RAID in very basic terms, would be like multiple copies of your data split across multiple internal drives. This can happen in different ways (ex. -stripping, redundant drives, ect.).

This product is more about data backup/file mirroring.

LIM (locally integrated menu) was set as the default menu type in Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet back in February but this didn't last for long.

With just 3 days before the Ubuntu 15.04 release, Unity was updated with only one change: the default out of the box menu was set back to global menu: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/7.3.2+15.04.20150420-0ubuntu1
