This menu is for creating a Software RAID0 stripe. RAID0 is used to concatenate 2 or more disks to one big volume. RAID0 don't provide any parity or data security. If one disk fail all data are lost. A RAID0 is used to improve read speed, cause all data is striped across the disks and will be written and read to/from both disk simultaneously.
The minimum requirement are two drives of same size.
This Software RAID module is based on GEOM Stripe.
