Disk drive fired 'Frisbees of death' across data centre after storage admin crossed his wires

Ahead of their time

"Yes, that Data General, the one that EMC acquired for US$1.1bn in 1999 so it could make hay with the CLARiiON iSCSI SANs"

The original CLARiiON disk arrays were SCSI, not iSCSI, and had migrated to Fibre Channel by the time EMC acquired them. iSCSI came much later, I think with the AX series.

[Source: I had a bunch of 1st generation EMC DAEs in a 42U cabinet in my kitchen, until a few years ago when my long-suffering partner realised how much electricity they were drinking.]
