“Just A Bunch Of Disks”
JBOD is used to concatenate different disks of different sizes into one big volume, while a RAID0 use drives of the same size. JBODs don't provide any redundancy. If one drive fails all data are lost. The creation of a JBOD is quite simple. All you have to do is select the drives you want to use. See illustrations below.
- Setting a name for the JBOD
- Selecting the drives for the JBOD. ( 160GB + 400GB + 250GB)
Create and Intialize …
And after pressing “Apply” we have an about 810GB JBOD which assumes as one big drive.
Like any other RAID you can now Format and Mount.
