What's a RAID array and why should I get one? | iMore
RAID? Like to kill ants? Nawp! Here's what RAID is and what it means to you.
I know, all I hear is the ant queen from the commercials too. But we're not talking about that kind of Raid; we're talking RAID. It's been around since the 80s, and you may have heard it tossed around if you've spent any time around PCs, but what does it mean and why does it matter to you now?
Welcome to the RAID parade.
What is RAID?
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive/independent Disks. It was created in 1988 as a means to combat the rising cost of disk drives. The creators argued that a line of inexpensive disks could outperform one expensive one. Basically, it's a row of hard drives (an array!) that join together to perform like one macdaddy hard drive. It's basically the Voltron of hard drives.
You'll often hear RAID as it relates to network attached storage or "NAS". You know in movies when you see the "mainframe" and it's rows and rows of hard drives backing up all of the evil corporation's information? That's NAS, and that's RAID in action.
There are several iterations of RAID that have been created to solve for different issues. Some are still in use, while others have been abandoned. The main ones you need to worry about are RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 5.
