    Motherboard Manual CHAPTER 4: RAID FUNCTIONS PERATING YSTEM Supports Windows XP Home/Professional Edition, and Windows Vista. RRAYS RAID supports the following types of RAID arrays: RAID 0: RAID 0 defines a disk striping scheme that improves disk read and write times for many applications.

  • Page 21

    A780GE/A760GE/A780LE/A785GE RAID 1: Every read and write is actually carried out in parallel across 2 disk drives in a RAID 1 array system. The mirrored (backup) copy of the data can reside on the same disk or on a second redundant drive in the array. RAID 1 provides a hot-standby copy of data if the active volume or drive is corrupted or becomes unavailable because of a hardware failure.

  • Page 22

    Motherboard Manual RAID 1+0: RAID 1 drives can be stripped using RAID 0 techniques. Resulting in a RAID 1+0 solution for improved resiliency, performance and rebuild performance. Features and Benefits Drives: Minimum 4, and maximum is 6 or 8, depending on the platform. Benefits: Optimizes for both fault tolerance and performance, allowing for automatic redundancy.
