The Adaptec AIC-7902 HostRAID is a proprietary technology that is implemented to reference RAID technology integration to provide an entry level support for the storage media strategy. This particular technology supported by the accompanying device driver is also often referred to as software RAID or intelligent RAID on chip. Presumably this is because the firmware is already embedded into the controller of the supported hardware component thereby eliminating the need for the activation of additional processors. The HostRAID card controllers are therefore by default enabled in the host computer system. Provided however that the correct device driver has been installed in order to correctly identify the presence of the supported hardware component. According to some computer experts the device driver for the Adaptec AIC-7902 HostRAID and similar hardware components can support both JBOD and RAID mode. The required driver files however would depend on the setting of the HostRAID component.
