RAID 50 configurations
RAID 50 combines RAID 5 parity and stripes it as in a RAID 0 configuration. Although high in cost and complexity, performance and fault tolerance are superior to RAID 5.
Minimum number of drives required: 6
- Higher fault tolerance than RAID 5
- Higher performance than RAID 5
- Higher efficiency than RAID 5
- Very expensive
- Very complex/difficult to implement
