6/5/2012 :: Backup Server Raid Failure (Buserver3)
Posted 05 June 2012 - 05:07 AM
It is not typical that we experience 2 drive failures at once, which is why we opt to use RAID 5, as it offers better performance. However, because we have encountered such a situation, we have chosen to create a new RAID 6 array on the server, which will continue to run even after two drive failures. This will help to ensure that we never find ourselves in a situation like this again.
We have already began repopulating the backup server from local backups on each server. If you have any individual questions or concerns, feel free to contact us via live chat or the help desk link in my signature.

We will keep everyone updated on this project. However, if you are a user that utilizes backup3 I am confident that you are already appreciating the major increases in speed that this change has brought to your backups.
It is a great day to be a TCH GURU!
