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.
