More about redundancy
  1. Redundancy is like having "run-flat" tires on a car. If one tire gets a flat you can still drive your car for another 50 miles or so; far enough to get home or to a repair shop.

    Having a RAID array (except for RAID-0) provides redundancy.
    If a drive fails you can continue functioning (with reduced performance) until you get the faulty drive replaced.
  2. Thank you so much. Sometimes having it explained in a different way really helps. Now everything is falling into place
