Best answer: Redundant array of independent/inexpensive disks (RAID) is a technology that allows for the storing of data across multiple hard drives. With NAS, the aim of RAID is to achieve data redundancy to reduce data loss and improve performance.
[h=3]What is RAID?[/h]RAID stands for redundant array of inexpensive/independent disks. It's a group of independent drives that operate as a fused single array.
