If I Choose to Implement, What Should I Expect?

If you choose to implement, these are the steps you can expect to happen:
  1. The server that you will use must support iSCSI. The connnection to the storage at LACA will be over the iSCSI protocol.

  2. Contact LACA with the amount of space you need, and we will provision the storage and work with you to get that storage joined to your server.
NOTE: The data stored at LACA is NOT backed up by LACA. You are responsible for backups to the data as if it was stored locally.  This service simply provides off-site disk storage, no backups.
