Abstract: If all storage array vendors buy disk drives from the same small set of disk manufacturers then why is there such a big reliability gap between storage vendors? While excellent work has revealed the reality of failure rates and types, the focus has merely been on ”what” happens when components fail. There is very little to describe “why” subsystems fail and “why” some vendors produce exceedingly reliable subsystems while others fall drastically short. Please email: email@example.com and request a .pdf copy of the “If Disk” WP. We think you will find this has solid technology pointers you should be aware of.
Sadly, an industry colleague is closing their doors. They have asked us to find new homes for several Nexsan SATABeasts that still have 2 full years remaining on warranty. We picked up the lot. Some are earmarked for existing customers. We’ve got a couple extra, but they are going pretty quickly as all are priced at under $20,000. (note: these sold out quickly, we’ll post next time we have more)
Here are some details ~ 14 – 21 TB per box, fibre channel and iSCSI enabled, dual controllers, 2 years remaining on warranty.
