you use rsync to only write what's new, there may be significant delays while
you do the dump.

So can bad RAM and/or bad hard drives. In my experience SSDs are now no
more or less prone to problems than any other part of the computer. Backups
should be approached like voting in Chicago - early and often!

It'd be extremely hard to find a server that runs quietly enough for a studio
environment. I have a nice tower that was designed to be as quiet as possible.
Putting SSDs in will allow me to make it even quieter than it is now.

I do agree that having 2 mirrored drives is more secure, though.
