Today's dumb question......

It's not worth the cost and delivers the same performance as a SAN. They're up to a just over a gig (iirc) and can only be used in RAID 0 or 1. In a database setting you'll still need to replicate your db to a DR site which means you have to go back to mirroring or log shipping which is far more intrusive on the server than SAN replication.
p.s. Yes I do regret putting tempdb on a couple of these.
Got a couple of cards.
No faster than our SAN for the same price. Can only run as RAID 1.
Waste of money.....
That is all.

Them: We cannot change the terms so we will have to leave this one.
Me: But that line says you can ;-)

I'll stand next to you!
Then, by extension, we can DCMA Google....
Does anybody still believe this BS that they keep sprouting. Why is it so difficult to be honest?
As much as it pains me....

Got my call
Last night they offered to reduce my contract by 25% and give me a free handset. I don't know why the put down the phone when I wanted to take up the offer. I just wanted to know how they'd reduce my Orange bill! I must admit that she started getting touchy when I use false and advertising at the same time.
