      WHAT IS RAID? The most likely component to fail in any computer is the moving part – the hard drive that is spinning anywhere from 5400 RPM to 10,000 RPM. RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a redundant system that uses multiple hard drives to store your data, so that even if one drive fails, your data is still safe and accessible.

      Unstoppable Computing: Enterprise Network Availability at an SMB Price

You rely on your network servers to share your business-critical files, applications, and data, as well as to host your email and Web environments.

Active Directory was first released with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003.

      Case Studies

      Lenovo Drives Benefits as It Tees Up Storage Solution to GoLf Club’s Green Policy
      One of the issues around replacing new technology is that like-for-like swaps don’t necessarily bring the maximum benefit. Sometimes a more strategic approach is needed to see which option makes more sense over the longer term from a cost and a management point of view. Just as golfers call on their caddy’s counsel when choosing the best club to play a difficult shot, it’s so important for organizations to have trusted IT partners to provide the right advice to make winning decisions.
