          They are of storage terms only.


          raw is the amount of actual HDD disk space like for eg:  If you have two hard disks of 100 GB each then raw capacity is 200 GB

          A logical unit number (LUN) is a unique identifier used to designate individual or collections of hard disk devices for address by a protocol associated with a SCSI, iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC) or similar interface.

          LUNs are central to the management of block storage arrays shared over a storage area network (SAN)
