Example—RAID-0 (Concatenated Stripe) Volume

Figure 8–3 illustrates a concatenated stripe volume that is a concatenation of three stripes.

The first stripe consists of three slices, Slice A through C, with an interlace value of 16 Kbytes. The second stripe consists of two slices, Slice D and E, and uses an interlace value of 32 Kbytes. The last stripe consists of a two slices, Slice F and G. Because no interlace value is specified for the third stripe, it inherits the value from the stripe that was added before it, which in this case is 32 Kbytes. Sequential data blocks are added to the first stripe until that stripe has no more space. Data blocks are then added to the second stripe. When this stripe has no more space, data blocks are added to the third stripe. Within each stripe, the data blocks are interleaved according to the specified interlace value.

Diagram shows how several stripes are concatenated together to
present a single larger logical RAID-0 volume.
