Different RAID configurations are meant for different performance and storage needs. RAID 1 is used for redundancy and not performance. RAID 1 is the most independent RAID configuration allowing user for less attention on the system. RAID 1 is usually known as mirroring.
RAID 1 uses an even number of hard drives for the configuration to use the mirroring feature. Mirroring the drives on each other fulfills the purpose of stability. If your RAID 1 configuration has 2 drives in it then if one drive fails then the data is still intact on the other one.
Today when we talk about RAID configurations most people will assume that data loss on RAID configuration is impossible and the main concern about RAID configuration is that it shouldn’t be left unmonitored. People thinking about not losing the data will stop monitoring RAID system leading one to multiple drive failures. For example, if your system has a RAID 1 configuration with 2 hard drives and one of them fails and you have stopped monitoring the device. It will lead another drive to fail in coming times leading a big data loss crisis.
If your business cannot afford any downtime because of data loss and need stability and redundancy then RAID 1 is a perfect solution for you. If your RAID array has failed hard drive and not rebuilding then you should stop using the system right away. Shut down the device and note down the hard drive order.
