Quite a few small businesses run "easy" backup solution, doing a full GFS rotation for every server they have.
6 per week, 5 per month and another 13 for the year times three servers and all your tapes are used up. Or rather allocated.
And being able to take something in your hand and say "that´s the filemailserver from the 66th of maycember" gives the poor slob which does "that computer stuff" some confidence.
Yes, that is rather inefficient, but a single drive from an array is more difficult to bring offsite. and its not all eggs in one basket (array) as well.
I can see the point.

Is this the same Oracle corp?
Is this the same Oracle like the one trying to slip McAffee with all my java updates?
I´ve always asked myself:
Is tape as dead as mainframes? :)

They look worse in real. Like an Hippo in a pink tutu.
Granted though, they drive rather well.

These woud be too big for their own good, rebuild time is far too long already.

Re: -- anyone?
most UNIX systems do not support --, but on linux (and most probably, BSD) this should do the trick.
directory write access?
Wouldn´t you need write access to the directory in order to use this exploit?
Re: I am not an American!
Ahhahaha... we want information.
Whats the fuss, over here I just have to look around to see several massive, dim objects.
"[A] threat to our society that we need to take action against?"
I´d like to know what our society is and why it is threatened by bittorrent. Or tor.
Then again, maybe I´d better don´t want to.
How much of this money goes to AMD?
How much of that fine will be awarded to AMD, who were unfairly treated?

Five. It is five horsemen (or rather four and one chariot, granted. Still makes five, though.).

I´ll have to check the brickipedia, can´t remember, never was much into them.

The really important question here:

The issue was more subtle:
the message shown on top of the page was made to look exactly like a warning from within the browser, screenshots here:
...which is what was bemoaned.
Same thing happened to Birgenair 301 back in ´96 on the trip back from the Dom Rep. Was a 757 back then, autopilot got confused, then the pilots messed it up and... fireball.
"Imagine a random, infinite sequence of numbers containing nothing but +1s and -1s."
Yes, I do that quite often. Usually when SWMBO starts one of her ... characteristics.
Re: Shame about the nasty front cover.
Judgeing by your username, I´d exepected you to suggest pirates.
"a "simple thing" – a light-up "do not remove" indicator – that warns admins not to yank out a drive while it is reading, writing, or being rebuilt,"
like an activity led? Now thats smart, why hasn´t somebody else... oh, wait.
This kind of error usually occours if the system owner saves on human ressources (either through lack of sleep or lack of education)
"8 or 16GB of NVRAM, with persistent write logs, to accelerate and optimise writes;"
2 PB capacity and 16 GB cache? Or is this something different and the cache sizes are yet to be announced?
Re: Stating the bleeding obvious
otoh, FCoE capable hardware is not exactly for free, either.
This is excellent news, now the HBA will no longer be relevant for certification, significantly reducing the amount of "niche" knowledge needed for your BCFA/BCFP.

Re: What's the 128G FC?
QSFP, that is. Exists already for the ICL on DCX platform.
Getting bought is not an option as neither IBM nor HP would tolerate this - relabeled Brocade hardware is central to both companies.
Buying Mellanox -albeit cool- would just give them another niche unless the could add mellanox IB technology to their etherstuff. otoh, the ethernet market is corned by cisco, so it would not make sense.
They might concentrate on "anything but ethernet" with mellanox, but.. dunno, is this worth it? Mellanox would not come cheap.

Soooo this is why the arm themselves
The Supreme Court is the supreme judical institution within the US, now isn´t it?
So this is why the US citizens arm themselves. At last I understand. Unfortunately, guns won´t help them poor slobs.
How save I feel with the uk being part of this :(
Volcanos? Hardly. Teutonic activity very much:
These tremors are the result from the constant fighting the Nazis have to do against the last remaining dinosaurs, both of whom had chosen the same refuge.
Re: seven of five What kind of idiot/numptie ...
Of course they advise to secure the admin port. Which helps exactly zilch if: "Administrative access to the system via the IP interface may be obtained without authentication".
Apart from this, you seem to have the same customers as me, more often than not security is run over by convenience. It is all sad.
Re: What kind of idiot/numptie ...
Unfortunately, said webserver is not optional. IBM is so exceptionally proud of their "special"  XIV interface they now force it upon everything they have. Persistent rumor claims the TSM server will be the next lucky one.
 personally, I´d say "special" as in "special school"
To (very loosely) cite Franklin
Those who sacrifice precision to gain a little cost saving deserve neither.
...users and beancounters, BAH!
Re: home tape solution = external hard disk
apart from the cost issue, with a single client you will usually not be able to keep the drive fed for streaming. Disks are much more forgiving, getting the minimum 40 MB/s for a LTO4 over several hours can be challenging.
Re: home tape solution
No, use a couple of external drives and treat them like tapes with a bundled drive (always have two on two different sites, never overwrite your current, etc....). Tape does not scale below some ten TB anymore.

Re: Something not quite right..
Nope, different house - this one is a proper gas explosion. (with a 59 year old in critical condition).
Re: Something not quite right..
150k Eur should buy you a quite nice house in something as remote as Diepholz.. He must have taken apart an apartment block. (HA!)
The "source" is Bild (like the sun, but worse), so it is most probably a blatant lie.
