9.0 Creating Software RAID 10 Devices

This section describes how to set up nested and complex RAID 10 devices. A RAID 10 device consists of nested RAID 1 (mirroring) and RAID 0 (striping) arrays. Nested RAIDs can either be set up as striped mirrors (RAID 1+0) or as mirrored stripes (RAID 0+1). A complex RAID 10 setup also combines mirrors and stripes and additional data security by supporting a higher data redundancy level.
