This post starts as a puff for Sun’s Storage Solution and segues to a crack at Digg. Glenn Brunnette pointed this Youtube Video out to me, with Brendan Gregg shouting at a disk unit.
which struck me as rather cool in that it demonstrates the awesome advantage of the FISHworks analytics i.e. the management software that comes with Sun’s Unified Storage systems. Its such a great way of seeing the power of the software I decided to bookmark it on del.icio.us and digg it, I glad to see I am not the first. I was, however, sad to see that the Digg conversation was so trivial, amusingly focused on the effects of shouting at computers, which we’ve all done, and less so about the track record of the person who submitted the story to Digg.
Has Digg jumped the shark?
