Implementing RAID on Windows 2000 Servers
RAID level 0 is disk striping. With disk striping, two or more volumeseach on a separate driveare configured as a stripe set. Data written to the stripe set is broken into blocks that are called stripes. These stripes are written sequentially to all drives in the stripe set. You can place volumes for a stripe set on up to 32 drives, but in most circumstances sets with two to five volumes offer the best performance improvements over non-RAID volumes because data from multiple drives is simultaneously accessed. Beyond this, the performance improvement decreases significantly.
