All storage are formatted with double parity** and mirrored offsite*.

By purchasing the departmental data storage, you agree to adhere to the above.
* Offsite in this case does not necessarily mean outside of the department. It can mean server room located at a different building within the department.
** Storage can sustain a minimum of 2 drive failure without losing data.
