INTRODUCTION chips, which can simultaneously communicate with the I/O proces- sor and read or write data on multiple drives. Unsurpassed Data Availability As storage capacity requirements continue to rapidly increase, us- ers require greater levels of disk drive fault tolerance, which can be implemented without doubling the investment in disk drives. RAID 1 (mirroring) provides high fault tolerance. However, half of the drive capacity of the array is lost to mirroring, making it too costly

A RAID set contains one or more volume set

INTRODUCTION In the illustration, volume 1 can be assigned a RAID level 5 of operation while volume 0 might be assigned a RAID level 1E of operation. Alterantively, the free space can be used to create vol- ume 2, which could then be set to use RAID level 5. 1.3.3 Ease of Use Features 1.3.3.1 Foreground Availability/Background Initial- ization RAID 0 and RAID 1 volume sets can be used immediately af- ter creation because they do not create parity data. However, RAID 3, 5 and 6 volume sets m

INTRODUCTION mation or data on that RAID set. Therefore, if a server fails, the RAID set disk drives can be moved to another server with an Areca RAID controller and the disks can be inserted in any order. 1.3.3.3 Online Capacity Expansion Online Capacity Expansion makes it possible to add one or more physical drives to a volume set without interrupting server op- eration, eliminating the need to backup and restore after recon- figuration of the RAID set. When disks are added to a RAID set,

INTRODUCTION The expansion process is illustrated as following figure. The SATA RAID controller redistributes the original volume set over the original and newly added disks, using the same fault- tolerance configuration. The unused capacity on the expand RAID set can then be used to create an additional volume set, with a different fault tolerance setting (if required by the user.) The SATA RAID controller redistributes the original volume set over the original and newly added disks, us

INTRODUCTION 1.3.3.4 Online RAID Level and Stripe Size Migration For those who wish to later upgrade to any RAID capabilities, a system with Areca online RAID level/stripe size migration allows a simplified upgrade to any supported RAID level without having to reinstall the operating system. The SATA RAID controllers can migrate both the RAID level and stripe size of an existing volume set, while the server is on- line and the volume set is in use. Online RAID level/stripe size migration

Windows, NetWare and other advanced operating systems sup- port volume expansion, which enables you to incorporate the additional free space within the volume into the operating sys- tem partition. The operating system partition is extended to incorporate the free space so it can be used by the operating system without creating a
