Our network admin (a LINUX/PHP/open source/anti-IBM type of guy) says,
"If you need additional disk drives for your POWER6 IBM I machine, you
don't need to buy expensive disk drives from IBM.
Just buy some cheap 1-terrabyte Western Digital drives from Egghead,
etc. Their drives will work just fine."

Uh, I think that other drives would not work in this machine.
Your thoughts?
I don't know why I let his outlandish comments get under my skin.
Now I will post a question to IBM tech support and have them
verify/contradict his claim.
Then maybe I will be able to sleep undisturbed.
