    Section 4 - Knowledge Base Knowledge Base What is RAID? RAID, short for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, is a combination of two or more disks with the aim of providing fault tolerance and improving performance. There are several different levels of RAID, with each one providing a different method of sharing or distributing data among the drives. The ShareCenter supports JBOD, RAIDy0, RAIDy1, RAIDy5, RAIDy6 and Standalone. RAID 0 provides data striping, which spreads RAID 1 provides mirroring over multiple disks, with out blocks of data over all drives, but does not the same read/write speed of a single disk. A RAID provide data redundancy. 1 array can only be as large as it’s smallest member disk. Although performance is improved, the lack of fault tolerance means that if one drive fails, all Because the data is stored on multiple disks, data in the array will be lost. RAID 1 provides fault tolerance and protection, in addition to performance advantages. D-Link ShareCenter Pro 1200 User Manual...

    Section 4 - Knowledge Base RAID 5 provides data striping with distributed parity, which stores information that can be used to reconstruct data. A RAID 5 array will be the size of all the combined disks capacity less the capacity of one disk, e.g. If there are 4x 80GB disks in the array, the arrays capacity will be 240GB (3x80GB). Implementing RAID 5 on the ShareCenter allows it to continue operating even if one of the disks fails. The diagram below indicates the operation of RAID 5: D-Link ShareCenter Pro 1200 User Manual...

    Section 4 - Knowledge Base RAID 6 is an extension of RAID 5. It adds an additional parity block by using block-level striping with two parity blocks distributed across all the member disks. RAID 6 allows the array to continue operating even if two of the disks fail. The diagram below indicates the operation of RAID 6: D-Link ShareCenter Pro 1200 User Manual...

  • Page 162: Hot-swap Function

    Standalone/JBOD/RAIDyO: T he data will be lost and the volume will crash, if any of the hard drives are hot swapped. RAIDy1: Y ou can hot swap the hard drives as long as one of the hard drives in the mirror is still in the ShareCenter. Removal of all hard drives will result in a loss of all data and volume will have crashed. RAIDy5: I n a RAID 5 volume, it is only possible to hot swap 1 hard drive at a time without losing all data. This is because a RAID 5 volume can only tolerate the loss of 1 hard drive and still continue to work. After hot swapping a hard drive, the volume must irst be rebuilt before another hard drive can be hot swapped, otherwise this will also result in a loss of all data and the RAID volume will have crashed. RAIDy6: I n a RAID 6 volume, it is possible to hot swap 2 hard drives at a time without losing all data. This is because a RAID 6 volume can only tolerate the loss of 2 hard drives and still continue to work. After hot swapping 2 hard drives, the volume must irst be rebuilt before another hard drive can be hot swapped, otherwise this will also result in a loss of all data and the RAID volume will have crashed. You can check the RAID coniguration from the DiskyManagement -> Volume page on the Web UI. When hot swapping hard drives, you will see the changes in the Disk(s) column. Hot swap one of the hard drives, make sure the Disk number has disappeared from the Disk(s) column, and then hot swap the next hard drive. D-Link ShareCenter Pro 1200 User Manual...
