Definitions for "RAID 0"
In RAID 0 (Stripping) data safety and access speed are also increased by joining several disks in a group. However, the data blocks are not processed in a linear fashion, but in parallel on the various hard disks. To do so, the data block is evenly distributed among the hard disks. However, if one hard disks fails under RAID 0, there is always data loss.
(data striping) - file blocks are written to separate drives. Does not provide fault tolerance, because failure of one drive will result in data loss.
Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks – non-redundant striped array. Technically there is no redundancy at this level, but it does provide for speed advantages, compared with a single disk drive, by striping data in parallel sectors across multiple disk drives. The I/O transfer speed is increased for this architecture, however, a single drive element failure can result in an irrecoverable data loss. See also RAID.
