    Samsung 860DCT SSD Review Discussion

    So at 40,000 iops, the Toshiba HK4R does both 3000 ms and ~100 ms latency? ()

    Samsung 860DCT SSD Review Discussion

    I have but one question. How is there a fish hook on the graphs?
  3. Interesting concept, but what about those people with a sealed server room(normally using a split duct unit)? What's out there that's server room class with both intake and exhaust ducts?
  4. In this case, since it's a vmware esxi server there's no option for software raid. The Intel P3710 pcie card is on their HCL, but the idea of putting a single card in makes me nervous, even though it's faster than the hardware raid10 I'd be putting in.
  5. I was so hopeful there for a minute that you'd found a way. I'm looking at a 6028R, with a E5-2698 v3 in it (it's cheaper to go stupid high core count than put a second cpu in, thanks to Oracle's stupidity with vmware and DB licensing), and was disappointed there doesn't seem to be any NVMe hardware raid options out there.
  6. What are you using for RAID on this when you're using the NVMe slots?

    Seagate Archive HDD Review (8TB) Discussion

    How many IOPS do you get out of a 1.44 mb floppy drive?
  8. How does one of these compared to a now-obsolete 3ware 9750? Biggest thing holding me back from switching off 3ware is the migration times.

    How bad is it?

    12k bad sectors is pretty high, along with the 192 unfixed ones. Hopefully you're not running RAID5. I replace my own drives before they get that high.

    LSI 9260, 9266 and 9271 for home server

    Figured as much, which is even more amusing since the 9750 is based on one of the LSI cards

    LSI 9260, 9266 and 9271 for home server

    There's no plug and play compatibility between arrays on the 3ware 9750 and any of the LSI units, right?
  12. How's the UI this time around? The GS752TP had a .. plodding UI to put it nicely.
  13. I have a couple meridian voicemail systems that use 850 or 1200 meg hard drives.. and os/2. Not sure which is older, SMART or the hard drive. We've been replacing the hard drives with 2GB CF cards on a CF to IDE adapter as we run across them.

    Supermicro array questions

    Found my other drive, and so either WD quality control has gone downhill, or my enclosure blinks the red light twice for Hot Spare.

    Supermicro array questions

    Blue for activity, solid red for "you should have replaced me a week ago" and apparently blinking red is "either panic, or this is your hot spare" The RE is SATA. It's even on the 3ware HCL. If I can find it, I'll put my other spare drive in and see what it does.
