RAID SSD Hard Drives

Your websites' data is protected with hardware based RAID controllers, this ensures that if a hard drive fails for any reason, your websites' data is mirrored on a secondary hard drive. This allows us to easily schedule a replacement of the failed drive without causing data loss. We alos use hotswap based server so we can replace any disk without requiring downtime. In the highly unlikely event that all hard drives fail within the server, we have off-site backup servers with copies of all of our websites' data.
