This kind of error usually occours if the system owner saves on human ressources (either through lack of sleep or lack of education)

Cloud storage rains on '800lb Fibre Channel gorilla' Brocade

seven of five

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.

IBM warns Storwize arrays can DELETE ALL DATA

Re: seven of five What kind of idiot/numptie ...

Hi Matt,

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" [1] XIV interface they now force it upon everything they have. Persistent rumor claims the TSM server will be the next lucky one.

Oh joy.

[1] personally, I´d say "special" as in "special school"

Tape's NOT dead. WHOMP: This 8.5TB Oracle drive proves it

seven of five

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.
