NAS, openfiler, rbuilder, rpath, SAN, Wii
I hope all you geeks and nerds and people who generally like hi tech toys got all that you wanted for Christmas.
I know that I did. I got a 1TB external drive that I can use to back up all of my family’s computers on the server. I’ll probably create a virtual host using the rpath Openfiler NAS/SAN appliance for the virtual machine image. If you’ve never visited rpath you should give them a look. They have all kinds of appliance images for different makes of virtual machines. Most of these are located on a subweb of rpath called rbuilder.
On rbuilder you can find lots of information about the virtual applicance that you want to download. If you are unsure of which image file that you need for an appliance they have a list that explains how each image installs and under what conditions it should be installed. All in one paragraph and in plain english. Very nice!
I also got a Wii. Well actually it is for my daughter and I. We got Wii Sports, Wii Fit and Wii music. I never new that this gaming system could be so much fun!. We play it everyday and are always finding new things to do on it. If you’ve never tried the Wii you should get one. You won’t be sorry!
I need to get busy setting up my new external drive and virtual machine. Merry Christmas everyone!
