Super summary of these RAID types.

By wallabing

  1. So from learning about raid, are these right?

    RAID 0 - Combine two or more hard drives together, making them into one big one, which also may make them go faster.

    RAID 1 - Two or more hard drives duplicate each other exactly at all times.

    Well, most RAID levels combine many hard drives together to make them look like one or many bigger ones.

    It's more like:
    RAID0 - spread data across all drives evenly for faster read/write.
    RAID1 - two hard drives duplicate each other. Faster read times come as a bonus.
