As mass storage medium, RAID is widely used in server and has become the indispensable storage device of highly reliable network solution. RAID is made up by several disks that have similar performance by certain order and Disk Array Controller. RAID has features of high speed, large capacity, and high security, etc. With redundancy error check technique, mirrored data, data segmentation and parity check technique, etc, it keeps its reliability of device and data. It is the intelligent disk array that also has high fault-tolerant function. Now, with the development of RAID technique, we have 7 levels from RAID 0 to RAID 6, and other RAID forms such as RAID 10 and RAID 50. Different levels of RAID represent different storage performance, data security, and storage cost. Users can choose from them according to different conditions. RAID has become the first choice of enterprises' servers.
