Yes. It may seem like the RAID type numbers are random, but other RAID types exist. We don't discuss them above, nor do you readily find devices that support them, because generally they've either been replaced by the RAID types you find explained here, or fit very specific, niche uses. You may also see ones with an "E" added or other letters; these may represent variations of existing types that are more complex and/or proprietary. If you want to learn more about these, we recommend that you refer to product information on a device that supports them.
Steadfast has been providing dedicated servers with RAID configurations for at least a decade, and while RAID is a widely used technology, how it is implemented has changed a great deal with the advent of Solid State Drives (SSDs). We have been asked by many customers about RAID, what it is, how it affects them, and how they can get the best reliability and performance out of it while keeping an eye on their bottom line. So, I figured I'd take a look at the blog posts we have made in the past and release an updated version to include modern advances. If you still have further questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
I need to setup a NAS box for a company doing surveying with drones that will be producing abouta 200 GB file, per week, for about 9 months. So about 7TB of data in that time frame. They would like fast right speed to the NAS and will be pulling the files to edit on workstations. There will be 5 people connected to the server at a time, with 1 person at a time accessing a file.
Hi,Can you please explain the difference between Raid 16 and raid 61? What are the Possible applications of these combinations? Advantages and disadvantages.Please help..Thanks in advance.
I am setting up a home server/backup/storage of my home files, photos, movies, etc.. have a 8 bay dell Poweredge. I will be using 8x8tb sas hdd. Basically just looking for redundancy and not to worry about losing my files, pictures, movies. What RAID would be best? Thanks.
This is a nice write up, but missing some basic logic. The only disadvantage of RAID 10 is cost as you get about 45% of total raw space for usable space. Other than that, it has the best performance and redundancy of all RAID levels.
Hi,I have 5*6TB (5.5 actually), 5*4TB, 2*1TB, and 1*2TB with three servers of 6 hard drive slots.My data can be split two parts: raw data (like compressed video and document files) and in-process data (like the data extracted from the compressed ones and need to be processed further).for the first ones the data security is very high and for the latter the performancewhat raid setup would you suggest?thanks in advance for any suggestions
Hi, I am setting up a large array for a surveillance system.I have spoken to some people about the size of hard drives available. Is it better to use say: 12 x 12TB Drives in Raid6 array or 24 x 6TB drives?
Daniel Smith 4 drives of 3 Tb in raid 10 is 6 TB because the you combine 2 drives as raid 0 and the other 2 are used a mirrorThose who work with large amounts of data should choose between raid 10 or 6In my view today raid 5 is no longer a good solution because of bitrot .. sadly raid 6 will not last much longer it will loose in around 2019-2020 its value because of the everlasting growth in the sizes we use. However the most secure is in my view raid 6 till the grow beyond the max of raid 6 is reached and it looses its ability to proper restore the files.
Thanks for beautifully explaining the types of RAID. I am a tech guy and was using RAID 5. Somehow, I had lost the data from it. So, I asked the solution from my colleague and he advised me to use Stellar Phoenix raid recovery software. I had purchased this software from -raid-recovery.php. This works great for me. Thanks!
One question.If we take RAID 5, what is pairity checksum features.If we have 4 disk and configured raid 5..It will do stripping means fast data flow as data being distributed but what is pairity for ?2. if data can be recovered of failed disk 1 then why not to all 3 disks.3. why is it required to have RAID 6 for double pairity ?
thanks for reply.i just wanted to know, parity is a program or algorithm and does it takes space in disk too? also in raid 0 concept do we get to use both disk space for ex 1tb each we are using for raid 0.
Hi, I have read your explanations about RAID configuration and it is very much informative with pictures. I have a doubt that in RAID 5 or in RAID 6, how much space will al1ocate for a parity drive if it is a 1TB drive.Another doubt I have that, even though it is not relating to this topic, what is mean by SATA3 6GB/s interface? Is it a 6GB/s transfer speed or any other? My HDD occupied with the same SATA3 interface and I have been getting not more than 50MB/s while copied a file from one logical drive to another since the date of I assembled the PC.
you can achieve raid10 with 2 disks but it makes no sense to do that, this would slow your drive down which negates the purpose of striping in the first place, you will have 2 read/write operations on same disk making your drive work harder than it has to which would cause failure sooner.
