Comment Enterprise Storage (Score 2) 219

This project must have an unrealistically low budget, otherwise there are quite a few Enterprise solutions that will do all OR a combination of these tasks.

> how do you present it back to the clients?
Look at a NAS, not a SAN. ie NetApp or 3Par C series.

> And how do you back it up?
Disaster Recovery replication to another system or hosted services. NetApp, EMC, 3Par, etc, etc

> Many SAN solutions have a maximum volume limit of only 16TB
NetApp Infinite volumes limit is 20PB

You can contact a sales person from any of those companies to answer any of these questions.

People doing things that benefit themselves is the very definition of capitalism.

Perhaps you're thinking of Asshole Anarchy.

Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets and wage labor.[3] In a capitalist economy, the parties to a transaction typically determine the prices at which assets, goods, and services are exchanged.[4]

Writing legislation to intervene with the free portion of a free market is the opposite of a capitalism. I would like to benefit myself by using the government sanctioned cable under the ground to create my own ISP. Now go write that into law.

I was going to mention that but I know how much "a certain demographic" shits a brick if you stomp on their circle-jerk. Much like lower IQ animals, if I don't actually say trigger words then they won't clue in. Unfortunately, you did, and now you're getting voted down (as of now).

Communism is just one extreme and and neither extreme is the answer. Just don't mention the S-word around animals that have been "conditioned" by their masters.

For now I'm going for a W-A-L-K. :)

You trade pre-existing support now for death panels later. Have fun. I hope you have a big appetite, because I have a feeling you're going to be eating those words about your "new and improved" healthcare in a few short years.

Ditto for net neutrality should sheep like you have your way.

This is why NEW ideas have such a hard time gaining traction. Save for the fact this isn't a NEW idea. It has been implemented successfully in basically all other modern industrial nations. This is like arguing the superiority of communism after the fall of communism (hopefully the irony of that example sets off the trolls, hahahha).
