It's not all "maanskyn en rose" running a company and having to make sure you always have enough cash flowing in to cover salaries and other expenses. Your staff are your first priority and you work in the hope that "one day" you'll be able to give yourself a raise (never mind bonuses). I haven't had a raise in the last 3 years and I've never in my life experienced the mythical "bonus". So, in short, it is very tempting having a large player in the industry showing interest in us and I can then get back to focusing on what I'm really good at - building software, frameworks and tools for developers to do their jobs better.
    That does sound like a win-win. I'm lucky (?) enough to also work for a small company, we have shitloads of work, but constant cashflow issues, and with me wanting to start my own company some day, I'm keeping a close eye on these sort of problems and how to deal with them (or not to deal with them). Seeing the directors and some of the senior guys here forego salaries every now and then does put the romantic side of running your own business into perspective.

    So ja, someone taking care of the marketing and feeding you work while you maintain some autonomy sounds wonderful.

A high staff turnover is the death of any small company.
    I think that's our biggest problem. About 50% of the engineers has less than 5 years here. It's beginning to look up now, where more than 80% has more than 2 years, but I'm also sensing some turnover coming in the next 6 months.

    Fully agree with this approach you can teach a monkey how to code, but you cant teach a monkey to love code and want to learn more

    You should stop trying to teach monkeys to code.

    Yeah, it's a question that only a person that works as a Storage Administrator/Engineer will know exactly how to answer, however we weren't looking for a specific right or wrong answer, but more specifically an answer that makes sense.

    The answer BTW :

    Connect Server to SAN Fabric; At least 1 port on each HBA connected to Fabric A and the other to Fabric B; Determine the WWNN and WWPN for the HBAs. Create an initiator group, add the WWPNs of the HBAs to the initiator group. Create the 40GB LUN with a LUN ID of 0, add the LUN to the initiator group. Do the zone configuration on the SAN switches for Fabric A and B in order for the HBAs to speak to the SAN. Boot the OS, detect LUN 0, install the OS on device presented as LUN 0

    That's nearly exactly what I said.
