Had neglected to mention this, but all of the day job’s units support 4TB drives. This means you can get 4U goodness up to 96TB, 5U goodness up to 192TB, and very soon (and we’ll start taking early orders for it) 4U with up to (about) 1/4 PB directly coupled to a very fast computer, with incredible amounts of IO and network bandwidth. Full 42U rack with about 2.5PB raw, and about 40GB/s sustained streaming write, and 60GB/s sustained streaming read performance in aggregate.
We’ve sold a few of these to a number of customers already. [Contact me](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=[Request for information] new large JackRabbit) offline if you want more information or a quote.
You’ll see more announcements pre-SC12.
Yeah, we are ridiculously busy.
