I've been working in Channel Marketing for the past 13 years and I'm still amazed at the complexity, yet ease of doing business in the channel.

Weather. Power surges. Not paying bills on time. There are all kinds of reasons – some beyond your control – as to why your servers and computers might lose power at any given time. But there is no reason to rely on enterprise storage that will lose your data when service is interrupted.

So check out out our video on Toshiba's HK3R Enterprise-class Solid State Drives with power-loss* and end-to-end data** protection.

The video above tells a cautionary tale; one where enterprises let their customers and employees down by investing in storage solutions that are unreliable and won't bounce back quickly and effectively.
