Raiding

The act or practice of an investor or a group of investors buying a majority stake or a significant minority stake in a publicly-traded company such that it can dismiss current managers and replace them with handpicked successors. Raiding often occurs when the company's share price has recently fallen significantly. It is less commonly called venture arbitrage. See also: Hostile takeover, Greenmail.

Like the cache in monolithic RAID systems, the cache is battery backed.
The most sophisticated of the external cache systems also offer the ability to flexibly configure the cache line size to match the size of incoming data traffic and to control the rate at which data is flushed to attached RAID systems.
This management ability extends all the way to the individual disk drives and disk drive enclosure systems themselves, allowing administrators to collect detailed information on array performance that is normally not even available within a hardware RAID system (all hardware RAID controllers intentionally use proprietary methods for communicating with their drives, which makes it impossible for an outside host to query or even "see" an individual drive within the array-host-based RAIDs are obviously not restricted in this way).
Today's CPUs are literally thousands of times faster than those of 15-20 years ago; memory is cheap and abundant; new, fast communication protocols like Fibre Channel are maturing and by today's standards, the processing overhead incurred by RAID tasks is negligible.

A RAIDset is a specific RAID level, set to a number of drives in a RAID system.
