RAID IllustrationStriped (RAID 0) Explained
click to enlarge

Speed is key in a RAID 0 "Stripe" array. In a RAID 0 "Stripe" array, blocks of data alternate writing to two or more drives. This spreads out the workload to provide write and read speed increases over a single drive. This also combines the drive together to form one large volume, for example two 500GB drives would form a 1TB volume in a RAID 0 array.
RAID IllustrationMirrored RAID 1 Explained
click to enlarge

Data safety is the main objective in a RAID 1 "Mirror" array. In a RAID 1 "Mirror" array, data bits are written simultaneously to two identical drives. This is done for redundancy, because it provides a duplicate "mirror" copy of your data on a second drive. Two 500GB drives would form 500GB of storage space and if one drive in the array has trouble, your data is still intact and accessible on the second drive.
