One of the issues with PC hardware based solutions is the low stability of the hardware, the low quality of the components available on the market and components incompatibility. An advantage is the low cost and easier replacement. IPACCT utilizes two methods to reduce data loss - daily backup and RAID. One important factor is the time to recover a system from backup. We have developed a methodology to reduce this time to 15 minutes since the availability of an operator and a hardware replacement. For cases that require even higher reliability and availability we develop an automatic backup server solution.
