From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  data striping
  disk striping
  stripe set
      Segmentation of logically sequential data, such as
     a single file, so that segments can be written to multiple
     physical devices (usually disk drives) in a round-robin
     fashion.  This technique is useful if the processor is capable
     of reading or writing data faster than a single disk can
     supply or accept it.  While data is being transferred from the
     first disk, the second disk can locate the next segment.
     Data striping is used in some modern databases, such as
     Sybase, and in certain RAID devices under hardware
     control, such as IBM's RAMAC array subsystem (9304/9395).
     Data striping is different from, and may be used in
     conjunction with, mirroring.
