comment Juniper VPN client hardware?
Well company policy is usually set by the person who is qualified to assess the risk. Circumventing it can be a fireable offence.

comment What's the maximum theoretical data transfer throughput of NTFS?
The copy function in windows explorer is slow and sends a lot of overhead data back and forth. You can demonstrate that using FTP is much faster for example. That is not NTFS though.

comment Create a folder on a share each time a workstation joins the server 2012 domain
Remote resources are generally user oriented, so it sounds like you are not taking the best approach. Without further info it is impossible to say that for sure though.

comment Agile sysadmin and devops - How to accomplish?
Which is in direct contention with providing reliable services and why devops can sometimes be developers playing operations without understanding. The skill is in finding the right balance between allowing free development and ringfencing change to hide breaks from the user behind staging, redundancy, etc.

I would tend to apply that logic to backups rather than working data though.

comment Mount dell perc (megaraid) partitions on linux box without hardware raid
Hardly a major drawback since the hardware is completely standard and widely available. If needs be you can pick up a Perc5 from ebay for next to nothing, they don't require a Dell machine to run and you can continue on that or simply use it to transfer the data off.

comment What would you do if you realized your email hosting provider could see your passwords?
There is another non technical reason which you have overlooked - for support convenience. Without knowing the password the ISP would not have been able to determine the cause of this breach as a weak password for example. OK so it is not a good idea to store reversible passwords but don't forget that email is forwarded in plain text usually without signatures, it should never be treated as a secure channel anyway.
