Simplified Technical English Writing Principles

When you apply STE technical writing rules to your technical content, it becomes clearer and more concise. In Simplified Technical English, writers are encouraged to write in brief sentences and keep paragraphs short and simple while ensuring the completeness of information.

Our favourite writing rules are:

 


The Power of One

Use one word for one function, procedure or object.
Use one subject per sentence.
Write only one instruction per sentence.


Be Direct and Clear

Use the imperative verb to write direct and clear commands in instructions.


Short is Sleek

Write procedural sentences of no more than 20 words.

Backing up and recovering data of Exchange clusters The main idea of Exchange clusters is to provide high database availability with fast failover and no data loss. Usually, it is achieved by having one or more copies of databases or storage groups on the members of the cluster (cluster nodes). If the cluster node hosting the active database copy or the active database copy itself fails, the other node hosting the passive copy automatically takes over the operations of the failed node and provides access to Exchange services with minimal downtime. Thus, the clusters are already serving as a disaster recovery solution themselves. Backing up and recovering data of Exchange clusters Exchange clusters have high database availability with fast failover and no data loss. There normally are one or more copies of databases or storage groups on the cluster nodes. If there is a problem with the active database copy or its cluster node, a different node with a passive copy automatically replaces the unavailable node and gives access to Exchange services after a short time.
