What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you're worried about the connector being different, there are connector adapters to convert from 68-pin to 50-pin, but if your SCSI adapter has both internally, you won't have to worry about it.  Other than that, they should work together.  Make sure you change the termination if you add the drive to the same cable.

rpwy221,

Why did you accept Da-Bu's comment as the answer?  I think he was only commenting on the humor aspect of compfixer101's remark, not really answering the question.  Right, Da-Bu?

Calandor... You're right....
I think that compfixer comments are the most funniest ones on EE. They don't help much, but, they make as laugh.... at least me...

So, if rpwy221 would accept someone else answer, I'm willing to give the points back ...

Bye all!!!
