RAID no brainer
Nov 16, 2009, 3:10 AM
I was wondering...
1. Would it be possible to build on board RAID onto a Std HDD?
2. If so, could it be possible to use this RAID to strip or mirror (not much point if the whole disk fails) platters inside a HDD. Surely this would be useful from a performance point of view.

Well, in the way you talk about it, such an arrangement already exists on the platters of contemporary hard disks. Data is spread across multiple platters.

Striping on partitions of a single disk you mean? Yeah it'll be one big performance gangbang; seeking for every 128KiB (stripesize). Try it and you'll be amazed how slow HDDs really are.
