What RAID configuration should you use?

While many installers are learning the IP camera/video server side of things, fewer have a useful grasp of storage server considerations.  Go to CMP's info4security.com website to read a helpful article on improving system performance, written by Milestone Solution Partner Amplicon.  RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent (or Inexpensive) Disks, a category of disk drives that employ two or more drives in combination for fault tolerance and improved overall performance, allowing you to store the same data redundantly (in multiple paces) in a balanced way.
