Exercise 1 - Configure Software RAID

Redundant Array of Independent Disks also known as Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) is a disk storage technology where data is saved in multiple hard disks to provide high availability of mission-critical applications, protect business data in the event of a disk failure on the server. RAID enhances data redundancy as the failure of one disk volume does not necessarily mean complete data loss because data can be recovered from the other disk volumes in the RAID array.

RAID is implemented either as hardware-based, or software-based RAID. Software-based RAID provide cost-effective and reliable storage without the use of expensive RAID adapters, RAID arrays, and SAN switch fabric.

The disk volumes that will be used with RAID can either be local or external storage. Windows Server 2016 supports software-based RAID.
