You’d like to build a server that provides redundancy in the case of a drive outage, but you also want to maximize the amount of available space on the disk array. Which of these RAID types would fit this requirement?
A) RAID 0
B) RAID 1
C) RAID 5
D) RAID 1+0
E) If you keep two computers at your desk and duplicate everything you do, you’ll have perfect redundancy
The answer: C) RAID 5
RAID 5 stripes data across multiple drives, using a separate drive for parity information. This allows for complete redundancy without the need to duplicate the data.

RAID arrays are common ways to provide high-throughput and redundancy for groups of hard drives. In this module, you’ll learn how the different RAID technologies can be used to build large-scale storage infrastructures. You’ll also learn the advantages and disadvantages of the different RAID technologies and how hardware and software RAID compares.
