Strip Size & Stripe Size

Recently Completed Storage Certification, I was confused about one concept that I want to share with all of you.

Strip Size also called as Stripe Depth —> take a careful look & you will understand why this is confusing  —>e makes it confusing.

Strip Size or Stripe depth is the number of blocks in a strip & is the max amount of data that can be written to or read from a single HDD in

the SET before the next HDD is accessed, assuming that accessed data starts at the beginning of the strip.

Stripe size is a multiple of strip size by the number of HDDs in the RAID set.

Stripe width refers to the number of data strips in a stripe.
