    Petabyte Storage

    The Compellent product is not ZFS based, at all. The Dell Compellent zNAS product uses ZFS. It sits in front of the Compellent Storage Center and provides NFS and CIFS. The most recent is the Dell Compellent FS8600, but does not use any ZFS.

    HP ProLiant MicroServer owners' thread

    Yeah - I have an N36L though. N40L I know has "unofficial" support, but N36L I haven't gotten much solid confirmation.

    Does anyone have Corsair CMX8GX3M1A1333C9 8GB x 2 (for 16GB total) in an N36L with the latest official HP BIOS? (Or any 2 8GB DIMM's working in an N36L or is it just N40L with unofficial 16GB support?)

    Not only did I have to changed my LinkedIn password earlier this week, I now have to change my last.fm password - which is used on lots of other sites. So chances are this weekend a lot of passwords are going to get reset.

    HP ProLiant MicroServer owners' thread

    I used an Intel SRCSASJV as it had connectors on the end. I had a newer Intel card I wanted to use, and it has it's ports vertical by the IO plate. I was hoping someone had tips - but wanted to be sure. I ended up leaving the Intel SRCSASJV in the MicroServer as it worked and didn't feel like...

    HP ProLiant MicroServer owners' thread

    For those of you who have RAID Cards in your MicroServer - are you using one where the SFF-8087 connector is towards the back of the card or the front (back by the IO plate).
