Disks|Software RAID|RAID0

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.

For optimal performance it is suggested to use identical hard drives.

This mean:

  • same Vendor
  • same Type
  • same size

This Software RAID module is based on GEOM Stripe.

For more Information see:

FreeBSD Manualpage:

  • geom - universal control utility for GEOM classes
  • gstripe - control utility for striped devices
