Fault Tolerance Preference

By Debbie at New Directions ·
I recently purchased a new Gateway 7210 Server and am making decisions on implementing it on our current network. Gateway tells me that I must use HARDWARE FAULT TOLERANCE rather than the SOFTWARE FAULT TOLERANCE in Windows NT 4.0.

Do you have any information on the pros and cons of this scenario? Any articles about this out there?

You don't need 3 identical drives to set up RAID 5. You can set it up using 3 - 9 gig or less partitions across the drives you have.
