With StrongBox, customers are able to reduce their dependency on RAID-based disk storage solutions.
What is RAID?
Short for redundant array of independent disks, RAID refers to a storage technique that combines multiple disk drives in order to meet a specific level of redundancy or performance required. Different levels of RAID are required to meet protection needs. Essentially, data is mirrored on multiple disks within the array such that if one disk fails, data is recoverable from the redundant copy. While necessary for data protection, this can make disk storage very expensive and reduces the amount of usable capacity in disk storage systems due to redundant data copies within a server or disk array.
