Transferring Files

I learned something interesting today – if you have to choose between transferring files between two machines via a flash drive or a gigabit network, choose the latter. The transfer speeds are blazingly fast on a gigabit network. I managed to move a bunch of DVD isos across the network at speeds of about 250Mbps. Flash drives generally transfer at a tenth of the speed.

Oh yes, I’m playing with a bunch of servers at work these days – ones that cost the price of a car and sound like jet planes taking off whenever they are powered up. Vrroooom!
