For enterprise storage, RAID configuration is a must. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, it’s basically a bunch of hard drives working together. When you have some redundancy in the form of extra hard drives working together in a RAID array, they can be used to provide additional protection against data loss, and or improvement in read/write performance.
While RAID storage is used for many applications beyond just video storage, this great article from our friends at Camera Security Now explains some of the advantages and disadvantages of the most commonly used RAID arrays and nested RAID arrays for video storage. These same arrays are commonly used for other types of data storage, and the features of each array is the same regardless of what type of data you’re storing.
