HP has a tendency to use gun metaphors when talking about their storage solutions, and the newest one is "bulletproof." So, they went and shot a .308 Win rifle bullet clean through a half-million dollar Storageworks XP12000 server. While it was running.

The bullet went right through it, but only half way through the fishtank on the other side. That is what you get with .308 rounds - not enough stopping power vs high-end storage arrays backed by fishtanks. In either case, they proved that their Storageworks arrays can literally take a bullet while streaming video, and never miss a frame.
