The big deal about ETAs

If you administer a data center, service disruptions and data integrity issues are probably your worst nightmare.  EMC Technical Advisories (ETAs) alert you to potential hardware or software issues that could have serious negative impacts on your production environment, such as data loss, data unavailability, or significant loss of system functionality.

EMC Isilon ETAs provide time-critical information about technical issues that affect EMC Isilon products. The advisories include specific details about an issue and instructions to help prevent or alleviate the problem. There are a few different ways to track ETAs. Whichever method or combination of methods you use, pay special attention to ETAs with the impact severity rating of critical.
