RAID 0/1 described
Stripe (RAID 0):
Greatly increases the performance of data transfer by simultaneously writing
data to 2 drives.
Mirror (RAID 1): duplicates or mirrors the data on both drives. No data will be
lost if one of the drives fails.
Mirror-Striping (RAID 0+1) Combined both Striping and Mirroring technologies
to provide both the performance enhancements that come from Striping and
the data availability and integrity that come from Mirroring.
RAID 1+S (Mirrored-Sparing) Can automatically replace the failed drive and
rebuild the system when booting HDD failed.
