SoftRAID 3 vs. Apple's RAID
and Apple Disk Utility
What are the Benefits of SoftRAID's software RAID solution over Apple's
free RAID solution?
Flexibility, Reliability, and Usability are the three main distinctions between Apple's Disk Utility and
SoftRAID 3. Apple's Disk Utility includes a basic RAID capability but does not offer the flexibility of combining volume types on a disk and changing volume configurations. Disk Utility's usability is limited by its no-frills interface and command line rebuild procedures, and its reliability is reduced by its absence of error checking and reporting.
SoftRAID 3 gives you a full-featured application which reports to you on the status of your volumes even when the application is not running. It's easy-to-use interface provides all the information you need for the seamless creation and maintenance of your RAID and non-RAID volumes.
