As some people know, I’ve been involved in high volume storage for about 30 years … lot of multi-peta byte systems. I generally like shared nothing storage architectures but for pudls I decided to put raid drives on each server. This was causing all sorts of problems keeping things in synch, and driving me a bit crazy (since I had literally random terabytes of data on 3 different servers.
I recently moved to oneblox (company is exablox), which is a networked shared nothing architecture. Initial couple days was a struggle but my ring is working real well right now. I only filled up about 25% of my capacity of drives in the ring, and did that with total crap disk drives(with exablox you put in whatever drives you want and they go into a shared nothing array). I’m now going to put in another 25% of the capacity with decent drives. In a few more weeks I will fill up the entire ring with high quality drives. I’ll publish some numbers when I get things fully working.
I btw really need to get my blog and previs area hooked to Facebook. All my previs and story development stuff is actually available to anyone, but I really haven’t explained how to get it.
Another thing, now that I have basically four main scenes in the painting, I’ll need a female singer that kind of counterposes the Painters songs, to sing inside the painting for the female Model. Possible a adult female and child female singer for two sections btw.
