A peek within the ΔV kimono …

What you see below is from a $5400USD list price machine on initial run through, pre-tuning. Please remember that as you look at these numbers. This is less than $1USD per usable GB.

Will be formally introduced/announced soon. You can see one live at ohiolinuxfest this weekend (this exact machine as it turns out).

This is a RAID6 unit. We could go RAID5 and increase performance, though running in a configuration we do not recommend.
