Welcome to Holdan's Quick Guides
Manufacturers constantly release new technology more advanced than the previous generation product. Eventually developers can boast a vast range of closely related products, with endless and impressive technical specs... no problem for technophiles, but bewildering for others.
So these guides are not designed with experts in mind. Rather, they are intended for example to assist:

- Technical assistants more familiar with SDI signals than RAID array configurations
