In such a file system it is possible to operate on a file by simultaneously utilizing many (or all) of the disks, since the file system is organized to take advantage of the multiplicity of equipment, rather than limiting access to a single disk for each file, as in most existing file systems. The main advantages of the HFS are a speed-up in data retrieval related to the number of disks, and improved availability by allowing access to parts of a file even when other parts of that file are not accessible."
