Yes, it is very scary to think about RAID failure. It becomes more alarming when you have to work on something important for your organization. Unfortunately, the breakdown of RAID servers seems to be a common problem these days. That is why here in this article, we shall be discussing how to improve server performance. […]

Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is the configuration of multiple hard drives into logical units to improve the performance of the RAID server and the redundancy of RAID data. This is one of the main reasons RAID storage systems are commonly used in business organizations to store data.

RAID is not vulnerable that can break down easily. However, some reasons can slow down the performance of the server. There are multiple causes of RAID server failure. Here is the list of important things to consider to prevent:

1. Logical failure

Failure of RAID configuration may lead to failure of RAID server. Further it can cause
RAID data failure.
Accidental corruption of files and folders.
Frequent virus and malware attacks.
Sometimes RAID servers fail due to damage to one or multiple hard drives.

2. Human error

Accidental deletion of files and folders.
Improper reformatting of RAID.
Improper placement of drives into RAID

3. Physical failure

Failure of RAID controller
Crashing of RAID server.
Bad sectors.
Failure of motherboard
RAM and multiple hard drives failures
