Ohh yeah.

Actually, in our case, it was slightly better:
- we wanted 1TB of disk.
- we wanted to be able to  dump the full 8GB memory  of the O2K to the
  disk in around 10 seconds.
- we wanted to buy everything to SGI (fibre channel raid array, disks,
  everything).

So the SGI dudes  were able to  choose solutions known to work instead
of having to cope with existing hardware :-)

  OG.
