The server warranty status becomes less important if it is being backed up by the Dependable SafeSTOR backup appliance. That is because the DSS appliance will let us virtualize any failed server within 30 minutes to 90 minutes — regardless of how the physical file server failed. For old servers that are too expensive, or can’t be warrantied by the manufacturer; this works out great and allows you to use your old hardware until it starts failing. By running “virtually” on the DSS appliance for a few days; you get time to procure a new server and your user can keep working.
