Comment Re:Redhat KVM (Score 1) 417

We have a big investment in VMWare at the moment, but will seriously be looking at RedHat Enterprise Virtualization going forward. Their management client is starting to look as good as vCenter and the price is way way way less. We're looking at about a factor or 8 less. So do we want to spend $40,000 for finicky hardware requirements and constant marketing-driven name changes or do we want to pay $5000 to install RHEV on whatever nice servers we have already sitting around. We're going to be voting for the latter.


Survey Shows That Fox News Makes You Less Informed 1352

A survey of American voters by World Public Opinion shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources. One of the most interesting questions was about President Obama's birthplace. 63 percent of Fox viewers believe Obama was not born in the US (or that it is unclear). In 2003 a similar study about the Iraq war showed that Fox viewers were once again less knowledgeable on the subject than average. Let the flame war begin!

Comment $8/GB/year (Score 2, Informative) 420

In a government agency we're charged internally $8/GB/yr for online storage. We have a hot replica ready to come online if the primary goes down for any reason, it's incrementally backed up to tape (using Tivoli) each night and the encrypted weekly tapes are transferred to an offsite location each week.

All that for $8/GB/yr. Supposedly that's the cost-neutral point for them including hardware maintenance, salaries, power, cooling, etc.
