A RAID disk subsystem improves I/O performance and data availability. The physical disk group appears to the host system either as a single storage unit or multiple logical units. Data throughput improves because several disks are accessed simultaneously. RAID sys

Dell_PERC6.1_UG.book Page 18 Wednesday, April 15, 2009 4:18 PM RAID Terminology Disk Striping Disk striping allows you to write data across multiple physical disks instead of just one physical disk. Disk striping involves partitioning each physical disk storage space into stripes of the following sizes: 8 KB, 16 KB, 32 KB, 64 KB, 128 KB, 256KB, 512KB, and 1024KB. These stripes are interleaved in a repeated sequential manner. The part of the stripe on a single physical disk is called a st
