Ask Slashdot: What Type of Asset Would You Not Virtualize?

Maskirovka Re:Busy databases (464 comments)

Shared disk does not make I/O happy.

PCIE SSDs are advertised to deliver 100,000 to 500,000 IOPs. Has anyone experimented with PCI-Express based SSD solutions in their VM hosts to keep high IO VMs like VDI and SQL from swamping their SAN infrastructure?

White House Petition To Investigate Dodd For Bribery

Maskirovka Re:Cracked just did an article on these petitions (596 comments)

27 Billion Gigabytes to be Archived by 2010

Maskirovka duh...users store their files in their email! (178 comments)

article summary:

Users in a lot of places use their email as a document management system. This is somewhat effective on an individual basis, but in large organizations shared documents get duplicated dozens or even hundreds of times as each user has their own copy. In the next few years products like Sharepoint will alleviate some of that, though storage is cheap enough that it may not be worth the cost to both reeducate users and build the infrastructure for it. A SAN can hold real a lot of word documents and PDFs after all...
