SoftRAID is basically a disk utility program that allows you to connect multiple hard drives together to act as one big hard drive. SoftRAID also has awesome features for testing disks before use, drive monitoring, and email notification of drive failure.
SoftRAID allows you to create and manage disk arrays to increase performance and reliability. SoftRAID’s intuitive interface and powerful feature set make this utility a must-have for any Mac OS X Server admin, “Pro” user, photographer, digital-video editor, or desktop user who wants more reliable backup for his computer.
We are really excited about this release of SoftRAID. Eighteen months ago, we set out to create a new RAID Engine in software which would equal the performance and reliability of dedicated hardware RAID controllers, and we’ve more than accomplished that. SoftRAID is the premier disk driver for Mac OS X, replacing the basic functionality of Apple’s RAID driver, which has not been updated since 2009.
