Re: Hope they More Reliable Than The Old Model...
I get the whole "Laptop for DR" idea, but what drove them to supply you with a mobile server??? :)
Not really mobile but the server images a mirrored off sight every night.
We do a DR test every year where the entire company has to work from home and our supplier has to spin up the images in their data centre, last time it took them about 3 hours to go from cold start to having the bulk of the users logged in and working.
As for the laptop, the main driver for the beasty was the multi-monitor support, the loadout for the devs here are 3 19" panels on a monitor arm + the laptop, Expensive on CAP-EX but it doesn't take much of an increase in throughput to justify it on an OP-EX basis.
