Am I mis-reading this?
"1,008 rack units, was fitted with 1,300 disk drives"
So 1008 rack units, assuming they were mounted in standard 48u racks, this would amount to 21 seperate racks.. In addition if there were only 1300 drives, that would be less 2 drives were unit..
WTF were they running, 5.25 drives from the 80's???
