Going on a RAID
Subject: Storage | March 8, 2006 - 02:21 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
If you have never set up a RAID, for whatever reason, Bjorn3D has posted the first article (of 3) for you. No longer do you have to spend $1000's on HDDs, or find a RAID controller card to set one up. Once you have mastered the basics, you may be amazed how easy it is.
"The use of RAID, a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, up until a few years ago was pretty much
limited to servers and high end workstations; this was primarily due to the cost of the controller
and the accompanying hard drives. Today that's not at all the case! Most of the newer motherboards
provide one or more onboard RAID controllers capable of delivering configurations up to and
including RAID 5. With the cost of disk storage at an all time low the two primary barriers to
using this once esoteric form of data storage have been lifted."
