What is RAID?

  • RAID - “Redundant Array of Independent Disks”​
  • Glyph Blackbox PRO RAID supported modes:​

RAID-0 "Striped"

  • Best for video capture, A/V Streaming​
  • Reads and writes data across both drives simultaneously ​
  • Increased performance​
  • Larger achieved capacity​
  • No fault tolerance or redundancy

Raid-1 "Mirrored"

  • Best for archiving and backup​
  • Data needs to be written to both drives simultaneously ​
  • Two complete copies of all data at all times​
  • Can survive a single drive failure​
  • Increased read speed​

Hardware vs Software RAID in Dual Drive Environments

​Hardware - The RAID is managed by a dedicated onboard controller.​

  • Faster​
  • More reliable​
  • Easier + faster to rebuild after drive failure​
  • Doesn’t rely on host computer resources​
  • Won’t negatively impact host computer performance​
  • Easier to configure​


  • Typically more expensive (not always)

Software - The RAID is managed by software on the host machine.​

  • Typically less expensive (not always)​


  • Slower​
  • Less reliable​
  • Relies on host computer resources​
  • Can negatively impact host computer performance​
  • Slower to rebuild after drive failure
