Not another Dell supplied Maxtor SAS HDD failure

This is the fourth Dell supplied Maxtor SAS HDD failure in four months. We wouldn’t expect this many failures in the life time of the array. Fortunately all of our arrays are configured with a Global Hot Spare and we keep a cold spare on site in case Dell Support have shortages or can’t deliver on time. So far none of the failures have resulted in down time or loss of data. We will escalate the reliability issue with Dell on Monday.
