A brief introduction to RAID array
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks which is composed by a set of disk. According to various combinations of approaches offering different magnitude of data security, storage capacity and performing speed, RAID array has been divided into the following kinds of levels: RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 2, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 5 and RAID 10(1+0). In brief, RAID array’s main function is to organize multiple disks into a single logical disk to get higher performance.
Basic information about RAID cloning
RAID cloning is important for computer users, especially for Server users. Then, why to say so? Generally speaking, we need to clone RAID array regularly in order to enhance the security of our valuable files kept on the RAID disk. We also do RAID cloning to upgrade disk by transferring data from small disk to lager one. For instance, when all the volumes on the RAID disk run out of memory, you have no choice but to replace the hardware of RAID disk with a larger hard disk drive or a larger RAID disk. If this happens, then you need to firstly backup the data to another safe place to avoid unwanted accidents such as data loss. And, secondly, rebuild the RAID and then restore the data again. You may have found that, this is a considerably practice method, the only drawback is that it’s too complex and also too time consuming.
