To avoid boredom in the Giga-International department we revised our hardware RAID offers for you.
For those who do not know what it is exactly – here is the explanation:
RAID (redundant array of independent disks) is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways called “RAID levels”, depending on what level of redundancy and performance (via parallel communication) is required (source: Wikipedia).
The upgrade RAID 1 stands for “mirroring” because the contents are stored simultaneously on two hard disks.
In short, a RAID solution helps to create a higher Data security and to improve the performance.
When ordering a RAID 1 you have to select the extra upgrade that you can find in the category “Data security”.
The hardware RAID provides even more performance and stability than a software RAID; a high quality controller of 3Ware or Adaptec is used.
The upgrade is easily available when ordering a Giga Dedicated Server Quad and Core i7, because these two already provide 2 identical hard disks.
If you are ordering a sever which has only one hard disk or two hard disks which do not share the same capacity, you will need to order an additional hard disk with the same size as an upgrade.
The standard upgrade for RAID 1 is already available for 199,99 EUR; this is just a one-time setup fee, there is no monthly fee.
If you are interested in a higher RAID-level with more hard disks don’t hesitate to contact us – we fulfil any of your individual wishes.
• RAID: Hardware-RAID 1 or 10 available for 199,99 EUR (one-time setup fee)
• RAID: Hardware-RAID 5 or 6 available for 299,99 EUR; (BBU is available for an extra charge)
We are looking forward to your inquiry 🙂
