Network RAID – only available from HP

    * The ultimate in high availability: Traditional hardware RAID and
redundant components are simply not good enough when it comes to your
data. Only HP offers Network RAID which protects you from
outside-the-box issues such as human error, power, cooling and
networking issues.
    * Per-volume redundancy: You control which volumes will be protected by
Network RAID.
    * Space efficient protection: Network RAID does require additional
capacity. But oh is it worth it! Also, VSA offers other efficiencies
that more than compensate for this extra storage. Thin provisioning is a
great example. Provision volumes at their actual size and allocate
additional storage only as it’s required.
