QNAP RAID and Its different types

You might have heard about the QNAP RAID storing devices that will help you store data. There are various types of devices to help you store the information and numerous benefits of each. Here we are discussing the types of QNAP RAID systems, but before that, you should know about the various benefits of the RAID system. 

Raid systems have high storage capacity and multiple devices to choose from according to the user’s needs. If by accident, you ever lose the data in the device, it is easy to restore it as all you have to do is hire QNAP RAID data recovery services. 

The various types of QNAP RAID storing devices are:

Single RAID:

It includes just a single disk for storage which is used for minimal purposes as it does not provide better performance. Also, you will not be able to back up your data if you will use a single raid. Due to its inefficiency of work, QNAP came up with more devices.

JBOD (Just A Bunch Of Disks)

The disks are aligned in a linear manner which allows more capacity to be used by the user. The data is written on one disk until it is full, and then the other disk is used. If the disk fails, it will not be easy to get the data back, and its performance will not be satisfying if you are using it for major purposes. 


In RAID 0, disks are combines with stripping, which provides the fastest read/write speed. 


RAID 1 uses two disks to store data in order to provide protection to your information, so if one disk fails, at least you have an identical copy of the data stored in another. 


Restoring the data in RAID 5 is the easiest as it uses three or more disks to help in data loss. The damaged disk can be easily replaced, and the data can be stored in no time. The rad/write speed is also high as it will increase whenever a disk is added. 


This is the same as RAID 5, but instead of providing data protection against one disk, it provides protection against two if you ever lose the data. RAID 6 come with data protection and backup. 

RAID 10:

Disks in RAID 10 comes in even number usually four or more. This system comes with data failure protection paired to RAID 1 to be striped together with RAID 0, ensuring a high level of data security. 

RAID 50:

RIAD 50 uses six or more disks providing more storage capacity to the user. RAID 50 uses multiple small disks, which increases its storage capacity. The data failure protection is better than the other RAID systems. 

RAID 60:

RAID 60 system uses multiple RAID 6 groups that are stipped together to provide better protection from a data failure. RAID 60 is the best option to store data in businesses or other such large data which needs more storage capacity. Data can be restored with the help of professionals that will retrieve the data with their expertise and skills.
