[QUOTE=ilnot1;2732811]So, our largest data storage devices failing is responsible for most data loss. Quite a report.
As an aside, isn’t the point of RAID (besides striping) to be completely fault tolerant for one lost drive? If you’re losing data with RAID you’re incompetent and shouldn’t be using it in the first place.[/QUOTE]
Everything has it’s weaknesses and you really need off site storage for critical data.
It’s all very well having RAID etc but if your house burns down or is struck by lightning you can still lose everything despite correctly configured systems.
Nothing is ever entirely foolproof but you can get close to it with strict backup regimes and multiple strategies.
