Bah, a pageful of links doesn't have the same weight as a ream of paper dropped on the table in front of each participant =)
Interesting, you're right the IODrive 2 brings MLC much closer to SLC, there's only a 2x performance delta on an IOPS/GB basis (270k 4k random writes vs 140k for 400GB vs 365GB), for the first generation (which I own a number of) the gulf was much wider.
SLC is ~10x the IOPS/GB for random writes compared to MLC, reads are generally only 20-30% faster.
Why write anything? Include the full expanded content from the MS KB article for the update, they generally run 1-5 pages each if printed on 8.5x11/A4
I have never seen a smaller version ssd have a better IOPS number than a larger one.
I have, plenty of times, SLC has better IOPS/GB than MLC and within MLC eMLC has better IOPS/GB than tMLC. So for a given number of dollars the smaller drive will have better performance.
Crucial M500 480GB = $240 or $.50/GB
WD BLACK SERIES WD4003FZEX 4TB = $260 or $.065/GB
Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB = $139 or $.046/GB
prices are current at newegg
The HDD's are around 10x as cheap per GB.
The most crime-ridden location in the US is 80% white. Both violent and non-violent.
And there is black flight. Most definitely.
Poor white people are not nearly as violent as poor black people.
Tell that to the families of the dead in Overland, Kansas.
You racist shit, what are you too embarrassed to post under your "Third Way" moniker tonight?
I predict a sucky game.
I agree about Left/Right. The real divide is Top/Bottom. Even the notion of "individual/collective" is kind of a dodge in this instance. The only "collective" that I see anywhere in the US is aggregate capital in the form of the corporation.
Thanks for the info. That's what I'd assumed, and hoped.
So I'm not sure where this idea that these audits are "American only" or that there is something preventing someone from pointing out a vulnerability comes from.
Generally, I trust stuff that has lots of eyes on it.
Ted Unangst wrote a good article called "analysis of openssl freelist reuse"
This bug would have been utterly trivial to detect when introduced had the OpenSSL developers bothered testing with a normal malloc (not even a security focused malloc, just one that frees memory every now and again). Instead, it lay dormant for years until I went looking for a way to disable their Heartbleed accelerating custom allocator.
it's a very good read.
LOL, only to internal customers =)
Yes, I've heard of Xen, and I've even run it in production, both Xenserver and Oracle VM flavors, and both sucked horribly. Back when VMWare tried the v.Tax I contemplated switching to KVM using RHEV but Redhat took almost 30 days to even get me access to a RHEV download by which time VMWare had backed off on their pricing.
As to the crack about redundancy and scalability, I've got a better uptime metric than any cloud provider, zero unplanned downtime in the last 5 years (vmotion + svmotion makes replacing both hosts and storage a breeze) thanks to redundant generators, UPS, chillers, and internet connections.
