comment How do I convince my boss that RAID is a good solution?
(As a practical tip) Try to either get hold of a well setup test server or try to get invited to a vendor open day, where you can show your boss how it works. Pull out drives (still running). Insert new drives (still running) etc etc.

comment Why is it that highend servers fail more often than heavily used workstations?
We have plenty of servers, running into the 100's. But we have very few (unlucky if we have 1 a year) fail. (Tell a lie, we have a big Sun 6800 server that after 5 years of trouble free uptime, blew a motherboard and some RAM a few weeks ago.)
