Intel Completes McAfee Acquisition

anexkahn Re:Speaking as an admin ... (95 comments)

I deal with the DAT distribution problem by using a Windows DFS Share. I created a DFS Share which replicates to each office, then Mcafee dumps the DAT and other files onto the DFS Share. Windows then does the differencing using RDC (Remote Differential Compression). The workstations are setup to use a secondary repository which points to the DFS share.

Doing it this way means I don't have hundreds of computers pulling their DATs over the WAN and there is less to send over the WAN because of RDC.

I agree that Mcafee should do something about this, but I have found this to be the best method of DAT distribution at this time.

Do these tweeting birds also have hats made of tin foil? I know revolution is popular over there right now, but does that mean that anything that happens now points toward it?

BlackBerry Devices May Run Android Apps

anexkahn Re:Consumer Victory (158 comments)

I have been known to throw my blackberry curve across the room when it wakes me up on Sunday morning. It still works as well as the day I got it. It also has 3x the battery life of my Motorola Milestone. (Yes I have two phones, Work and Personal).

There are not very many phones with the battery life, durability, and functionality of my blackberry.

Electric Cars Won't Strain the Power Grid

anexkahn Re:2 kilowatts? (438 comments)

Well, the Chevy Volt has about 40 miles of range on the batteries. They did this because most people drive less than 40 miles on a typical day, that would cut your 7.5 kw down to 5 kw. Not sure how to trim it down more, maybe lighter vehicles than you used in your calculation?

Did they really mean Fusion, or did they mean Fission?

I was under the impression that a Fusion reactor was a little harder to build.

Recent Sales Hint That Tape For Storage Is Far From Dead

anexkahn Disk to Disk Backups (228 comments)

Or organization uses Disk to Disk backups. Meaning we backup our SAN to a secondary SAN, then that secondary SAN replicates to an offsite SAN. So we end up with 3 copies of our data.

The problem with Disk to Disk vs Tape: One day someone who didn't understand LUNS mounted the same LUN onto multiple servers and the two servers managed to clobber a bunch of the backups on the secondary SAN. Its harder to do that with tape....but tape has it's own issues.

My recommendation? Disk to Disk to Tape. Use the backups you store on your disks to do your quick restores and use tapes as your off-site backup. It is probably the most cost effective solution, and since the tapes are not plugged into anything no one can touch your server and instantly wipe out ALL of your backups.
