HP's StorageWorks XP12000 is bulletproof -- they checked

If you've been looking for a server solution that can stand up to the odd gun fight or three (haven't we all?), HP has just the thing for you. See, they grew tired of just tossing around the term "bulletproof" for their half-million dollar StorageWorks XP12000, and decided they'd pop a .308 caliber bullet through it to prove their point. They fired up the server and got it pumping out a few video streams, and then shot it clean through while the server kept on streaming, thanks to a little bit of server redundancy. The bullet made it through the array and shattered a fish tank on the other side, but HP assures us in their must-see video of the incident that no animals or humans were harmed in the making of this film, so it looks like the goldfish made it out ok -- though we're sure he would've dropped a few frames if they put a bullet through him, the slacker.
