I'm planning to start a rural wireless ISP. I'm going to offer webhosting and 
email and other services, and I've picked out a motherboard for most of the 
servers (8 core Atom, up to 64 GB RAM, 6 SATA, 4 Ethernet). If a disk drive 
fails, I'd like to make sure no data get lost. Should I mirror-stream it to 
another drive, or rsync it to another computer, or both? What about giving 
users access to snapshots in case they mess something up?

If anyone here has done anything similar, please let me know. I probably want 
to talk with you off list.
