RAID 0

RAID 0 configuration

Firstly RAID 0 is not a RAID level as it provides not data protection.  RAID level 0 splits data across drives, resulting in higher data throughput. The performance of this configuration is extremely high, but a loss of any drive in the array will result in data loss. This level is commonly referred to as striping.
RAID 0

Minimum number of drives required: 2

Performance: High

Redundancy: Low

Efficiency: High

Advantages:

  • High performance
  • Easy to implement
  • Highly efficient (no parity overhead)

Disadvantages:

  • No redundancy
  • Limited business use cases due to no fault tolerance
