Great Alternative to Replace 15K SAS Drives [UPDATED] Jared S.
One of the most expensive things to replace on servers these days are the 2.5" 15K SAS drives. Having many HP ProLiant servers at my place of employment, getting these drives from HP is a pricy thing for the average small business. Thanks to some clever work by my company's System Administrator, we found a great alternative if you don't care to or do not have warranty coverage for your servers.

What To Do With These Amazon Gift Cards Jared S.
I am a hoarder much like anyone else. I have a lot of stuff in my house that needs to be sorted through and probably recycled, sold or thrown out.

To offset the costs and to use SkyDrive even more, I am using SkyDrive to host my assets from now on.
