Anyone who works with computers knows that there are two categories of computer owners: those who’ve had a computer failure and those who about to have a computer failure.

Imagine, if you will the following dreaded scenario:

You make it a rule to back-up your computers at the close of each business day… without fail. But suddenly just prior to the completion of the usual back-up, your computer or server hard drive fails?! The result would be the loss of all of all data saved to the computer that day, the time-consuming recovery from backup, and the delay in being able to utilize your computer.

ForeSight Computer Solutions offers a simple solution to this much feared scenario: RAID, the acronym for Redundant Array of Independent Disks.

A RAID disk drive, if configured to protect your computer from that inevitable and untimely hard drive failure, will save your invaluable business data on multiple hard drives.

Now, if that same hard drive failure mentioned above were to happen to your computer and you had a RAID configuration:

  1. A message would be received advising you of the hard drive failure
  2. You would arrange to have the failed drive replaced
  3. Your computer should continue to run without any loss of files and,
  4. Your files would be copied to the new drive providing redundancy.

Just think of it as flying an airplane with two engines instead of one OR driving with an additional tire mounted next to the tire that about to fail. Why wait for a catastrophe to strike …only to find out it was a costly mistake to neglect basic IT services?
