The Machine

The HP Oracle Database Machine, that is. Massive throughput, speeds that cause the time-space continuum to go: Yowza!. Here's a link with a picture over at Kevin Closson's blog. And another link over at the Oracle Exadata blog, another at Mike Ault's blog, and yet one more here. It's big, nearly two million bucks, worth every penny of it, and I'm going to get one to keep track of my video collection.

Opinion: Metered Bandwidth

There is indeed, no free lunch, or at least there hasn't been since some legendary bars of the early 20th century where free lunch was offered....if you bought beer.
