RAID for dogs

November 1, 2004

From the IM logs:

Joyce: How does MySQL work over 6 physical disks?

SurlySysadmin: RAID

Joyce: Oh right. All that striping stuff

SurlySysadmin: yep

SurlySysadmin: striping is your friend

Joyce: I usually tune out when you start talking about that

Joyce : blah blah blah striping Ginger blah blah

SurlySysadmin: talking to developers about hardware is always good for a laugh
