Can I use RAID on my Swift/SwiftStack cluster?

Albert Chen -

OpenStack Swift is designed for high durability and availability by the eventually consistency processes in the software layer. No RAID is needed. The RAID for Swift disks won't have you any benefits. 

If your HW has only Raid controller on it, you should configure a RAID0 group of each disk.
