Basic RAID Question

I was wondering, since RAIDZ is software raid then it won’t be necessary to enable Raid in the system Bios. I know it sounds stupid but would that be right? Thanks.


The “raid in system bios” … is from Intel chipset? Those are often called “fakeRAID”. The “bios” has some program to initialize such RAID array and practically all the work is done by software driver. The “fake” is from the fact that there is no “real” dedicated hardware as in “RAID controllers” (that have processor, RAM, etc). In Rocky it is the same software that allows us to use Linux software RAID and fakeRAID.

The RAIDZ is … a feature of ZFS? Part of that filesystem. All software, nothing from the motherboard.

Ok. Thanks. I wanted to make sure I was on the right track.
