German term or phrase: mitlaufend
"Mitlaufendes Ersatzlaufwerk"

I have this phrase within a list of measures taken to secure a particular computer configuration. The preceding items describe a RAID box which contains four physical drives, of which three are configured as active, providing two virtual drives at RAID Level 5. The fourth physical drive, clearly, is a hot spare.

Is it good to use a phrase with "concurrent" or something? Or maybe "hot standby drive"? Or what?
