Can you recommend a fault tolerance method and a removable storage backup?

I heard that hard drives can fail at times and I am worried that if the drive on the server fails my business operation will come to halt. Please, recommend a fault tolerance method.

I am extremely worried about losing my secret Notes; therefore I would like my Notes to be backed up every night. Which removable storage backup would you recommend for a server?
Yes, any computer can fail with either hardware or software errors. I recommend the Domino cluster feature, which provides excellent redundancy. I have set this up many times for my clients and it works like a charm. You can read about it in the Domino Admin Help database.
