RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) - Definition

RAID is an abbreviation for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. It is a method of spreading information across several disks set up to act as a unit, using two different techniques: Disk striping: storing a bit of information across several discs (instead of storing it all on one disc and hoping that the disc doesn't crash). Disk mirroring: simultaneously storing a copy of information on another disc so that the information can be recovered if the main disc crashes.
