Windows NT: Remember Microsoft's almost perfect 20-year-old?

Jesse G

I'm annoyed when I hit a page on the intranet that says to use my NT logon. Like anyone not in IT knows what that is.

Seems there are still some die-hards around creating helpful tips for how to login.

Re: $166k to cable one Dell server?!?

You're forgetting that they are probably talking about port costs, not just cabling (both labor and actual cables/gbics).

With two 40gb/s cables coming from each rack server, you're potentially removing 6+ ports and cables from the top of rack and whatever amount that translates up to the "core."

Though I'm assuming they use Dell blades with Infiniband switches. Which would mean they need 2-4 cables per 16 servers.

Great time to post this story.

WTF?

reverse polish graphs?

Is it me, or is this the only graph to have Q3 to the left of Q2?

Or is this the correct way to graph storage growth?

Tape and dedupe: So not happening

Jesse G
WTF?

Oracle Fanboy?

Not sure about all this talk of Oracle in this space.

When I think dedupe, I don't think Oracle. Maybe EMC or Netapp? They are both hardware companies that actually do dedupe.
