Storage 7000 · This is cer­tain­ly our biggest an­nounce­ment of the year so far; just pos­si­bly the biggest since I showed up here in 2004. The of­fi­cial name is the “Sun Stor­age 7000” and there are three sys­tems in the line-up. As usu­al, the re­al ac­tu­al tech­nol­o­gy news is in the blogs; the hub is at the Stor­age News blog, but I’d start with the co-conspirators: Bryan Cantrill’s Fish­work­s: Now it can be told and Mike Shapiro’s In­tro­duc­ing the Sun Stor­age 7000 Series. I have some opin­ions too ...
Time Machine Blues · We have a ter­abyte Time Cap­sule which backs up Lauren’s MacBook and mine, and ba­si­cal­ly, it work­s; I’ve al­ready re­cov­ered from one nasty disk blow-up and a cou­ple of “error be­tween key­board and chair” da­ta loss events. But the cost is be­com­ing very high; it seems like when­ev­er I’m on the home net­work, it’s end­less­ly ei­ther “Preparing Backup” or “Finishing Backup”, to the ac­com­pa­ni­ment of pump­ing fan­s. And it makes sus­pend/re­sume prob­lem­at­ic, too; there seem sev­er­al points in the Time Ma­chine work cy­cle where, if you sus­pend, and if you have password-to-wakeup on (as ev­ery­one should), you’re look­ing at the end­less beach­bal­l. I think I’m not the on­ly one, based on the on­line rum­bles.
