What We Do

Accordance Systems provides affordable data protection to business and home office users. The Accordance ARAID is a RAID 1 system and provides complete data protection, ensuring no data loss in the event of a hard disk failure.

Need for Data Protection

Despite the advances in magnetic storage media, hard disk failures are occurring today at an increasing rate. In 2007, Google Inc. observed the annualized failure rates (AFR) of commercial PC hard disks varied from 1.7% to over 8.6% for drives in their 3rd year of operation.
Disk Failures
