The ZFS Device Shuffle

I shot this video/screencast demo thing nine or ten months ago. The audio from the datacenter was terrible. I have been sitting on it and some voice overs that I wasn't pleased with for about 4 months. Today I decided that it was time finally get it published, did another voice over and while it isn't perfect its good enough.


This video was inspired by CSI: Munich I watched it and thought, wait I have an x4500!




Link to ZFS Device Shuffle on Mediacast


Here instead we will try an object embedded quicktime found at Bye Bye Embed, the video above is being served from the all new and improved http://mediacast.sun.com

Edit: I have uploaded an amplified version, it appears that unless you are using good isolation earbuds or have relatively good quality speakers you can't really hear the audio portion. The trial copy of "Sound Studio" I downloaded did a wonderful job of letting me amplify the audio. The audio and video are the same, only the link has changed (It does not appear possible to replace the original content )

While I was at it we just released a new version of mediacast.sun.com (I could never get my login to the old one working). For some reason smugmug is taking 23MB of video and reprocessing it to 94MB. I can download that in about 3 minutes but the size is ridiculous. (No wonder my wife said it took forever to play)

ZFS Device Shuffle Video
(This is the smugmug video, I still like the interface it just isn't quite doing it for me otherwise)

 Edit: A bit of clarity I should go to bed at 02:30 instead of messing with my blog

Edit: SmugMug fixed the encoding issue a long time ago

Comments:

OK, the volume is a bit low comment seems like an understatement if you aren't using in ear headphones or good laptop speakers. I am rendering a new copy with amplified volume (but still low noise).

Sorry about all the edits. The embedded video is much smaller and louder than the smugmug rendered version.

This might be a dumb question, but why is your hand strapped to the ZFS device?
thanks,
Seeley

You mean with the static strap?

To prevent static from possibly frying one of the disks.

The strap I have is also a nice baby blue color, a complement to any admin's wardrobe :)
