Critical Equipment Failure, Resolved

PlaneAs many of you know, about a month ago while flying from Texas to Delaware, our prop governor failed right after taking off from a stop in Tennessee. The plane is now repaired and back in the hangar! Turns out that the prop governor seal wasn’t the only issue. Once that was fixed, my cylinders weren’t firing right and–behold!–there was a hole in one of the pistons. Luckily, the A&P mechanics at the airport where we landed were well-known experts in just these problems. It’s now fixed and I go this week to get the plane.

Which brings me to storage [doesn’t it always!?]. With regular maintenance, most equipment (especially NetApp filers) just keep running along smoothly. But even regular maintenance can’t catch everything, and when something untoward occurs, you need an expert to get to the bottom of it. Just as those A&Ps were known for their engine expertise, Zerowait is known for ours in data storage.

Experience and documentation pay off by building the confidence and the specialized knowledge to handle a difficult situation and know what steps to take to safely and securely solve the immediate problem. In my case, my training kicked in so I could land the plane safely. After that, I relied on the expert A&Ps to figure out the cause and fix it.

Lastly, I find out what steps I need to follow to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Similarly, when we encounter a network or storage issue at Zerowait or with our customers we first ensure the system and data are secure, then we isolate the issue. Using our documentation, specialized knowledge, and experience we get the systems back to stability and serving data reliably.

Problem Found, Emergency Averted!

 

Safe Flying!

Last week I was flying my Cessna from Texas to Delaware and ran into a problem after takeoff from our midpoint stop in Tennessee. After climbing  to 4000 feet, my oil temperature suddenly shot up and oil streaked up the windshield. As a pilot I was trained to quickly look at my instruments, determine what was going on and take corrective action. I leveled off to bring my oil temperature down, ensured the plane was flying safely, checked for nearby places to land if needed, and then contacted Memphis Center with a request to return to the airport we’d just left—it was only about 10-15 minutes away. As we turned around and headed back, the oil temperature dropped into normal range, the cylinders reported normal, and the Memphis Center folks were helpfully calling out alternate airports if I needed one. There was no weather and the plane was flying fine, so we entered the traffic pattern at the airport we’d left, dropped the landing gear, touched down and taxied to the ramp. We were on the ground safely and now it was time to figure out what had gone wrong. There was a small audience gathered. Apparently, the oil had caused quite a trail of smoke as we came in.

There was oil around the propeller, spinner and down the side of the airplane, in addition to the smears on the windshield and cowl. A crowd of people gathered around while I removed my upper cowl. It quickly became obvious that the seal on the propeller governor had failed, allowing oil to escape. The Aircraft and Powerplant Mechanic at the field took off the Propeller Governor to get it rebuilt and we found a rental car and drove the remaining distance to our Delaware office. It was a long day (and night!), and the experience confirmed a lot of what I learned in Pilot training. Flying is still better than driving.

Oh wait. While true, what I meant to say is that expert maintenance and timely upgrades are what keep planes flying! And sometimes, though the Cessna is not yet ready to retire, new equipment can be custom-tailored to your mission.

Stick to Your Knitting

Stick to Your KnittingStick to your knitting is an old English phrase meaning to “concentrate on a familiar area of activity rather than diversify; mind one’s own business” (Google Dictionary). Our customers have come to us for support of their NetApp equipment in some of the most demanding environments for over 20 years, and they have been adding our SimplStor storage hardware to their NetApp environments for over a decade. Why? Because we continue to focus on what we do best: on-premise storage support and sales.

Many of the “Bigs” in the storage business chase the latest hype and change their product lines and business models to match the hype instead of their customer’s needs. They leave their knitting behind and pick up wood-carving AND pottery AND basket-weaving! Meanwhile, their support suffers, and myriad products come out too fast, prone to bugs. Bigs are trapped in this cycle. They can’t help it: Keeping the stock price up pretty much demands they be able to parrot the latest buzz and sell shiny objects. As a privately held company, though, Zerowait can focus on our customer’s needs, optimizing both the performance and longevity of their current storage investment, and assisting them in adding to their storage pool as needed.

Who has a better understanding of your requirements and challenges than you do? At Zerowait we stick to our knitting and provide on premise storage and services that matches your requirements instead of the latest techy fad.

Zerowait provides EOL support for NetApp filers!ONE — Knitting hasn’t gone out of style!

Fashions change, but there will always be sweaters and scarves. They’re basic, like data storage. As you recall, it was not that long ago that NetApp sold you on their on-premise storage. Now they claim that’s old news, push Hybrid Cloud and say the equipment you have is end of life. But is it? Probably not. If you like your on-premise storage Zerowait has the expertise, parts and systems to provide support for the long term.

Fishing for a Storage Solution?

 

Fishing for a Storage Solution 

Last month we were in the Florida Keys fishing for Yellow Tail (a kind of Snapper) and as we were reeling them in the Bull Sharks and Barracudas were chomping off their portion of the fresh catch. Fortunately, they were really biting, and we could afford to lose some of our haul. Plus it was exciting to see. Better yet, filleted and grilled that evening they were delicious. It was a great trip made even better because we had the right captain, equipment, bait, and location to maximize our enjoyment and fishing.

We’ve all experienced the sharks and barracudas in the storage marketplace. Don’t settle for half a fish! With Zerowait’s help to maximize your investment, you can catch your limit of great storage every day.
