Understanding RAID

I wrote this white paper to try and turn RAID mumbo-jumbo into plain English. It goes on to explain how Bosch's global storage partner, NetApp, does 'RAID 5' and 'RAID 6'. It's important to understand the differences, especially with RAID 6 (RAID DP in NetApp terminology) because without it you will start losing video as drives sizes continue to get bigger. Maybe RAID 5 is perfect for your needs, but it's always helpful to know what you're not getting by not upgrading one more level, especially when the disk array itself is the same cost.
