Samuel J. Coco, senior Unix administrator for the Army Research Laboratory at Adelphi, Md., is always willing to listen to ideas on storage management. With the lab getting a terabyte of new data every night, he said, he's interested in finding ways to borrow computing power from other groups and in developing an enterprisewide backup plan.
