Re: Why do we actually still need a SAN?
You never managed a few hundred servers, did you? SAN is cost effective in larger scale, it is faster than direct attached in most cases because of the Storage you put on your SAN generally has hundreds of spindles and tiered storage with SDD. SAN can easily be made redundant. Storage inside every server? Are you mad? How to you propose to manage that with thousands of servers?
..as 15k disks are faster than SSD in many workloads, in the numbers and mix of them you will typically see in high end enterprise storage. E.g. datawarehouse loads can be faster on spinning disks than SDD.
I have only seen VCD used in the eastern European countries. In the rest of the world, DVD is more or less universal, with Bluray on the move into use. VCD is pretty poor quality, especially when you try to run it on HDMI and upscaling on a largish TV.
I'm afraid the VCD is truly on the way out now... just keep an old dvd player around to play it.
What? You need 120C temp water to kill 80% of germs? That is not true. You have to keep the water under pressure to even get it to that temperature.
Most bacterias dies between 70 and 80C, only a few can survive in close to boiling temperatures.
