Rajesh Sundaram NetApp builds resiliency into its storage systems at every level to ensure that critical data is always protected, including technologies such as SnapMirror®, SnapVault®, and SnapRestore® that protect you from events ranging from sitewide disasters to user and application errors. NetApp also offers a unique degree of resiliency against problems that occur within disk drives themselves. This paper described five of the most troublesome disk problems and the resiliency technologies that NetApp Engineering has developed to protect against them.
