set being deleted is a Striped
set, then all of the data will be lost. If the set being deleted is a Mirrored set, then
the data will remain intact and accessible on both drives.
3.6 Rebuilding Mirrored Sets
1. After replacing the failed hard drives boot the BIOS, Press CTRL+S or F4
to enter the raid bios utility.
2. Select rebuilding Mirrored set. Press Enter.
3. Select Online rebuild or Offline rebuild.
4. Answer Y to rebuild the Mirrored set of hard drive.
3.7 Resolving Conflict
When a RAID set is created, the metadata written to the disk includes drive
connection information (Primar y and Secondary). If, after a disk failure, the
replacement disk was previously part of a RAID set (or used in another system), it
may have conflictin g metada ta, specifically in reference to the
dr ive connection information. If so, this will prohi bit the RAID set
from being either created or rebuilt, In order for the RAID set to function
properly, this old metadata must be first overwritten with the new
metadata. To resolve this, select Resolve Conflicts, and the correct metadata,
including the correct drive connection information; will be written to the
replacement disk.
