Some types of volume can provide data protection to prevent data loss caused by disk failure. 31 . a process of dividing data into blocks and spreading the data blocks across several hard drives. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space. This volume type eliminates the risk of volume failure and provides extra data protection. but without safety measures. A RAID 5+Spare volume requires at least four drives. you can choose between several volume types. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time. including volumes and iSCSI Targets. RAID 0 offers Striping. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. Combining multiple disks to build a volume. If you buy a Synology DiskStation with 2 or more bays. This configuration includes a backup option. What is Volume?
