If result no RAID, is there any possible that we can configure RAID?

Questions to ask yourself

 

1. do you know the difference between hardware raid and software raid?

2. how many drives in the server?  No raid with 1 drive

3. does the server have a raid card?  You would see this on boot up.  You would also have the opportunity to logon to the raid controller bios during bootup which would tell you what raid level is configured

4. what does Disk Management say in Computer management?

"Please provide me the link where could i learn about this."

Google difference between hardware raid and software raid

Google raid levels

to learn more on raid.

 

"Yes it does have"

Then it will tell you have to log into the raid controller.  Usually it will say something like "Hit Control A to enter raid bios'

 

"All 3 Partitions are Basic"

Since you have 4 drives I would suspect you have a raid1 [mirror of two drives which makes them look like one drive] and two standalone drives.
