disk array

Two or more disk drives built into a stand-alone unit, typically using some RAID configuration (see RAID). Also called a "drive array" or "storage array," it generally refers to magnetic disks or solid state disks; however, optical drives (CD, DVD, etc.) also come in multi-drive units (see optical disc library). See SAN, NAS and server farm.
