Storage Design for Business Continuity

First Back Continue Last

Storage Redundancy

  • Purpose of storage redundancy is business continuity. This is used to prevent one or more failures of hardware or software resulting in data loss.

  • The common understanding of storage redundancy is to utilize functionalities of the different RAID levels (0-10) or software based technology such as data replication copies.

  • Storage Redundancy can be viewed in three levels:

    • Standalone Server
    • Clustered Environment ( Spanning multiple servers )
    • Disaster Recovery Environment ( Spanning multiple sites )
  • Each of the three levels of Storage Redundancy can be observed within the Mt Xia environment and/or its clients.
