Back in 2019 we challenged ourselves to build an all-flash version of Lumaforge's Jellyfish hard drive-based video editing server for the SAME price. We succeed, but we've always wondered, what if we went for feature and hardware parity, how much could be saved? The answer might shock you.

    Noah OrtizNoah Ortiz4 日 前
  • I have a question why did you use a /24 and waste 252 addresses? Wouldn’t it have been more efficient to use /30s or subsets that only have 2 host addresses for point to point links? I’m a network nerd and I have some Channel To Channel networks which use SDLC and I use /30 subnets on those. Just some background on that the Channel To Channel adapter is a way to couple 2 mainframe systems together so I’m using that to couple my Guest OS to the TCPIP service machine on zVM to provide networking to the Guest OS that is non-QDIO compliant otherwise I would use a Vswitch. I really enjoy your videos and maybe you can do a collaboration and help our local college out with a problem we have? Let me know! Kind regards, Vincent

    Vincent Frederick ManzoVincent Frederick Manzo4 日 前
  • Instead of using 10-series IP addresses, why not use the APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) subnet? One day, people will use APIPA. 🙄

  • Flawlist: - No use of Special Allocation Classes (Tiered and metadata storage SSD's) - Not using Intel Optane for SLOG/L2ARC for that budget - Too much L2ARC (although that can be debated) on a too slow SSD. Shame...

    Nope NonameNope Noname4 日 前
  • SLOG is NOT a write cache. Even so with 10gb*10, max you would use is about half a terrabyte (5*10*10), and thats pushing it already.

  • Im sure you can even pay an IT guy to do it but if i was just an average joe who needs raid storage, this whole process would seem like a nightmare to me. I guess if you're rich enough then ya a jellyfish works. I definitely am above average with tech but raid storage has always looked so daunting but not enough for me at least to pay 40,000 extra dollars instead of just figuring it out myself. Network cards and switches still confuse me.
