A RAID 0 volume, also referred to as Integrated Striping (IS), offers the ability to stripe data across multiple hard disks. This can increase storage capacity and performance by combining multiple disks into one logical volume.
Follow these steps to create a RAID 0 volume on an adapter that does not currently have a volume configured.
The next screen shows a list of disks that can be added to a volume.
As disks are added, the Array Size field changes to reflect the size of the new volume. There are several limitations when creating a RAID 0 volume:
Note - RAID 0 does not provide any data protection in the event of disk failure. It is primarily used to increase speed.
Note - Once the number of disks in a RAID volume is set, it cannot be changed.
The Configuration Utility will pause while the array is being created.
