You are so wrong it isn't even funny.

We're running app stacks at full line rate on 40GbE using today's hardware. A dual-socket sandy bridge server (I.e. HP DL380) has no problem driving that kind of bandwidth. Look up Intel DPDK or 6Windgate if you want to learn a thing or two.

It's real, it works, and we're getting ready to start 100GbE testing.

Not true.

It's absolutely accepted - and encouraged - to use our company-issued vehicles for personal use, including vacations.

Not all policies are completely draconian.

Now, having said that, modifying the vehicle (i.e. adding a remote starter, changing the radio, installing NOx) is strictly forbidden.

The person who posted this "question" really just needs to buy his own laptop. A MacBook Air would work well for travel. Even at home, I do the same -- work on one machine, personal on the other. Point, set, match.

That's still once too many.

And still one more than I've ever seen of VxFS. I've managed many, many petabytes of VxFS file systems, and never lost so much as a single file to FS corruption.

(even when I had a coworker manage to import the same VxVM disk group on 2 cluster nodes simultaneously and mount the FS in both places...). A little private region editing and I was able to correct the damage.
