Adding a Drive to an Intel Matrix RAID 5

Intel Matrix Storage Technology is a RAID controller used to create RAID arrays with multiple hard drives. A RAID array is a series of hard drives connected to a RAID adapter rather than directly to the motherboard interface. The RAID controller presents the various hard drives as a volume, and uses various methods to improve data protection and data access speed. RAID 5 spreads data across several different disks with a method of storage called striping. This speeds up data access. Data protection is achieved through parity, which provides a segmentation index that can be recreated if a drive in the set fails. Things You’ll Need
