Automated Storage Manager (ASM) on x1600 storageworks

hi,

 

i need help to understand one thing:

 

1. after purchase a x1600 storage, i enter ACU (array configuration utility) and select raid 60 as my raid level. Done..

 

2. then when i use ASM software, try to create a LUN it ask again what raid level i want and things such as how many disks to be used, and stripe size.

 

what does this mean? i can even choose raid-5 or any raid level at this stage but then in ACU it is stated raid 60.

 

can anyone help me to understand this?

 

thanks
