Best answer

In a parallel access array, all member disks participate in the execution of every I/O request. Typically, the spindles of the individual drives are synchronized so that each disk head is in the same position on each disk at any given time. In an independent access array, each member disk operates independently, so that separate I/O requests can be satisfied in parallel.
