Welcome to the site, my name is Jeff and I have been working in the IT field since the early 90's. Most of what I post here is related to work that I do for the various companies that I have worked for over the years. Please feel free to look around ask questions or post comments (if available).

  • Windows 7 RTM!

    So this is not really related to work, but Windows 7 RTM’d the other day and both my Technet Subscription and Windows 7 Beta downloads became available today! I’ve been running Windows 7 since Beta 1 on my personal laptop a Toshiba Satellite L25, so I’m really looking forward to the RTM. While it does mean another wipe and reload at least all the debugging stuff will be gone so I should see a bit of a performance boost!

    Two weeks ago the new storage array arrived. We have moved from Fibre Channel to iSCSI almost exclusively because of cost. At the rate at which our existing SAN appears to be growing we are unable to afford to add storage to it. An iSCSI SAN provides a much more affordable solution for our storage needs.

  • iSCSI Solutions

    iSCSI provides a cost-effective, unified method for accessing storage from various vendors. My example is an old free-standing Compaq Drive array and a rack mounted Dell Drive array. Both of these attach to the head server via regular SCSI. Keep in mind that the local connections to the data doesn’t matter, they could be external SAS enclosures or SATA drives, the “SCSI” part of iSCSI is an over the network thing and not a local requirement thing.
