Been a while since I updated this blog. Too busy running around, evangelizing cool technologies, eating rich food, not exercising and spending WAY too much time in airports delayed due to bad weather. Someone needs to either:
Well, just finished the meal. Steak was ordered medium-rare, arrived medium, a bit chewy (but still tasty) and not hot. I was too tired to complain and ate military style (i.e. it was gone in a minute).
The 26oz ribeye I had at Wollensky’s a couple years ago was a religious experience, comparatively. That thing needed a butterknife, at most. Sometimes staring at it hard enough was sufficient to lop off a piece.
I admit I don’t have enough of a statistical sample for either joint.
Just thought I’d share this.
I don’t know if this has been discussed elsewhere but I felt like I had an epiphany so there…
They way I see it, in a decade or two the most important technology regarding data will be data classification and search technologies.
Re the previous post:
If you want to use supercache or uptempo the idea is that you take AWAY from windows/SQL/exchange cache and add to the fancy cache.
One subject I keep hearing about is deduplication. The idea being that you save a ton of space since a lot of your computers have identical data.
One way to do it is with an appliance-based solution such as Data Domain. Effectively, they put a little server and a cheap-but-not-cheerful, non-expandable 6TB RAID together, then charge a lot for it, claiming it can hold 90TB or whatever. Use many of them to scale.
