The Levels of RAID

Last time we discussed the various benefits of RAID - protection against failure, larger volumes, and improved performance. As with anything in engineering, there are several ways to go about this, each with their own set of tradeoffs. If you have any questions or want to discuss this further, contact us.

Preventing Data Loss with RAID

The concepts of scalability and redundancy go hand-in-hand. Building an environment that is capable of scaling out offers the ability to fine-tune how much failure you can withstand. There are a dizzying approaches to redundancy—power, network, storage, server, data, backup and replication, disaster recovery, load balancing, site redundancy—but for today we're going to hit the basics of one of the most fundamental: storage. More specifically, RAID—a Redundant Array of Independent Disks.

Scalability Part 3: You're Ready for Cloud

In last week’s post, we discussed the advantages that virtualization brings to the table when scaling your environment. Here’s a quick recap:

Scalability Part 2: Virtualization

It used to be that scaling your infrastructure was a simple matter of buying larger boxes or more boxes, but this brings with it increased cost and complexity. As your server environment grows, it consumes more compute, storage, network, and power. Making the most efficient use of those resources is critical to managing costs, and one of the biggest shakeups in how we use computing resources over the last decade is virtualization.

Scalability Part 1: Up And Out

Everyone wants to grow. Whether that's serving more customers, expanding into new markets, or taking care of internal IT for more employees, growth is a measure of the health in business, economies, and nature itself.
