I'm sure if you tried a bit harder you could find out what it is. Try Google, or Wikipedia for example:
"RAID (a redundant array of inexpensive/independent disks) is a system which uses multiple hard drives to share or replicate data among the drives. Depending on the version chosen, the benefit of RAID is one or more of increased data integrity, fault-tolerance, throughput or capacity compared to single drives."

So basically you've got the same data on several drives to protect against corruption/failure etc. I think... I didn't really know anything about it either before I read that! And please try to use proper English in your posts...
