The Standard volume (also known as Synology Hybrid RAID) can optimize the volume size when combining hard drives with different sizes. This configuration includes a backup option. If you buy a Synology DiskStation with 2 or more bays. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of one disk for later data recovery. you can choose between several volume types. See "Appendix A: Synology DiskStation Specifications" on Page 147 for more information. in which data integrity is (even number) protected when one of the two hard drives fails. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. This volume type eliminates the risk of volume failure and provides extra data protection. including volumes and iSCSI Targets. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. ≧4 --------1 Volume types except for Basic are supported on specific models only. When creating a Basic volume. What is Volume? A volume is the combination of several hard drives into one storage space for centralized management. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space. data integrity is protected when one of the hard drives fails. If the volume is composed of two or more hard drives. you can select only one hard drive at a 1 x (HDD size) time. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of two disks for later data recovery. and check hard drive's status. access external disks with Synology DiskStation Manager. you need to set up storage spaces first. a process of dividing data into blocks and spreading the data blocks across several hard drives. 2 "N" represents the total number of hard drives within the volume. Synology DiskStation Supported Volume Types Volume Type Data Protection HDD # Description Basic No 1 A Basic volume must be created with one hard drive as an independent unit. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time. RAID 10 combines two hard drives into a group. Some types of volume can provide data protection to prevent data loss caused by disk failure. but without safety measures. A RAID 5+Spare volume requires at least four drives.
