Home RAID and LOCKSSGreat discussion here and on StorageMojo on home RAIDOver on StorageMojo the discussion is converging on a low-overhead (in human cycles) solution consisting of local NAS + some kind of automated remote backup. Anybody holding a piece of Mozy or Carbonite should feel good.
Storage is what makes a computer your computer. Robin Harris writes about storage and other tech with a focus on the SOHO/SMB market. And fun stuff, too, like PS3 supercomputers and Google's technology.
Robin Harris has been a computer buff for over 35 years and selling and marketing data storage for over 30 years in companies large and small.

I've been a big fan of both Carbonite and Mozy ever since I investigated them for StorageMojo my other blog.So I was very glad to hear that Mozy had released a beta Mac client, well ahead of Carbonite.
Fellow ZDnet blogger George Ou posted this morning on Why dumb-downed no-RAID storage is bad for consumers. With all due respect, George couldn't be more wrong.
Files: quickly getting bigger. Networks: slowly getting faster.
Has Intel ever met a technology they couldn't make hotter, costlier and slower? The latest victim: DRAM.
Email isn't email anymore - if it ever wasAs soon as you have more email than you can remember, email is so much more than email. It is a database of your friends, your business, your life.
Is Vista any better?With massive storage comes massive, unstructured data: needle in a cybernetic haystack.
Given all the pixels spilled over Microsoft and Google, the answer is obvious. Except to me.
Is RAID 1+0 superiority a myth?My fellow ZDnet blogger, George Ou, makes some strong statements, bolstered by damning performance numbers, that it is.
Why do people think RAID means performance?George Ou, Technical Director at ZDNet and a fellow ZDnet blogger, has a great post about real life RAID performance - hardware vs software - plus some helpful comments about data layout, especially for MS SQL Server.
