Working with Stripe Sets

Stripe sets are similar to volume sets in that they use combined free space from 2 to 32 different disks into one volume you can use to store directories and files. The difference between stripe sets and volume sets is that stripe sets each must be located on a different disk, and the free space areas in stripe sets each must be about the same size.

In a volume set, the data is written to the first area on the first disk, then continued to the next disk, and the next, and so on, and then read in that same pattern. In a stripe set, the data is written across disks in a stripe to disk one, disk two, disk three, and then starts over to disk one again. The advantage of the stripe set is that input/output commands can be issued at the same time and throughput is increased; this is true for both SCSI and EIDE drives.
