Power on the computer and press the “Delete” key as soon as the initial boot screen displays to enter the system BIOS.

With the new array entry highlighted, press the “Enter” key to open the Array Detail window. The Spanning option enables all of the drives in the array to appear and perform as a single drive or volume. Since modern computers can write data to multiple drives in parallel or simultaneously, this can result in a considerable performance increase.

Mediqshield on which text editor you’re pasting into, you might have to add the italics to the site name. Load Balancing and Failover LBFO Two network connections work together to provide up to twice the Ethernet bandwidth for transferring large amounts of data from connected devices including Ethernet Switches.

References 4 Lascon Storage: However, NVIDIA’s RAID controllers typically add only a few dollars to the price of a motherboard and support multiple setup options that even tech novices can configure in a few minutes.

Click the “Start” button and select “Control Panel. Each chip includes 28 PCI Express lanes that can be mapped to 6 controllers in a number of different ways.

Highlight the drives to include in the array, and then press the “Right Arrow” key to move them from the Free Disks pane to the Array Disks side of the window. This eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency and performance, resulting in the industry’s fastest Gigabit Ethernet.

How to Configure NVIDIA Raid Controller

While mostly known for award-winning graphics and video cards, NVIDIA also produces controller and bridge chipsets for motherboards. This dramatically lowers the CPU utilization when processing network traffic at medixshield speeds and is fully compliant with Microsoft’s Chimney architecture. Like rald Striping option, spanning offers no protection against data loss if one of the drives fails but does enable you to create a very large storage space that can make storing files more convenient.

Press “C” to erase data on the drives in the array, then press “Y” when prompted to confirm your selection.

This functionality also provides network redundancy through fail-over capability. RAID controllers allow users to create multi-hard-drive arrays, permitting faster data transfers and redundancy to make storage more reliable.

About the Author Jeff Grundy has been writing computer-related articles and tutorials since Nfidia 08 November Since that time, Grundy has written many guides to using various applications that are published on numerous how-to and tutorial sites. Follow the prompts to create a new logical partition for the RAID array.

Skip to main content. Click “Yes” when prompted to confirm that you want raod format the drives in the array and erase any existing data. Otherwise, simply boot the computer into Windows if you created the RAID array for additional storage and not for use as the primary system partition.

If reinstalling Windows on the array, no further action is necessary as Windows setup will create partitions on the RAID array and format drives as needed during the installation. RAID MediaShield provides a simple point and click wizard-based interface for creating and managing multi-disk storage configurations. However, if one of the drives in the array fails, data on all of the drives in the array is lost.

This dramatically lowers the CPU utilization when processing network traffic at gigabit speeds. Use the RAID array to store files just as you would a single hard drive installed in your nvidai.

The computer restarts automatically. Wait for the Disk Management utility to format the drives and prepare them for mvidia in Windows. The Mirroring option copies data from the primary disk to a second one to create identical or “mirrored” copy and backup. Native command queuing provides higher disk performance in a multi-threaded environment by performing out-of-order disk accesses.
