​​What does "Avoid RAID" mean in a HealthCheck for Azure assessment report?

Answer:

 

By default, HealthCheck for Azure recommends configuring storage using RAID (redundant array of independent disks) because it delivers enhanced performance at reduced cost. However, Microsoft Azure Site Recovery (ASR) does not support RAID, so when you run an assessment for migrations that will use ASR to migrate to Azure, the assessment alerts you with the warning to "Avoid RAID."

Following the migration, you can modify workload mapping to optimize the Azure storage.
