What is Raid 0?

Also known as Disk Striping, RAID 0 offers the benefit of increased performance. Data is “striped” across multiple disks that work in concert to appear as a single partition.

Data throughput is greatly improved; however, this level of RAID offers no redundancy. If one disk fails, it breaks the entire array and results in data loss.

RAID 0 is usually implemented for caching live streams and other files where speed is important and reliability/data loss is secondary.

  • Minimum number of disks: 2
  • Pros: Increased performance (Write and read speeds).
  • Cons: No redundancy.
  • Business use: Live streaming, IPTV, Video on-demand (VOD) Edge Server
