Spanned and Striped Volumes tutorials

Spanned Volume

Description: Spanning

  • Spanned Volume is a dynamic volume that content space from Two disk upto 32 disk.

  • It writes data on one disk till it is full then it writes to other disk.

  • It gathers free space from many disks and allocates one Volume name.

  • You can create a spanned volume either by extending a simple volume to unallocated space from second disk & multiple disks.

  • There is no fault Tolerance.

  • You can shrink a spanned volume without losing data. In such a case number of disks involved may decrease.

  • You can extend a spanned volume maximum upto 32 disk, include unallocated areas from all disk and this way you can extend Capacity of volume.

  • Biggest Drawback:- There is No Fault Tolerance for Spanned Volumes . Remember that from combine group of any disk, if any disk fail, All Data on Whole Volume could be lost.

  • Personally I will never recommend implementation of Spanned Volume in live production, without considering Proper data backup and disaster recovery plan.

 

Striped Volume - RAID 0

Description: raid0

  • Also known as RAID 0 or Strip set without Parity.

  • A striped volume combines unallocated area from multiple hard disks from 2 to 32 into one volume.

  • Data is written alternately on each disk. So first block is written on 1st disk, 2nd on 2nd disk, 3rd block on 1st disk and 4th on 2nd disk.

  • It provides improved and faster performance for Reading and Writing, by distributing I/O across all disks configured as part of one set.

  • There is no Fault Tolerance.

  • You can delete a striped volume, but you canít Shrink or Extend volume.

  • Biggest Drawback:- There is No Fault Tolerance for Striped Volumes . Remember that from combine group of any disk, if any disk fail, All Data on Whole Volume will be lost.

  • Striped volume could be used for PAGEFILE.SYS, it gives improved performance. While implementation of Striped volume in live production for data, consider your plan well in advance for proper data backup and disaster recovery.

  • Other form of RAID include, RAID - 1 (Mirror), RAID 5 (Strip Set with Parity), RAID 10 (Mirror with Strip Set) and JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) and so on. Discussing above RAID is out of the scope for this course, letís concentrate now, how we could create Spanned and Strip set.

Exercise : Demonstrate Creating Spanned Disk using Diskpart

  1. On the Start Screen, type c, and in the Apps search screen, click Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, type Diskpart, and then press Enter.

  3. At the DISKPART> prompt, type list volume and then press Enter.

  4. Take note of the Volume number associated with Simple2.

  5. At the DISKPART> prompt, type select volume <n> and then press Enter. (Where <n> is the number noted in step 5)

  6. At the DISKPART> prompt, type shrink desired=50 and then press Enter.

  7. When the shrink command has completed, at the DISKPART> prompt, type list volume, and then press Enter.

  8. Compare the reported size of the Simple2 volume as reported now with the value from the previous list volume command.

  9. Close the command prompt.
