RAID technology is a fantastic feature for Lotus Notes. It safeguards data in the event of a failure of the hard drive. It blends multiple hard disk drives into a single file system and employs fail-tolerance to rebuild facts in the event that a single drive fails. It’s particularly useful for businesses which have multiple hard drives and need to ensure their information is always available.

A typical setup for raids consists of two or more hard disks, and each disk has its own data path. The transaction log can also be divided into smaller files, referred to as log extents. The log extents are typically 64MB in size. The transaction log is monitored by the Notes Machine.

Raid is a very popular type of storage that’s been in use for a long time, and is an integral part of many datacenter systems. But it’s not completely reliable. The entire file system could be rendered unusable if there’s more than one drive fails.

Despite its flaws however, raid is still employed by some companies to safeguard their critical data. The latest versions of RAID features, like erasure coding, are more effective than ever at protecting data from loss and provide more performance. They are more expensive than traditional solutions.
