4 TB… Mmmmm…

Today is a good day. I like it when putting together systems just works. My upgrade to 4 TB of online storage went swimmingly well for the Claymark datacenter. Sure it’s easy now… Newegg put their 1 TB WD drives on sale this weekend and I told myself once it hit $99, 4 new ones would make it into my storage system. Used to take 8 or 16 drives to get that much storage…

Any takers on when THAT amount will be filled up? And yes, Joe… It’s one 4 TB file system… Not 4, 1 TB file systems like you put together! Now it’s time to get all that data restored from my backup file server and add in those old drives.. Too many hard drives laying around in my basement for sure…

I also installed Microsoft Windows Longhorn Server 2008 on instead of Windows XP 64-bit. A few days will test how long I keep that system on there.
