Recently I found myself waiting to use my diagnostic servers, and I must tell you I wasn’t too thrilled. With the increase in the size of hard drives, the servers have to work twice to five times longer than just a couple of years ago. Since the service work or hard drive recovery isn’t done til I finish, I found myself waiting. Often more than not it was unbearble.
To combat this I implemented two more servers to keep up with the demand. Since I added the two servers I haven’t had to wait to get drives tested and fixed. When drives reach twenty terabytes, I’m sure I’ll have to add a few more.
