For HA you're probably looking at something like a SAN for the storage.. just sharing drives (especially over Netbios) is probably worse than having a single machine, whereas things like SANs are designed for handling multiple clients so I'd trust the data integrity much more (although if one machine is sitting idle most of the time that's less of an issue). OTOH a good single machine + a good UPS will probably give you enough uptime for most cases... CVSNT availablility doesn't have to be that high, provided people can update/commit reasonably regularly. Tony
