10 Questions about RAID Technology

September 30, 2014 / FAQs

Storage solutions, professionals, etc… always heavily loaded with RAID configuration. But do you know this technology? I guess, yes. However, today I am going to ask some basic questions about RAID; below each question, you will see 3 options + correct answer.

At first glance it will look quite boring or rather uninteresting but did you know this information before, ask yourself.

  • Redundant Array of Independent Disks
  • Redundant Association of Inexpensive Disks
  • Asynchronous Data record of Informatics

The correct answer is – 1) Redundant Array of Independent Disks

Question 2/10 – What architecture does one opposes regularly RAID?

  • Flash
  • Red
  • SLED

 The correct answer is – 3) SLED

Question 3/10 – True or false? At least two hard drives need for a RAID configuration.

  • True
  • False

The correct answer is – 1) True

Question 4/10 – How is called RAID 0 mode?

  • Interweaving
  • Mirror
  • Fault tolerance

The correct answer is – 1) Interweaving

Question 5/10 – What data is stored on the second hard drive with RAID 1?

  • Desktop files
  • Media files
  • Same as in the first

The correct answer is – 3) same as in the first.

Question 6/10 – True or false? The RAID 0 does not improve safety compared to conventional hard disks.

  • True
  • False

The correct answer is – 1) True

Questions 7/10 – Which of the configurations allows reading the data more efficient?

  • RAID 0
  • RAID 1

The correct answer is – 2) RAID 1

Question 8/10 – Which of these RAID modes makes the most of the storage capacity of hard drives?

  • RAID 0
  • RAID 1
  • RAID 5

The correct answer is – Correct answer – 1) RAID 0

Question 9/10 – True or false? RAID 10 is applicable to three combined hard drives.

  • True
  • False

The correct answer is – 2) False

Question 10/10 – How do you call an unused hard disk under the RAID 5 mode?

  • Disk ghost (ghost disk)
  • Rescue Disk (rescue disk)
  • Hot spare (spare disk)

The correct answer is – 3) Hot spare (spare disk)

If you already know all the answers, then you can ask all these questions to your friend or colleagues to test how much basic knowledge they have about RAID technology. And if they fail to answer, then no need to say how to make smug face in front of them 🙂
