So you use RAID5 and identical drives.
Then one dies, so you replace it
Now the remaining drives spend X hours (depending on size) reading every single sector to recreate either the stripe or the CRC. Remaining drives from the same batch with possibly the same defect as killed your first one.
Your first reaction to a failed component really want to be to stress test their compatriots while in production and minus redundancy?
"Only 36 per cent of UK SIM-only customers expect to take a traditional bundle-plus-phone deal when their current plan ends, CCS found."
Sorry, what? So 36% of SIM-only customers will ditch being a SIM-only customer at renewal and return to 'traditional' bundle.
Thus, assuming negligible people exiting mobile ownership altogether means ~64% will keep with their current SIM only approach.
" Mann noted that this figure is considerably higher than the number of SIM-only customers today, who will upgrade to another SIM-only deal – indicating strong growth for the SIM-only bit of the market."
Mann asserts then that 36>64 is that right?
Well I think it's a given that most people know their way to work and all things being equal it is the quickest/easiest route for them, which doesn't change.
The point of this though is to deal with the outliers, and get you to work quicker on those days where something happens - traffic, closure, raptor invasion etc.
It's actually pretty handy, assuming it can accurately include public transport as well as roads to cover both types of commute - you want to stand at a closed station like an idiot because you 'already know' the quickest route?
