    I voted Yes, but only because I dont see anything wrong with the NDA. Longer term NDAs are more common in my industry now. But I dont think this should be a poll, this should be up to your lawyer if the risk are out weighed by the reward.

    Does a OS reboot affect the PSU?

    Long story short I am trying to run 3-4 mobos off of a single power supply (Intel Avaton C2550s so not very much power draw) They will be ESXi nodes for my traveling test lab. I would really like to be able to reboot them individually if needed without disturbing the other 2-3 boards. But I...

    Interesting cheap JBODs available

    I run one into my ESXi all in one, OI/napp-it with a pass-through HBA. I have a local and cloud backup to be safe, but haven't seen any issues so far. I currently have 8 WD 1TB blacks in it, my #5 (or #4 if you start with 0) slot is weird to seat (left to right, top to bottom) and the power...

    NetApp Performance - NetApp FAS3240?

    A) Check what MtnDuey posted B) doesnt look like you are using dedupe (you should IMO its one of the top 3 features of a netapp box) C) are your windows shares virtual? or is the FAS handling them? (I assume virtual as I dont see any CIFS traffic on your netapp) I personally prefer the netapp to...

    Looking for something to replace NetApp FAS2020A for VMware storage

    You dont have to dedicate 3 drives for the root vol on a 2240 it can sit in the main agr of data (not best practice but afaik its supported), and depending on your load on the 2020 you have now you may be able to do an active passive. Do the machines besides VDI need flash pool? No snap...

    Power draw limit on molex?

    As far as HDDs go, you get a high amp draw on start up, thats why enterprise level HDD controllers have spin up groups. Once spinning they aren't too bad. That is the only time I have ever had an issue with a PSU/wiring get pissed. I am assuming that you aren't going to have a double digit...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Just picked up a HP DL360 G6, planning on doing an all in one setup with a Norco shelf. Would it be unwise of me to use Engineering sample CPUs for this? Just looking in places to save some $$ and RAM and HBA aren't one of them, so I am hoping the CPUs could be?
