Once you make this selection, it's time for selecting the target drive on which the write operation will be performed.
Scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have successfully delivered an historic level of laser energy--more than 1 megajoule--to a target in a few billionths of a second and demonstrated the target drive conditions required to achieve fusion ignition.
Applying the third option to our Exchange example, the Exchange data would reside on an iSCSI target drive. Figure 1 illustrates an e-mail server that could be running Exchange with the iSCSI storage in a separate chassis (the e-mail server and iSCSI targets could be in the same chassis, if desired).
Separate IDE ports for each drive not only ensures compatibility without the need for changing jumper settings (all drives are jumpered as "master"), but the failure of one target drive will not affect the others.
Here, each write to a disk block needs to be written to the target drive and acknowledged, written to the source drive, then committed to both before any subsequent read or write I/O can be processed by the disk subsystem.
It then copies the assigned image to the target PC and writes the configuration values to the target drive for later use by the configuration agent.
The SOURCE and the TARGET drive slots are designed to accommodate standard 3.5" or 2.5" SATA hard drives, SSDs, or the Addonics family of 2.5 Flash drives.
Whereas the standard mode is to copy an image from a master drive in the SOLO to a target drive, the tool will also allow this to be reversed with an image being copied from an external drive to a drive in the new product.
The HD Clone Station can also securely erase data from multiple target drives using the USA's Department of Defense 5220.22-M sanitisation recommendation.
Logicube Inc., a formerly Online Device International, delivers a breakthrough new hard drive cloning system that clones OS and applications from a primary hard drive to two target drives at record speeds (exceeding 800MB/minute).
It should be less important how much data is on the drive than it is how fast your drive can get to the data on the tape and move it back to the target drives.
The high-capacity 1:24 HDD Duplicator and Sanitizer allows IT professionals to clone computer systems by performing a sector-by-sector copy, including partition and boot sector information, from a single source hard disk to up to 24 target drives, regardless of brand, operating system or format of the drives.
