with software-based RAID technology. HP RAID software uses RAID technology
to manage groups of disk drives as arrays. HP RAID software supports
Striping (RAID Level 0), Striping with Parity (RAID Level 5), and
Because HP RAID software is a host-based capability, it can provide RAID capabilities
across multiple controllers, even across multiple hosts.

provides for enhanced data availability. Partitioning provides
a way to let you subdivide arrays into multiple virtual disks for
easier storage management.
HP RAID software Striping can be used with OpenVMS Volume Shadowing to provide RAID 0+1
