When i was last working on power about 5 years ago i set up PowerVM with a number of Power795s, FlashSystem9000s and Storwisev7000s.
It was basically OpenStack on Power connecting directly to the SANs and the HMCs/LPARs and it was fantastic for our environment being able to spin new dev envs in extremely short times as opposed to the normal nonsense. Never got to try to do production loads with it, as i left the company due to manglement being a bunch of jackasses, but it was a valid in-house platform for us anyway.
I get emails from a stupid left-pondian for all sorts of crap. I am in Ireland. Hotel bookings, car bookings, flight bookings, school details, his daughters dance company, etc
For about 3 or so years.
A lof of the time, these contain personal information, most of which if it was me, I wouldnt like out there.
I originally tried to be nice, but the fuc*tard kept doing it. Now I respond to bookings with "I assume my card has been scammed as I did not book this", and to his school groups etc with "Tell the f**king numpty this is supposed to be addressed to to stop using my email." Generally with a reply all as they dont seem to know how to use BCC, and also just to show what a muppet he is.
Actually France has a law where they are allowed charge people that murder their citizens abroad, regardless of the jurisdiction.
Actually, while trying to find the name, I found it isnt murder, it is any crime!
"Under France's Napoleonic Code, prosecutions can be taken against individuals who are not within the French jurisdiction and for alleged offences which occurred overseas."
I am not a dog guy. Actually I pretty much disliked dogs for a long time.
That is until my housemate got a Staffie. Pure bred. And she is one of the most relaxed, laid back animal I have ever met. She never barks, unless it as birds, or Nemesis [A dog across the road, that barks a lot. Seems she is sick of him :P]
There was a motherboard capacitor issue back around then as well where the caps has some dodgy industrial espionage, china clones of chemical formulae, and Taiwan manufactures buying up cheap knockoff electrolyte solvent that was missing some additives that stopped the issue.
We had a security office go to a DC to run vulnerability scanning. This was the normal [terrible] process. He plugged his laptop with nessus in running as a DHCP server, and took down the enitre network, including a 60TB oracle db. Fun times!
That ridiculously stupid process was changed very shortly after that.
Bwahahahahahahaa! Make use of that whilst it lasts! My last employer banned the practice of "Amazon-to-work" after somebody ordered a washing machine, which caused more than a certain amount of difficulty in the post room of a large administrative office.
Ha. Amateurs. Previous company banned the practice of "packages to work" because of two reasons.
#1 Someone had a piano delivered to reception.
#2 The moronic security guards were signing for everything that came in, and the company got hit with 10K+ in import and customs duties at the end of the year.
Before I left the Unix, and primarily AIX, world behind a few months ago I had been playing around with PowerVC. It was basically Openstack implementation with AIX/Power systems, and included interfaces for the v7000 SANs and Flash840 untis we had.
Spinning up images and so forth was pretty easy, once you had a recorded good state. It was kind of like on premises-cloudy stuff.
I would have thought that they would have just expanded on that?
How about IBMs FlashSystem 840 and their v7000. You hook the FS840 in, zone it all up, and the v7000 manages it as an external device, but does all the heavy lifting.
I just migrated from T1 15000 RPM disks onto Flash, using the built in vdisk mirroring. Left the flash as secondary mirror for a bit, then promoted to primary mirror. Obviously we are seeing read speed increases etc, and when we remove the T1 mirror we should see the full AFA throughput gains.

And this is why you should be using cluster exchange servers or at least have the datastores on a SAN so another server can be rolled in....
>Also, did he really say you lose ALL progress if you quit the game?
I remember that in "Steel Batalion" on the old xbox. If your mech suffers catastrophic damage, you have to smash the eject button or your character dies, and it wiped all your saves.....
The eject button was under a plastic cover as well, so you didnt hit it accidentally :P
>particularly in regard to Linux which the company only accommodates on 'one' laptop (no desktops or pre-install servers)
Ill disagree with this. In previous jobs [we don't use Dell here], I firmly remember being able to get them with RedHat, as far back [and probably further] as the 2650 circa 2004. From what I remember the 2550 was available in 2001 with RedHat also, but may be wrong on that one.
A quick look at a R415 shows various licensing options for SLES 10&11 RHEL for HPC and RHEL 6.3
