Seem some people have never heard  of  "keep it simple, stupid"    or
"less  is more" ... sounds like a few  people here are falsely propping
up their worth to their employers, making unnecessary BS to justify
their own existence.

My experience of over 20 years of this industry easily shows that those
who try to make complex networks _always_ have far higher fail rates
than those that keep it simple, nearly never have any problems, and when
they do its because the powers failed, the gennies didnt kick in and
UPS's died before engineers got the gennies going. I've also seen most
networks that use SAN's have a far more problems than those using NAS's
- providing you use decent NAS gear like EMC or Netapp :)  Don't evne
think about using a general server as a  NAS.

What you fail to understand is that many highly intelligent, experienced, very able engineers build systems that are as complex and as large as they _need to be_ and just because you don't deal with such large systems doesn't make everyone else wrong. (Okay, I know, some people are proud, and some people do make bad decisions about large complex systems -- but you make the mistake of assuming everyone does.)
