When it comes to your photos, videos, and other valuable files, don’t scrimp on data security and management. Whether it is past archives, present projects or future jobs, RAID storage solutions are a key component to optimizing and protecting your digital work.
So, what exactly is RAID? RAID stands for “Redundant Array of Independent Disks”, meaning you are putting multiple disks together for two main reasons — keeping your data safe or accessing your data fast. RAID distributes data across disks in different ways, depending on the level of RAID you choose, RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 1+0 (10).
RAID applies the “double-tired truck” principle to your data by spreading your files across 2 or more disk drives.
Not only does this speed up data access, but if one disk fails, your data is safe on the remaining disk(s)—as long as you are using RAID 1 or higher.
