    Hardware RAID5 In RAID5, data is distributed to HDDs by striping and, at the same time, the parity (redundant data) is distributed to the HDDs. This mode is called "striping with distributed parity". Each of stripe x, stripe x+1, and parity (x, x+1) created from stripe x and stripe x+1 is written onto a specific HDD.

    Hardware RAID10 Data to be recorded is distributed to two HDDs in mirroring mode. Then, each mirrored data is written onto HDD by striping. Owing to this feature, high disk access performance of RAID0 and, in addition, high reliability of RAID1 can be achieved. RAID Controller HDD 1 HDD 2...

    Hardware Features of Internal RAID Controller This section describes the features of Internal RAID Controller. Rebuild If a HDD is defected, the rebuild feature can recover the data in the defected HDD. This feature can be performed to the redundant virtual disks such as RAID1,RAID5. Manual Rebuild The manual rebuild can be performed by using WebBIOS or Universal RAID Utility, the management utility of Internal RAID Controller.

  • Page 330: Patrol Read

    Hardware Patrol Read The patrol read gives the read & verify test in the entire area of HDDs. It can be performed for all HDDs assigned to virtual disks and hot-spares. The Patrol Read allows subsequent defects of HDDs to be detected and repaired. For HDDs configuring redundant virtual disks or those assigned to hot-spares, error sectors detected during Patrol Read can be repaired.

  • Page 331: Background Initialize

    Hardware Background Initialize The Background Initialize is automatically executed when RAID5 virtual disk is created in the disk group composing of five or more HDDs. The Background Initialize performs the parity generation processing in the background to the area not initialized. The processing is equivalent to that of Consistency Check. However, the Background Initialize is not performed in the following cases.
