By | September 30, 2014

Storage solutions, professionals, etc… always heavily loaded with RAID configuration. But do you know this technology. I guess, yes. However, today I am going to ask some basic questions about RAID; below each question you will see 3 options + correct answer. At first glance it will looks quite boring or rather uninteresting but did you know this information before, ask yourself.

  • The correct answer is – 1) Redundant Array of Independent Disks

    Question 2/10 – What architecture does one opposes regularly RAID?

  • Flash
  • Red
  • SLED
  •  The correct answer is – 3) SLED

    Question 3/10 – True or false? At least two hard drives need for a RAID configuration.

  • True
  • False
  • The correct answer is – 1) True

    Question 4/10 – How is called RAID 0 mode?

  • Interweaving
  • Mirror
  • Fault tolerance
  • The correct answer is – 1) Interweaving

    Question 5/10 – What data is stored on the second hard drive with RAID 1?

  • Desktop files
  • Media files
  • Same as in the first

    Questions 7/10 – One of the configurations allows reading the data more efficient?

  • RAID 0
  • RAID 1
  • The correct answer is – 2) RAID 1

    Question 8/10 – Which of these RAID modes makes the most of the storage capacity of hard drives?

  • RAID 0

  • The correct answer is – Correct answer – 1) RAID 0

    Question 9/10 – True or false? RAID 10 is applicable from three combined hard drives.

  • True

  • The correct answer is – 2) False

    Question 10/10 – How do you call an unused hard disk under the RAID 5 mode?

  • Hot spare (spare disk)
  • The correct answer is – 3) Hot spare (spare disk)

    If you already know all the answers, then you can ask all these questions to your friend or colleagues to test how much basic knowledge they have about RAID technology. And if they fail to answer, then no need say how to make smug face in front of them 🙂
