Re: Naming machines

An old employer used the naming convention 3 (DC) - Name - 2 (Node - optional)), and named database clusters after planets. We had two sites - STN and WAK, so we had STN-Jupiter(-01/2) and WAK-Neptune(-01/2).

Unfortunately, management objected to the next name in the schedule for the new cluster we building - WAK-URANUS
