Foxtel calls on wisdom of the clouds

Thumb Down

Too Expensive

Perhaps they might do better if they dropped their prices. To get just sport you need to pay $70 per month. To get sport, and one movie pack you're looking at $86 per month. If you also want Discovery Science, The History Channel and BBC Knowledge you need to add on another $16 - or go with the Gold Value Pack at $105 per month. HD is an extra $15 on top of that. If you want all the movies it's even more.

Exchange 2010 dumps single instance storage

Billc

Storm in a teacup

Exchange 2010 has been designed to maximise I/O performance by using sequential I/O rather than randmon I/O where ever possible. To enable that they have had to do away with SIS.

However, a large number of storage vendors are now adding dedupe to their products. Block level dedupe is likely to be much more efficient than SIS. If you really want the storage efficiency of SIS you're probably much better off doing at the hardware layer.

Intel powers down Xeons for microservers

Home VMware Server

All I need is a hime version that I can install ESXi onto. Then I can run my own Exchange server, Apache server, etc. without doubling my power bill.
