Excerpt from a meeting yesterday:

"IBM now has the VSC that wraps around multiple clustered SVCs providing virtualization of the XIV, V7K and FS840. The FS840 is completely built on FPGA technology utilizing ASIC to provide a purpose built architecture driving latency to microseconds and proving the highest IOPS. We support FC, IB, FCoE, and iSCSI via the SVC and IB and FC directly."

I realized that I completely understood what had just been said, guess I am full Geek now. Over half of understanding a technology is understanding its verbiage, in this case its acronyms. I realized that if I was talking to someone on my cell phone and said this, 95% of the people around me would think I was channeling Robin Williams from the movie "Good Morning Vietnam!" with his famous acronym speak when talking about the visit of the vice president. If you haven't heard it, I am sure it is on YouTube or available somewhere on line. Here it is written but it just isn't as funny:

:Adrian Cronauer: Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.

Anyway, hope you can all LOL and don't have a SHTF moment anytime soon.
