Tech Chop Episode 7– Home Grown SAN Solutions

I know it’s been a few months since I released an episode of Tech Chop. I have seriously been slacking in that department. After the last one, I ran out and got a bunch of new equipment including a camera, lighting set and a portable collapsible green/blue screen. Then they sat around in the garage for a while.

A lot of that has to do with me changing jobs a few months ago. I took over the IT department for a small company in La Jolla California, and getting everything up to speed there has taken up a lot of my time. Some of the things I’ve done for them was virtualize the servers at the home office using Xen Server, moved data centers, and built them a 20TB redundant SAN using Ubuntu. That’s just to name a few.

The best thing though was building the SAN, and I thought I would do a Tech Chop on the options I explored in the open source world. Oh yeah, and I have a new background! Check it out!


The software I mention in the video are:

If you’ve followed along for a while, you know that I found the IET on Ubuntu option to be the best choice by far!
