Storage failure?

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! In the world of storage, there is storage, and then their is redundant storage. The question is, what do you have?

I’ve always advocated purchasing storage that has redundancy built in with a lot of hot swappable parts. Otherwise you are just in for a whole lot of trouble when there is an outage. Also if you need to replace a failed part, does it require downing the system, or can you do it live?

Well HP’s EVA is a great example of a system where you can hot replace parts while the storage is still running. EVA is a great solution for a lot of businesses looking for great uptime. If you have a chance, check out the EVA4400 series, you won’t be dissapointed!
