Byte Striping: A technique for speeding up the retrieval of data stored on an ARRAY of hard disks. The data stream is divided up into, say, 4-byte portions, and the bytes from each such portion are written to four different drives: this effectively quadruples the data rate since the four drives can be written to or read from simultaneously. Byte striping is covered by the RAID4 and 5 specifications, and driver software to accomplish it is built into, for example, WINDOWS NT and WINDOWS 2000.
