RAID: High-Performance, Reliable Secondary Storage Peter Chen, Edward Lee, Garth Gibson, Randy Katz and David Patterson, ACM Computing Surveys, Vol 26, No. Disk arrays, which organize multiple, independent disks into a large, high-performance logical disk, were a natural solution to dealing with constraints on performance and reliability of single disk drives. The term "RAID" was invented by David Patterson, Garth A. Gibson, and Randy Katz at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987.
