Maintaining the JATP700 RAID Array
Redundant array of inexpensive disk (RAID) is a method of storing large amounts of application data used for data redundancy, performance improvement, or both. There are different RAID levels designed to increase data reliability and I/O performance.
The key concepts in RAID are:
Mirroring—Copy data to more than one disk
Striping—Split data across more than one disk
Error correction—Redundant data storage to detect and resolve problems
The JATP700 appliance uses the RAID6 configuration. In RAID6, drives are duplicated for fault tolerance.
