Which of these RAID types splits data evenly across two or more disks, but does not provide any data redundancy?
A) RAID 0
B) RAID 1
C) RAID 5
D) RAID 1+0
E) If it’s not redundant, why is there an R?
The answer: A) RAID 0
RAID 0 separates data and splits it across multiple disks. While this provides some speed advantages, any drive failure breaks the entire array and user data would be lost.
