A la “Office Space”…
This is what happens when you get tired of servers crashing on you. You make a preemptive strike. This one won’t be bothering us anymore (okay it’s been off for over a year, but it still felt good after everything we’ve been through).
In addition to a couple screw drivers and a hammer impaled into the box, I discovered you can make a great musical instrument (a shaker) out of a hard drive. If you hit it hard enough the platters inside shatter into thousands of little pieces that then float around inside the case.
Don’t piss off IT guys. 🙂
What’s a FLD? That’s a F#%$ Load of Disk. 🙂
We just put hooked up a Dell PowerVault MD1000 RAID array to a file server in our Spokane office. The chassis has 15 750GB drives in it, arranged in a RAID 50 array (2 sets of 7 disks in RAID 5 with a RAID 0 stripe across both RAID 5’s, 1 global hot spare). Over 8TB of online storage … that’s 8,000GB!
