Honestly, $50,000 for 96TB usable is bloody cheap. A similarly configured StoreOnce runs more than $200k.
Error in LTO6 capacity
It should be 2.5TB native, not 3.2TB native.
Re: I don't understand
You're not behind the times. It's just that with more deduplication being done there is less need for tape drives. I'm doing preliminary scoping work for a new setup and what used to be done by 8xLTO4 drives can now be done by 4xLTO6 (or less) drives.
Anybody got any idea how much 3PAR with Windows Storage Server 2012 can scale? And with daily backups to tape? Above 100TB?
I think their IT department shafted them - you may notice they're still using EVA and MSA for other services - presumably file.
Why is everybody comparing 2TB HDDs from Amazon???
While off-the-shelf consumer grade HDDs may be usable small enterprises and provide a good price advantage, for larger enterprises (those with storage arrays) these drives do not cut it.
The cheapest 2TB SATA I can find is from HP's MSA60 Direct Attached Storage system at a retail price of $539. You can be sure those that connect to storage arrays (EMC Clariion, HDS AMS2000, HP EVAs) costs more than that! These drives normally come with NBD 3-5 years support (depending on vendor).
Mine's with the enterprise-level HDD, not the consumer-level HDD.
440k disk IOPS (no cache)? Really? Did it go through SPC benchmark? How was this figure derived?
Have you considered biometric logins? Things like fingerprint scanners are standard on new laptops nowadays. However, if you have desktops, that may be a bit of a hassle.
IE vs Firefox crash
IE8 runs each tab as a separate process while Firefox runs all tabs as 1 process. This makes IE8 much more robust - the only downside is IE8 consumes more RAM than Firefox. At this moment in my PC Firefox (5 tabs) uses 190MB while IE8 (3 tabs) uses 290MB.
Forgot HDDS (sounds like HDS eh? :) )
The Hitachi Data Discovery Suite (HDDS) is one of the products that can integrate into HCP and provide eDiscovery. HDDS also has a Sharepoint module (aptly called HDDMS - Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft Sharepoint).
