RAID is Backups
RAID: the world's leading backup solution.
What is RAID?
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Indepedent (or Inexpensive) Disks/Drives, depending on who you ask. Basically, you throw some disks together, and boom, your data is safe.
Why should I use RAID backups?
The name says it all! Redundant data can't possibly be lost or corrupted when spread across multiple disks, right? Combined with the performance advantages of multiple spinning heads, RAID offers a high performance lightweight backup solution, unparalleled in modern computing.
Someone told me RAID isn't a backup solution...
In all walks of professional computing, there are what we in the industry refer to as 'haters.' These neckbeard know-it-alls are the same people who advocate programming in Ruby and use phrases like 'close to the metal.' Don't let these IT hipsters sway you, just because you don't need to compile node.js and four different GitHub projects just to have functioning, safe, fool proof backup service.
