Post Mortem of GunnAllen IT Meltdown

Rhinobird Re:Outsourced (192 comments)

Eventually the people in charge are going to realize that any kind of financial institution is basically a database on the internet that holds and exchanges account information. And then they're going to turn ghostly white as they realize all these strangers are touching the equipment that, in a very real sense, IS the bank, er, financial whatever...or worse, those strangers OWN the equipment that IS the financial gobstopper.

And then, at least in finance, outsourcing IT will be seen as a form of insanity.

"If they [GE] really do have a 500GB disk, I come up with 100,000 seconds to fill a disc. There's 86,400 seconds in a day. You do the math,"

Hmm... 500,000MB / 20MB/sec = 25,000 sec. =~7 hours
