12.A production cluster is attached to redundant disk fabrics and a tape fabric. Each cluster member has access to twelve (12) TB of RAID 5 production storage and twelve (12) TB of RAID 0 local replica accessed through eight HBAs single initiator zoned to sixteen storage ports on one storage subsystem.
The tape fabric includes one connection to each server and connections to four (4) 1Gb FC to SCSI gateways connected to ten (10) LTO II (35MB/s) tape drives. The standby cluster member performs multi-threaded backups using the local replica. All HBAs and ports are 2Gb/s. If the recovery time is equal to backup time, where is the bottleneck?

B. Disk HBAs
C. Tape Drives
D. FC to SCSI Gateway
Answer: A

13.After a company experienced a localized disaster, the Business Continuance Plan was reviewed.
