So the sales tax is ok, but a road maintenance tax is going to totally change their behavior.
There are no current 95% efficient PC power supplies. 80 Plus Platinum only requires 89% efficiency at full load. In ONE case, dell/delta make a 80 Plus Titanium power supply that can hit 96% efficiency... but it's a dual-redundant power supply, and only if it's under 50% load, but 90% at 10% load, and 91% at 100% load.. Both of which are more likely scenarios -- My servers are either fairly idle, or running hard.
Wouldn't it be easier to just tax tires instead of gas/electric for the purposes of road maintenance?
I'll wait for 4.1, and then I'll wait for 4.1.2 just to be safe.
Raid 10 can survive SOME 2-drive failures (in a 4-drive raid 10), and has significantly faster write speeds than Raid 5.
Personally, I use a combination of RAID-0 and RAID-6 (not the same array), because Raid-5 for large arrays is almost useless. I've seen too many raid-5's die when the bad drive is replaced and the added stress of the rebuild then kills a second drive. Ouch.
No. You assume that a phone call stating that you won a free trip is false because of two things: you know that the odds of you winning such a thing is minuscule, and you've heard of phone scams and the odds of it being the later is higher.
Flash at least crashes
Fixed that for you.
There is nothing in
Well if it is based on fatalities, then:
Accident rate in general: 4-5%
Accident rate so far with only 48 vehicles: 0%
Without more details, you have no basis to assume the claim of "someone else's" fault is false.
Ah, I thought RAID1 would warn you somehow of bit flips which I assume would be the way heat-deteriorated storage would show up.
It does. The description of how RAID1 works was incorrect. No raid controller that I am aware of implements RAID1 that way. That would include DELL's persec raid controllers, INTEL's ICH raid controllers, Adaptec raid controllers, LSI's raid controllers, rocket raid controllers, and window's implementation.
Sorry, the same applies to parity drives and dedicated parity drives as well during reads.
During writes, all the data on a particular stripe need to be read so that the correct parity can be calculated.
For a RAID1, most RAID controllers (and software RAID implementations) will absolutely read from all devices so as to service the read ASAP.
No, almost every RAID1 controller I've ever encountered does not do that at all. It balances the reads across the drives so that the it maximizes throughput and IOPS. Only when one drive attempts to read a sector and it detects an error through it's internal CRC checks and is unable to rectify the error (short period for raid drives, long period for desktop class drives), THEN it will request the data from the alternate drive and have the original drive correct itself.
Just out of curiosity, I fired up a D14 VM and loaded SQLIO on it. It came back with 253713 IOPs. If you got less than one, you were doing something very very very wrong. BTW, there is no reason to load SQL server of any type on the machine as SQLIO doesn't use it, so uh...yeah.
Did you set up a VPN to your local machine and then test how many IOPs you get to your local machine over a network share? LOL.
