Do you provide RAID Configurations with your UK Dedicated Servers?

We offer RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10 options with our dedicated servers. RAID 1 configurations needs 2 identical drives which helps in case of HDD failure. RAID 1 mirrors data on 2 identical drives which allows to swap drives in case of failure of one drive. RAID 5 configuration needs 3 identical drives. RAID 5 provides data striping at the byte level and also stripe error correction information. This results in excellent performance and good fault tolerance. RAID 10 provides high availability by combining features of RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 0 increases performance by striping volume data across multiple disk drives. RAID 1 provides disk mirroring which duplicates data between two disk drives. By combining the features of RAID 0 and RAID 1, RAID 10 provides a second optimization for fault tolerance.
