*RAID 1 selection mirrors blocks across two drives and then creates a striped set across multiple drive pairs. This is commonly referred to as RAID 1+0.

1TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes

1TiB = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes

SFF = small form factor, LFF = large form factor

SCM = storage class memory, SAS = serial attached SCSI, NVMe = non-volatile memory express, SSD = solid state drive, FMD = flash module drive, HDD = hard disk drive, FC = Fibre Channel, iSCSI = internet small computer systems interface
