RAID technology is a fantastic feature for Lotus Notes. It safeguards data in the event of a hard drive failure. It combines multiple hard disk drives into one file system, and utilizes fail-tolerance to rebuild facts in the event that one drive fails. It’s particularly beneficial for businesses that use multiple hard drives and need to ensure that their data is always accessible.
A typical raid setup consists of two or more hard disks and each has its own data path. It also includes a transaction log, which is usually divided into smaller, scaled-down files referred to as log extents. The log extents are typically 64MB in size raid technology. The Notes Machine supervises the transaction log.
Raid has been around for decades and is a key component of all datacenter systems. However, it’s not 100% reliable. If more than one hard drive fails, the entire system could become inoperable.
Despite its flaws however, raid is still employed by some organizations to protect their important data. RAID’s most recent versions, including erasure codes, are more effective at protecting data and offering superior performance. However, they are more than traditional raid solutions.
