  • Locations throughout the US need a storage strategy. Our current strategy has servers and individual machines backing up to web-based services

    We have a data center I was thinking of acquiring a SAN unit from, then using DFS to copy server files to the SAN and then back that information to a remote storage site. How do I accomplish this with laptops? Do I use folder redirection, that takes too much time when logging in?
