I won’t play coy and string you along. I will just expound on my reasons in my choice for our new storage then give you the answer you have waited for.
Does it perform within the parameters set (see below)? Can I measure objectively? What changed parameters caused differences in expected output? Are all features included or must I make a compromise?

Those purple stripes clash with my servers, wtf? So, onward we go, with help from an office mate who wishes to remain anonymous; let’s […]
Back in September, 2009, I had written a post with a quick overview of what a private cloud (or infrastructure) looks like and some basic costs and information, including why it is a great product (I am biased). Since then, Dell has retired the PE2900III model server and items change, this is an update for the basic configuration. Reminder graphic: […]
So, across my RSS feed today, I saw a blurb… Apache terminates ‘outated’ web server What? I clicked the link and was sent off to The Register for their report on the issue. Apache 1.3 was released in July, 1998 – 12 years ago, and still in operation today. At ipHouse – we use 1.3 as the tried and true […]
Wowzers, quite a little thread going on in a newsgroup, but really, what’s the big deal? I think I know… Not everyone uses the Internet for viewing web pages and downloading pr0nself-help videos and television shows.
