Big-Time Server Fail
Symantec found a bold way to show just how well it can recover data. It bought a server rack weighing a quarter ton, loaded the thing up with Red Hat Linux and Solaris, and built an Oracle database. A second server was built as backup.
The working server was hauled to the top of an 18-story building and, like Kramer's oil bladder, unceremoniously dropped over the side
Despite the trauma, the first server smoothly failed over to the second -- a better outcome than the Kramer bladder, which landed on Jerry's girlfriend.
Here's what it looked like falling.
