Re: why replace servers

The 'servers' apparently comes from a quote by the Nasdaq Nordic CEO, who probably understood the technical explanation as "thingies in compjooter room went boom". And what's likely being replaced are the disk shelves, or maybe the entire SAN racks. I can think of a few reasons to do it that way instead of just the disks themselves, like the old disks not having a direct replacement any more and the current generation being 2.5" instead of 3.5", or shelf controllers not being able to handle larger capacity drives with again the correct-sized replacements having been phased out.
