Maxtor had a success with one of their NAS boxes: it could be used to
store all the Exchange mailbox information.  When the Exchange
server(s) went down they could just be rebooted and come up right away
rather than have to rebuild the mailbox (or whatever the process is
called), which with a lot of users can take hours.

It is job security... if $client had moved all their stuff to
Linux/Unix, they would hardly ever call me ... instead they insist on
keeping their Windows XP client machines.
