disk striping

   The technique of combining a set of disk partitions located on different hard disks into a single volume, creating a virtual "stripe" across the partitions that the operating system recognizes as a single drive. Disk striping can occur at the bit level or at the sector level and allows multiple concurrent disk accesses that can improve performance considerably.
