 English term or phrase: uncertainty Research shows that as much as 70% of storage will be networked in 2006. There are multiple ways to network storage resources for the purpose of sharing either the capacity or the data residing on the resources. 1、为了共享存储容量（capacity）或者存储资源上的数据 2、为了共享存留存储资源上的容量或者数据 Which one is correct??

 Chinese translation:第一种 Explanation:我也认为第一种译法比较好。 我明白你的问题， residing 引导的成分是只修饰data，还是也包括 capacity？我认为，从逻辑上讲，应该是两者都包括。这里共享的是 resources，即存储设备。但存储设备上有两样东西可以共享，一是存储空间 (capacity residing on the resurces)，二是已有数据 (data residing on the resurces)。 你的第一种译法是清楚明白的。如果想更靠近原文，可以译为：“为了共享存储资源上的容量或已有数据”。 --------------------------------------------------Note added at 2003-12-07 06:43:30 (GMT)-------------------------------------------------- 我选择第一种译法，因为中文比较通顺达意。我知道，您在给出第一种译法时，是把 reside on 理解为仅修饰 data。但是，由于您把 capacity 译为“存储容量”，这实际上与正确的译文“存储资源上的容量”相去不远，就是说，逻辑上的缺陷大部分被弥补了，因此是可以接受的。 而第二种译法，虽然逻辑上是正确的，但对 residing 的诠释不正确。“存留”一词不能兼顾两个方面。如果“存留”解做“尚有”、“剩余”，那它不适合描述 data，如果“存留”解做“保存”、“存储”，那它不适合描述容量。所以，我认为第二种译法不如第一种。 --------------------------------------------------Note added at 2003-12-08 14:18:22 (GMT)--------------------------------------------------最后的版本较好。
