Intel Matrix Storage
The Intel Matrix Storage technology supported allows you to
create a RAID 0 and RAID 1 set using only two identical hard disk
drives. The Intel Matrix Storage technology creates two partitions
on each hard disk drive to create a virtual RAID 0 and RAID 1 sets.
This technology also allows you to change the hard disk drive
partition size without losing any data.
RAID 10 is a striped configuration with RAID 1 segments whose
segments are RAID 1 arrays. This configuration has the same
fault tolerance as RAID 1, and has the same overhead for fault-
tolerance as mirroring alone. RAID 10 achieves high input / output
rates by striping RAID 1 segments. In some instances, a RAID 10
configuration can sustain multiple simultaneous drive failure. A
minimum of four hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or
more hard disk drives. Among the advantages of RAID 5
configuration include better HDD performance, fault tolerance,
and higher storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration is best
suited for transaction processing, relational database applications,
enterprise resource planning, and other business systems. Use a
minimum of three identical hard disk drives for this setup.
