can handle several times the bandwidth of an OC3. The real Difference!

We keep back-up servers on-line of all CPU configurations. If
a server experiences a hardware failure, we turn a key, grab the
handle on the drive, pull it out, and insert it into an identical
standby CPU. We would then reboot the second machine and the server
would be up and running again in minutes.
