RAID 7

Definition - What does RAID 7 mean?

RAID 7 is a type of RAID level that includes a real-time embedded operating system and processor for enhanced data read/write or I/O operations and data caching capabilities.

It is a propriety RAID level owned by Storage Computer Corporation.

Techopedia explains RAID 7

RAID 7 primarily incorporates features from RAID level 3 and 4. RAID 7 has integrated cache and a purpose-built processor for managing the array that helps in achieving faster data read/write operations. It also has lesser dependency on parity disks due to the addition of controller hardware (cache and processor). Being a propriety technology, it requires a specialized controller to read/write data. RAID 7 provides triple parity.
