storage array

A group of hard drives or solid state drives (SSDs) built into a single unit. A storage array may be configured in a RAID architecture for redundancy or speed (see RAID). Also called a "drive array," a storage array generally refers to disks or SSDs; however, optical drives (CD, DVD, etc.) also come in multi-drive units (see optical disc library). See hard disk, SSD, JBOD, SAN, NAS and server farm.
