The topic of RAID has become a common one in the computer industry of late. The progression of IDE RAID as a viable option for home power users has really brought it into the limelight. Not only does it kill bugs dead, but RAID can also really improve overall disk performance and/or increase your level of fault tolerance. The guys over at Ars Technica have posted an article entitled "The skinny on RAID".
There are varying types of configurations for RAID, and each is assigned a different notation based on the cleverly conceived "RAID X" scheme (you know it sounds cool, even if it's not the most useful designation scheme).
It's a good read, you can check it out here.
