Comment AMD SeaMicro is a better choice (Score 1) 68

It's 10U with 64 almost real servers (haswell xeons) and has integrated storage and networking. You only need to hook up some power and a beffy uplink to it and you're done. And did I mention a rest api to controll it? Works even with openstack baremetal if you want that. Last I heard (two weeks ago) Moonshot is still only at cli.
Apollos on the other side, those are worth considering. But Moonshot ... too little, too late.

Comment Re:750,000 hours MTBF. (Score 1) 238

I've never had two drives fail in the same array. Ever.

Wow, you must be one lucky storage admin. After having whole batches of drives fail within hours of eachother, I'm also assembling all my raids that hold even slightly important data strictly with different disks from different manufacturers. Afterall, having fast access to data is less important than having an access at all.
