It sometimes does. Striping is the idea of spreading the data across disks.
In RAID5 there is duplication for redundancy, in RAID0 the data is spread but
not redundantly in order to gain speed.

I'm not sure how "stripe" came to be used as the word for this. I assume the
English analogy is with coloured stripes (disk 0 colur, disk 1 , disk 0, disk 1
colour etc)

Out of context it makes limited sense to an English speaker 8)
