    Backup solution for small dental office

    Most dental/medical are cheap. Selling Datto may not be feasible. However the Alto unit is free just pay for service. So depending on who was raping them for online backup it may make sense. I know some charge $3/GB for Dental/Medical online backup. If you need help reach out to me.

    Why Are Commercial Rackmounted Servers So Long?

    if it doesn't have much data and limited use, the r210 series is good and you can use a cyberpower rackmount the 750va would power that thing and isn't deep. raid 1 should be plenty for a simple program. or even use SSD since the R210 are cheap.

    Hard Drive for HP Onboard Raid

    A new client called me with SSD in Raid on a microserver. The previous tech purchased 2 SSD in Raid1 and 2 2TB in Raid 1. They are not drives from HP. The solid state drives keep dropping out of the array so I suggested we use raid specific drives. I was thinking Seagate Constellations...

    Exploring HA options for a small network

    4-Hour isn't necessary. Well in my opinion. Most offices can still survive if they were down for a day. I wouldn't spend the extra funds. SAS is always standard for me. 4 300GB SAS in Raid 10 is plenty data for an office. Single VM is fine. The roles take up nothing. Look at Backup...
