disk redundancy

Writing to two or more disks at the same time. Having the same data stored on separate disks enables the data to be recovered in the event of a disk failure without resorting to expensive data recovery techniques. RAID 1 and RAID 5 are common approaches to disk redundancy. See RAID, data redundancy and data recovery.
