A RAID - Redundant Array of Independent (or Inexpensive, depending who one ask) Disks - is a method for providing faster throughput than single drives. It can also be used for providing access to larger pools of storage than single drives, as a result the RAID appears as one logical drive to the computer. The third advantage of using a RAID is that it can be set up with some degree of redundancy. Redundancy means that one of the drives can fail, without losing any data. Redundancy is available in RAID 1, 3, 5 and 6. There is a detailed explanation of RAID at Wikipedia for those who want to get further into the technicalities.
