What sort of redundancy (power, disk, memory etc.) is built into the host server?

Curious to know the types of redundancy built into the host server:

1) Does the host use dual power supplies? Are they fed with A+B power, or A+A?
2) Does the host use SSDs set up in a redundant configuration?
3) Does the host use ECC memory?
4) Is the BIOS memory configuration set up for any redundancy? (e.g. mirrored, spared, etc)

Hello friend!

Happy to answer these for you:

  1. Dual PSU, A+B power.
  2. SSDs are in RAID10.
  3. We do use ECC memory.
  4. We do not have any kind of memory mirroring/redundancy configured.

I hope that helps you with what you needed to know :)

Kind Regards,
