Raid, and buy 2 exactly the same servers!

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 29, 2006 02:54 AM
RAID - if RAID is used then this fellow would be swapping exact hard drives (that are bought extra and stored).

AND also keep on the shelf an exact copy of the server you bought for parts or for complete swapping of software from one to the other where they are kept in software version synch (for emergencies).
AND maybe keep this other server off-site.

I would be surprised if this key would not be on multiple hard drives in a HardWare RAID scenerio.

Moral: Use RAID and buy extra servers for parts, etc!
