We’ve learned there will also be a unified component made available for G-line systems to provide a NAS function. It will have an FPGA for hardware acceleration, and it will feature HNAS running inside a VM – a very light, container-like VM under HDS’s own hypervisor. In the summer of 2001, I began consulting for a travel company in North Yorkshire. A very innovative company, but nothing all that unusual about it in a mechanical sense: a 70-or-so-seat call centre, finance department, sales and marketing people, and the IT department hidden nicely away where people couldn’t just casually drop in to ask us idiotic questions. One autumn morning, I drove into the car park and couldn’t fail to spot the two socking big orange metal sheds that had appeared outside the loading bay since I’d left the previous week.“Oh, they’re the generators,” I was told by the IT development manager as I made us both a cup of tea. “We have them every winter as the power supply can be a bit wobbly.” We ambled down and he showed me the permanent power connectors in the wall of the building: sure enough, each year a man in a truck would rock up, drop off two generators, plug ‘em in, run some tests and clear off until the next spring. It’s worth noting at this point that the generators were an addition to the existing power protection, which was a big UPS in the server room and a smaller one under every desk powering each user’s PC. (Incidentally, they also had a couple of four-wheel-drive vehicles that could get through the snow to pick up snowed-in staff members).

Wind forward to the start of April 2015 and a fire beneath the streets of Holborn in Central London: an electrucal fault in Victorian-era tunnels around Kingsway damaged an eight-inch gas main that ruptured and erupted, causing a fire that lasted 36 hours.Main roads and side streets were shut down and patrolled by rather twitchy police sporting high-viz jackets, creating a blockade that rendered buildings inaccessible, while theatres and businesses were closed after the power was turned off.The streets around Holborn and Covent Garden quickly became crammed full of massive generators, deposited by huge lorries wiggling through the narrow lanes bringing in yet-more Watts in a box. And despite what seemed like a huge infusion of temporary power, it was insufficient for more than basic operations and businesses in this relatively small but high-density fall-out zone remained dark.Sometimes you just have to say “no”. Could the big public venues such as theatres have kept on trading with cunning use of generators and replacement power? To be honest, it’s unlikely, because it’s simply uneconomic: in a city like London where space – even underground – is scarce, it would be unrealistic for a big theatre to fit in a generator, and the cost of buying and maintaining a unit with sufficient capacity would be disproportionate to the amount it’d be used. Add to this the safety issues (it’s all very well having the lights on in the theatre but it’s a safety problem when you kick the punters out at 22:30 and the streetlights are all dead) and there’s really not a lot you can do.

But what about normal businesses? The same can’t be said for more traditional businesses, though, and particularly those that work during the day. We’ve written a lot recently about the benefits of putting your core systems and applications in a data centre rather than the office – not just because of the risk of a freak occurrence like the London power outage, but also because of more normal problems (one never quite knows whether the company on the floor above you is about to catch fire and drown your world with its sprinklers, for example, or whether someone’s going to put a digger through your phone lines). I’ve worked for businesses whose IT directors twitch visibly when anyone suggests locating a system on-premise rather than in a data centre, and that tendency has rubbed off on me over the years.Moving kit to a data centre isn’t the whole story, though, because as our friends in London have discovered lately, you still need the people in your organisation to be able to use them. Which they can’t do if they can’t get to the office, or if the office is dark and quiet.

A US federal judge has rejected convicted Silk Road kingpin Ross Ulbricht’s request for a new trial, despite his attorneys’ claims of misdeeds on the part of government agents and prosecutors.The evidence of Ulbricht’s guilt was, in all respects, overwhelming, an unsympathetic District Judge Katherine Forrest wrote in a Monday ruling [PDF]. It went unrebutted.Joshua Dratel, Ulbricht’s lead attorney, had argued that the reason his defense was so lacking was because the government had left him with no time to adequately prepare. What he really meant is that he was left scrambling to come up with a new strategy after the court rejected his original line of argument.Dratel spent the early part of Ulbricht’s trial trying to construct a bizarre defense in which he claimed Ulbricht, 30, was merely a fall guy for shadowy third parties. The true mastermind behind Silk Road, he alleged, was Mt Gox founder Mark Karpeles (a charge that Karpeles has categorically denied).

Prosecutors objected to this tactic midway into Dratel’s presentation, arguing that it relied on testimony that amounted to hearsay and hunches, rather than witnesses’ empirical knowledge. Judge Forrest agreed and ruled all such testimony inadmissible – a move that Dratel later complained had eviscerated his defense.When Dratel tried to use the nullification of his evidence on legal grounds as an argument in favor of a new trial for Ulbricht, Judge Forrest wasn’t buying it.There is a necessary disconnect between this defense theory … of what really happened, and the theory on this motion [for a new trial]: that defendant has not had the time or information to develop any defense at all, she wrote in her Monday ruling.Dratel also argued that actions by prosecutors and the court had not given him enough time to gather and present evidence and testimony, further prejudicing his defense. But Judge Forrest found that while prosecutors had complied with all their legal obligations, Dratel himself had not.Defense counsel had failed to timely comply with the appropriate disclosure requirements, and that failure was a tactical choice – not an oversight, the judge wrote. She added that Dratel cannot undo this tactical choice now.

Moreover, she said, there is nothing to suggest that the jury would have arrived at a different verdict had Dratel been able to present the evidence that he now claims he didn’t have time to gather.Special Report Last year, the UK’s Cabinet Office asked an external management consultancy to examine staff morale and high turnover at the Government Digital Service. After interviewing more than 100 civil servants, its scathing confidential analysis described an organisation beset by low morale and run by a “cabal” management of old friends, who bypassed talent in favour of recruiting former associates – while Whitehall viewed GDS as “smug” and “arrogant”.To the outside world, the Cabinet Office’s Government Digital Service is a kind of Disneyland, the theme park that when it opened, billed itself as “the happiest place on Earth”. GDS chief Mike Bracken CBE shared the secret of how to make a happy workplace with an American audience in 2013:Hire the very finest minds in digital and dress them in onesies. Have some fun while you’re doing it. Insist on Hawaiian shirts – absolutely de rigueur. Make sure your insignia is good. And have lots of cake. And make sure there’s stickers. You can’t beat a few stickers for your laptop!
He continued: “These all seem like trivial things, but going against the tide, going against the grain, making sure that it’s a bit of fun, bringing this generation in, is utterly crucial. We started that literally on day one when we started.
