Team One (Computer Edition)

Organizations that store users personal folders on file servers can increase the availability of those folders by using DFS and FRS to store the folders on multiple servers. The following figure illustrates a DFS namespace, \Corp.Contoso.Com\Users, hosted by two servers, ServerA and ServerB. DFS equally distributes the client load between the two servers, and FRS keeps the data synchronized on the two servers. If one of the servers fails, DFS refers clients to the remaining server. Even when one of the servers is unavailable, users can continue to access the \\Users namespace.
