    Redundant Array of Independent Discs. Basically a method of storing the same data in different places on multiple hard discs, thus increasing fault-tolerance. There are at least nine types of RAID arrays that cover various levels of redundancy (protection) and speeds of data access. In most cases a RAID array appears as a single disc to the operating system of a computer.
