RAID 0: The shitty parent of RAID configurations

RAID 0 generally creates the fastest storage, plus gives you the most usable space out of your RAID.  With video editing nothing is as important as performance and capacity right?


Well… let's not be too crazy.


RAID 0 is like a parent that's trying to be their kids friend.  Kids need boundaries.


RAID 0 gives you the performance and capacity, but it ignores the fact that if any of your drives fail, you lose all of your data.


So don't be fooled by RAID 0's good looks and great record collection.  RAID 0 is in fact, the shitty parent of RAID configurations.
