Yes, you must have multiple disks for RAID - Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks.

There are numerous posts discussing the benefits of RAID and the various configurations (RAID 0, 5, 6, 10). The Redundancy and performance are the benefits, but you sacrifice disk space to the parity information or the striping, based on which configuration.
