Intel RAID Controllers: Best Practices White Paper
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) technology has been commonly implemented in server usage models as an option to provide additional data protection. RAID solutions are now also found in other computer environments such as desktops, workstations, and external storage devices which support a large number of hard drives. Intel is committed to providing customers with stable, high-performance, and high-reliability RAID products. This white paper is intended to describe the best practices that should be used when deploying Intel Server RAID solutions. The focus of this paper is to review the implementation, configuration, and troubleshooting of RAID solutions for Intel server products.
