Software-RAID
With this upgrade, your server's disk space will be set up as software RAID 1. RAID 1 stands for the concept of "mirroring", which means that all data is stored on a second hard disk exactly like on the first . The advantage of RAID 1 is that data can be read faster and that, in case one hard disk fails, the system keeps working without loss of any data.

For RAID 1, one needs two identical hard disks. If you are ordering a server which has only one HD or two HDs which do not share the same capacity, you will need to order an additional HD with the same size as an upgrade. If you, for example, order a server with one 250 GB HD and would like to use this server with RAID 1, you will also need to order the upgrade for one additional 250 GB HD.
