2.Propose the DFS components that you would consider implementing and configuring based on the needs of
the organization. Provide a rationale for your proposal.
3. Examine remote differential compression for its ability to meet the requirement of the organization to have efficient data replication between the different office locations.
4.Suggest two (2) means by which DFS can improve fault tolerance for critical data stores in organizations, providing a high-availability solution.
5.Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
