As Halloween 2014 will be upon us shortly, I tried to think of a good scary Halloween themed post for this blog, and realized that data storage is not a very scary subject.
So what would be scary to an IT person who’s primary focus is storage? Maybe getting accidentally locked in a data center as the Halon system goes off? Nope, I think they outlawed Halon gas-based fire suppression systems a while back for data centers as there is the possibility of dying as the Oxygen runs out. How about running out of storage capacity at 3 AM during year-end batch processing? Nope, that’s not scary, that’s just stupid planning. Being named as the primary backup administrator for the IRS would be pretty scary, but I wanted something better.
