striped volume RAID-0

A volume that stores data in stripes on two or more physical disks. Data in a striped volume is allocated alternately and evenly (in stripes) to the disks of the striped volume. Striped volumes can be created only on dynamic disks. Striped volumes by themselves are not fault tolerant; however, they can be mirrored to be made fault tolerant. They also can be extended.