You can start a raid by purchasing a Special Microchip from the Mysterious Scientist for either 100,000 or exchanging any physical fruit. Standing inside of the dark blue tube (Second Sea) or on top of the yellow platform (Third Sea), then pressing the button with an empty hand while the chip is in the player's inventory.
Another type of raids are Advanced raids, which can be started by purchasing a chip from the Mysterious Scientist for either 1,000 or any physical fruit over 1,000,000, though it is advised to use Quake as it's the most common Legendary fruit. Currently, there are only two Advanced raids; Bird: Phoenix and Dough as of Update 17.3. Before an Advanced Raid Chip is purchasable from the Mysterious Scientist, the player must first meet certain requirements and/or complete a certain quest for each fruit. You can find info on the Advanced Raids obtainment below.
Start a Dough King raid by getting a God's Chalice and 10x Conjured Cocoa to craft a Cake Chalice. If you can't manage to do this, you may get help from a friend or find a server willing to summon the Dough King.
Tap is a skill, which is unlocked upon reaching 0 Pheonix mastery + buying for 4000 and has the user dashes forward in the direction of the cursor, slightly stunning the enemies and creating an explosion after the dash. This move deal moderate damage at about 2000, but have the fastest cooldown in the game of 3 seconds.
A nice way to finish a raid fast is by first jumping up high when the raid starts then, hold your strongest move and then land it on the npcs, just repeat this technique for raid NPCs. If its a boss then first try to stun the boss (also use ken haki) then just spam EVERY move you have on the boss and when the stun time is over just dodge all of the attacks until you can stun the boss again. If its Bella then i recommend to use ken haki but Bella is wave 10 boss which is not very hard to defeat. I have done this countless amounts of times carrying many noobs and getting a lot of gems and beli.
The last boss is Captain String. He has a massive amount of hp, around the same as the Oars raid boss. He has two attacks, a string laser with medium range, that does around 4,000 damage. His second is a close range attack which is a multicolored string slash that also does around 2,000 damage. He shoots his string laser every 4 seconds, and shows the read indicator before he attacks. Since he is normal sized, you can trap him. He's the most time consuming to defeat out of the 6 bosses. A perfect strat is to go behind the fences and spam your attacks while dodging his String laser (note the fences cannot trap npc or player anymore), an alternative strategy is to keep him at a distance where your attacks can hit and keep moving to dodge his string laser, if a teammate died try to lure the captain string near the location he/she died, he would shoot the ghost instead of you. Its also recommended to kill all other enemies in the wave before starting him because the other enemies (especially Bella) can keep making you lose your Ken and you may die to Cap String.
After defeating this boss you will get 1 Million Beli and 5 Gems (Not that you get from defeating him directly also you might not get reward if something else spawned in wave 30 is still alive.) (The reward is from the raid finishing not him).

Each week there will be two raids that players can complete to score Pinnacle gear. There will be the most recently release raid (such as Vow of the Disciple from The Witch Queen) and the weekly featured raid. Check out our featured dungeon schedule for information on the other endgame activity rotation.
Keep this featured raid schedule bookmarked so you can come back and see which raid is active each week in Destiny 2. Remember to attempt the challenges for some bonus gear. Swing by the Shacknews Destiny 2 Guide for more help with raids and other endgame content.
Raids are the core of the endgame, posing the greatest challenges and offering the strongest loot. Unlike dungeons or trials, current-tier raids have limitations on how much loot players can receive per week. These limitations are removed once the raid is old, to make it easier to catch up. Raids are almost always optional content (the only exception being the first Alliance Raid series). 2b1af7f3a8
