Need help with RAID.

Hi Gurus,

Can any one explain me the difference between hardware RAID and s/w RAID.


Thanks in Advance.
# 2  
Hardware RAID Hardware is some sort of a disk controller to which you can cable up the disk drives. Software RAID is a set of one or more kernel modules coupled together with management utilities that implement RAID in software and require no additional hardware.

If you need more information, I suggest you do an Internet search on "hardware software RAID".
