Welcome to IWETHEY!

New anyone familiar with www.liferay.com?
wondering what if any value it has and a 10 cent tour of what it really does. The site is fluff.

New No info yet, but we're deploying it now.
Actually, conslutants hired by the big pill company in Indiana that bought us are deploying it.

I've seen it and I'm scheduled for admin training in a couple weeks. Then I've got to go to Chicago in July for serious admin training (unless I can order a new direct report coming in 6/9 to go in my place - I swore I wouldn't return to Chicago until they re-opened Meigs and thusfar haven't). It's supports portlets and does site/content management. From the little I've seen of the way the conslutants are using it, it doesn't appear to do anything that drupal or wordpress can't do (sans java portlet support, of course). That may be an unfair characterization, it's the first time the conslutants have used it themselves and to my knowledge, no one there has ever attended training. This is one of those seagull projects.

If you're interested, after I go through training, I'll be happy to update you.
New no, I have 2 days to get serious in depth knowledge of it
lot of reading to do

New Wow. I thought firedrills like that only happened here. ;-) Good luck!
New Sorry I couldn't help.
New Holy Smokes.
So, our liferay server has a page (or portlet, or whatever) that does "document management." We have these report pdf files we distribute. When liferay creates the "page preview" files (one file for each page encountered in the pdf file) the storage consumption goes through the roof. 533M of pdf files results in 62G of "preview" files. These are only the POC files. Production will be far, far greater. Going to need a huge augmentation to my storage network.
New Progress!!1 :-/ Good luck.
New enjoy :-)

New Interesting design decision.
Obviously built around the assumption that lots of online storage is way way way cheaper than processing power.

New It's not a bad assumption
New True.
New Reminds me of the "bandwidth of a station wagon" ...

Also, how fast are tape libraries these days?



ICRAR:

A view inside the 6500 slot robotic tape library operated operated by iVEC. The StorageTek SL850 library is currently being updated with higher capacity tape drives which will allow for storage of up to 32.5 PB of uncompressed data.


Neat stuff.

Cheers,

New ..along with another conundrum-set
Whereas wisdom, within its many colorful definitions, is ~ about the distilling of very-Much (information?) into unadulterated pithiness, we're now collecting/or contemplating a (Cantorian small-infinity of) sorta-information (of an unpredictable data-set size or even 'scope') ...

All in hopes that, parceled out to legions of vastly-trained info-mungers-in-parallel, who just might do some syntheses (of the scale that no one analyst could even skim, in a dozen lifetimes of 10-hour daily doses.)
Does not the project sound already like a sort which Dante had outlined (for its very-own multi-level H.Q.: Hell 2.0 beta?)

My brain hurts already. I don't think our species can Do this one. (Even with a googol of Inspirational Posters to get each minion up/into the saddle ... for those consecutive munging-days ... forever.)



The Over-quantized life becomes yet another random liff, an inverse of the Tardis? its exterior--The Conceptâ„¢--very large in appearance, whilst the interior is claustrophobic.

My two peta-cents. ;^>
New Not to worry
Fifty years from now, most of the creative intellectual output from 1980-2020 will be lost to history as magnetic media deteriorate and file formats are discarded.
