How does software implementation of RAID work on Windows 2000?

How does software implementation of RAID work on Windows 2000? Could you just explain how to implement that and the available software in the market?
Windows 2000 performs software implementation of RAID by managing the read and writes to the devices involved in a contrasted RAID array. The problem with software based RAID is that it affects system performance significantly. Hardware RAID performs all of the RAID processing on the controller card and often offers additional benefits such as auto-failover and hot-swappable drives. There are plenty of details on how to configure software based RAID in the online help and support area of Windows 2000.
