There comes a time in every geek’s life….
A look of wonder crossing his face….
A new toy, a new project, a new endeavour….
A beloved wife saying something along the lines of “You bring that damned thing in here and I swear to god…”
This is one of those times.
Over the course of the next few weeks I’ll be moving 50micron.com and it’s assorted supporting systems off of the “OLD” storage (the 8 year old Dell PowerVaults I’ve been running on) and moving to a brand new (for me) NS500..
Now a few things I plan on making happen. This NS500 will become an NS500G and CX500, because there is no way in hell I’m going to continue to live with a captured back-end when there is so much fibrechannel storage to be had, just out of reach.. (No iSCSI in this household, period, end of discussion)
Almost 9TB of storage, between the rack of 73G drives (pictured, sitting on top of the NAS) and the rack of 500G SATA disks (not pictured, too heavy for the bakers rack it’s all sitting on right now.)
Ohboyohboyohboyohboy. This is the kind of thing real geeks live for.
