RAID 0 splits ('stripes') data evenly across two or more disks, without parity information, redundancy, or fault tolerance. It is normally used to increase performance.
RAID 0 requires at least 2 drives to implement
Characteristics & Advantages
RAID 0 provides great performance in read and write operations.
No overhead caused by parity control.
Performance can be enhanced further by using multiple controllers, ideally one per disk
The technology is easy to implement
No data redundancy.
Controller design is fairly complex
Very difficult and resource intensive to do as a "software" RAID
