The Thumb Drive RAID Experiment

The team at Bigbruin got to thinking one day and decided to run a RAID experiment using USB thumbdrives.  This is more of a proof-of-concept article as the need for RAIDed USB drives are minimal.  Nonetheless, it's refreshing to see someone think outside the box from time to time, and this experiment proved to be an interesting read in the least.

The idea of a thumb drive RAID array might not be practical for every day needs, but it is a novel idea that could be of benefit to some people. For one, owners of mini-ITX systems that boot from a flash drive might be interested in the sizable speed burst a RAID 0 array could provide... In the end, results were achieved that showed great promise for thumb drive RAID arrays.
