RAID technology is a great feature for Lotus Notes. It protects information in the event of a failure of the hard drive. It blends several hard disk drives into a single file system and utilizes fail-tolerance when there is a single drive failing. It’s particularly useful for businesses that have multiple hard drives and want to ensure that their data is always accessible.
A typical raid setup consists of three or two hard disks. Each disk has its own data path. It also has a transaction record, which is usually divided into smaller files, referred to as log extents. The log extents are typically 64MB in size. The Notes Machine supervises the transaction log.
Raid has been around for a long time and is a vital component of all datacenter systems. It’s not foolproof. If more than one hard drive fails, the whole filesystem may become unusable.
Despite its shortcomings RAID is still utilized by some organizations to safeguard their important data. The most recent versions of RAID including erasure codes, are more effective than ever at protecting data from damage and offer better performance. However, they cost more than traditional raid solutions.
