Running Different Types Of Raids

Recommended Posts

Is it possible for computers to support multiple types of RAID simultaneously? As in, could I run RAID 0 for the increased performance, as well as operate a RAID 1 to have a mirror drive, just in case one of my RAID 0 drives fails?

Thanks for any advice.

yes that is called raid 10 or 01

10 striping and then mirror the strips

or 01 mirrors that you strip across

in any case I do not trust an operating system to do this as when you loose power you loose changes (well ZFS is an exception)

so expensive raid controllers with built in memory and battery back up are needed
