Which RAID type splits files, storing the file contents on separate drives?
A) RAID 0
B) RAID 1
C) RAID 5
D) RAID 5+1
The answer: A) RAID 0
The redundant array of inexpensive (or independent) disks level 0 is also called striping, since RAID 0 takes the contents of a file and copies pieces of it across more than one disk. This provides higher performance that writing the entire file to a single drive, but it doesn’t provide any redundancy of the data. If you lose one drive in a RAID 0 array, you’ve broken the array and can no longer access your files.
