High-Rely Watchdog Hardware Monitor Technology
Have you ever have a computer lock-up on you? Whether it’s from a power glitch, heat, software bugs, or the odd energetic neutron from a solar flare, we’ve all seen computer systems become unresponsive. The first rule of computer troubleshooting is “reboot it”. It’s frustrating to know that a rare one-time event could prevent you from getting a good backup as well.
Such is the fate of many conventional NAS devices, which are consumer products purpose-built for network attached storage. To provide more dependable backup jobs, High-Rely includes a technology called Watchdog on our HRIC-equipped backup NAS devices. Watchdog monitors supported backup systems to insure the hardware and software are alive and doing what they are supposed to do.
