You’re configuring Windows 7 to build a RAID array from a series of drives. Which of these would be characteristics of software-based RAID arrays? Pick 3.
A) Software-based RAID is a feature of the operating system
B) Software-based RAID doesn’t require any special hardware
C) Software-based RAID supports mirroring and striping
D) Software-based RAID is configured outside of the operating system
E) Software-based RAID offers raspberry, cherry and floral aromas and flavors allied to a bright, lively frame
The answers: A) Software-based RAID is a feature of the operating system, B) Software-based RAID doesn’t require any special hardware, and C) Software-based RAID supports mirroring and striping
Many operating systems support RAID configurations as part of the operating system. Although the performance isn’t usually as good as hardware-based RAID arrays, the low cost and convenience of building RAID arrays without any special hardware can be a significant advantage.
