In doing so, storage troubleshooting becomes more difficult to categorize hot data, dynamic and agile storage capacities, and other new age concepts.

Today we’re following up on a previous blog where we investigated network troubleshooting in a 3-2-1 hardware stack. As a reminder, the term “3-2-1” refers to a redundant architecture of three servers, two…
