RAID level-6

A RAID level that uses data striping and block interweaving to distribute data across four or more physical drives. It is similar to RAID level-5 but with two sets of parity instead of one. The second set of parity information improves fault tolerance. RAID level-6 can handle two simultaneous drive failures, where other single RAID levels can handle, at most, only one.
