HP Bulletproof Storage Works XP12000

HP has a tendency to use gun metaphors when talking about their storage solutions, and the newest one is ‘bulletproof’.

Instead of the wussy technical term for it, they went out and shot a hole clean through a half-million dollar Storageworks XP12000 server while it was running.

The bullet went right through it, but only half way through the fishtank on the other side. That is what you get with .308 rounds, not enough stopping power vs high-end arrays backed by fishtanks.

In either case, they literally proved that their Storageworks arrays will take a bullet while streaming video, never missing a frame.
