Oh, you are soooo funny.
against a ship, even less.
Who comes up with these names?
While it will be in the (storage) news for a while, the pactical releveance for most of us just isn´t there.
selecting your (or rather your companies) next storage system rarely contains "who is the quickest" in step one.
RAS, existing service contracts, hassle free migration and -of course- the numbers returned from your buying department will be more relevant.
I actually do wonder whether they really did themselves a favour by that number - we could never consider such a system now as we need around 1200TB of disk storage, this would result in a hundred of their parallel servers. Thats half a billion iops. Or buy a slower configuration, but who would buy they quickest array there is and then slow it down?
I´d be interested if this really converts to market share.
... it is a lie.
Flee, you fools!
"We actually only used 1.25TB (per server node) for the DRAM (2.5TB total for both nodes) to get 5.1 million IOPS, while Huawei used 4.0TB [in total] to get 3 million IOPS."
Somehow Datacore failed to mention their parallel server had a usable capacity of 12Tbyte, while the V18800 came with 69Tbyte usable capacity, 4,8TB usable per TB cache on datacore vs 17TB per TB on Huawei´s system.
Now how inconvenient would it have been to pay cash for that lousy burger? An ATM is dangerous enough these days, no chance in hell I´ll stick something valid for several thousand euros into that POS (HA!) terminal to pay fo a tenner.
[power is slower than x86, oracle wins, yadda yadda...]
look, kebabbert got a new handle...
having seen what (capable) server admins did to perfectly innocent SAN or arrays, I can sleep comfortably and know:
Their incompetence is my job security.
There is more to storage administration than just allocating gigabytes.

speaking of which: When did the last one of these come out and how happy are HP(now)E about this?
It feels like ages the last time Matt Bryant did one of his "down with POWER, all hail Itanium" rages. At least there is still some life in SPARC...
An interesting post with many uncommon conclusions. And all those great percentages. Nice.
Now, how polite was that! :)
Let me try:
The are above average in their market.
hmm, thats too generic.
They do everything they can. (Noooo, just sarcastic)
How about: They have put up a valliant effort.
Still more income (and certainly more profitable) than most countries on this planet.
Additionally, Win 7 looks stable and all growth of Win X is at the cost of version 8.
First, second and third thing to come will be more imaginative ways to bother those still not on W10 with sneaky downloads and upgrade nagscreens.
Sky, putting the new 451 error code to good use.
So, for a mere 500 quid I do get everything one could wish for:
- stock android
- large battery
- dual sim
- decent camera
Its a trap, isn´t it?
[...]horned, strong arms, huge talons, dwells in the east - its a bloody deathclaw I tell you!
(and how did you survive? I didn´t! Haha, ´loving that joke...)
That is a pretty historic release (most 8 and 16GBit switches should run v7), but then again I would not bet this to be fixed in v7.
[...] Mary?" the PFY asks.
"My name's Sonia."

Only those "Midrange / *NIX systems" can have theses sticks as well and will top out at 16-32TB by then.
another one, of course.

I am impressed (and somewhat disappointed at the same time) you managed to keep a straight face with reporting the tube going red.
two cores @2.5GHz
edit: where do they mention the 5GHz anyway?
pose as germans and apply for permission to launch from a submarine right off their coast?
"Sis will be our Version 2 attempt to launch from submarine number nein (IX) ... quite a drumbeat..." Just don´t let them go into hedgehog mode at you.
Well, I could make her one...
Anyways: Whos the cutie on the title?
given (amongst others) the lack of an ignition system and the engine being built to a compression waaaaay above one suitable for gasoline, i´d say: no.
I would have expected quite a lot of movies could be summarised with "fuck"...
easy: send in a probe which can retrieve Philae and return it to where we can plug a cable. Has to be an orbital facility, though (contamination, you know), so we need to build that first.
We can practise by picking up spirit and fixing that though little guy for another round.

> Nothing was EVER like IE 6.
Actually not even IE6
Odd, I have deactiveted ABP for El Reg but don´t get any ads. Darn, I can´t tell whether I should feel cheated now...
> and start complaining to manufacturers that their firmware is shit
Most of the affected systems are just plain old and EOL. Many vendors will gladly sell you the successor which does not use RC4 anymore.
But quite often there is a very good reason to still use the old product - dependent software releases (or worse, dependent hardware), inability to get migration downtime and of course: money.
not very, but the AK and (especially) rusty Toyota trucks are know to be near indestructable.
In the end of the day we will do multi-million dollar sorties against some speck in the desert worth less than 10k and call it "a victory".
F-35 vs A10? Obviously not head on, as the F-35 does not have enough firepower to bring a hog down - you need the navy for this :)
yes, I know. Its just I am a tad sad to see the hogs finally leaving. But loitering above a battlefield to pick off tanks has become pretty dangerous these days. (really) last of the gunfighters.
 originally awarded to the Crusader.
> [...] to be fighting individual but parallel battles against upper management.
are there others? Everything else is just ... clashes.
Yes, but we did not exactly run version12 on this kind of hardware. Ah, back in the days when 32GB disk still required eight drives. Eleven, actually, as you needed two raid groups (6+1 was the largest allowed on the controller) and you DEFINITLY wanted a hot spare.
This must have escaped me until now.
a 32 Bit version of windows 10?
Honestly: why? The AMD64 extensions are like 10 years old and more than 3GB ram are cheap since forever. What purpose could a dedicated 32Bit OS in the year 2015 possibly fullfill?
Yes, I know, wrong thread an all that...
Obviously, there is only one possible course of action: We´ll have to send another lander which picks Philae up and returns it to earth so we can fetch the drive.
Boy, this would be a great time to own a chip facto - Ah, nevermind.
Probably converted from a piece of eight...
> Assuming you're not being sarcastic
That is a valid assumption, yes (I do work in IT, after all), but in this case my confusion was genuine.
Ok, I read the article, wondered, then I read the wikipedia entry and now I am still wondering:
In plain english please: What is reddit good for?
Looks like the situation is getting out of hand...

Except, of course, that other company. You know, that big, three letter, blue one... The only one they really need to compete against if they finally got off their ar- seats.
> Sure they would need more pilots, but the results would be drastically better.
And they should care about this why?
Drones are cheap, losing one does not produce those nasty black bags and when they hit the wrong tent it is not an issue either. Why bother?
I am with you on this, though I was under the impression there was some kind of gentlemans agreement gizmos need mainframe compatibility in order to be called enterprise and everything else being "just midrange". No matter how quick, smart oder big said midrange thingy is...
Alas, seems like them olden days are gone.
