Welcome to Stupid Storage!

The storage industry has suffered from boring meetings, concepts, naming conventions and best practices - and I feel that a groundbreaking change is required - to lighten up the storage and backup administrators life.

This is how Stupid Storage came to life...

Post your storage jokes, anecdotes and funny pictures and movies!

Vendors and Product Names

As a start, let me share some alternative company and product names that can lighten up any boring storage project status meetings:

ADIC = Aay-(you)-Dick! Tape Library

EMC = Evil Machine Company
EMC = Extra Mirroring Company
EMC DMX = Don't Mind (the) eXtra cost...

HDS = Horrible Disk Solutions
HDS FlashCopy = HDS FlashCrappy
HDS TrueCopy = HDS TrueCoffee

NetApp = NetCrap
NetApp SnapVault = NetApp SnapFault. You can use this in backup team meetings, for example: "I didn't stop any backups! It's all his SnapFault!"
