  2. At the center of the TBS-453DX is an Intel Celeron J4105 quad-core 1.5 GHz processor (burst up to 2.5 GHz) and up to 8GB of DDR4 memory. Though the M.2 2280 SATA 6Gb/s SSDs must be purchased separately, QNAP has made accessing, installing and maintaining the RAM and SSDs very easy. The TBS-453DX also features QNAP’s new Cloud Gateway service, allowing users to mount over 20 cloud storage services for efficient file storage, backup, and recovery. With CacheMount and VJBOD Cloud, files on the cloud can be locally cached in TBS-453DX’s CacheMount Cache Volume. This also enables users to access and work with frequently-used files at a very low latency. Moreover, QNAP indicates that TBS-453DX users leverage SSD extra over-provisioning even further to allocate SSD additional OP space (from 1% to 60%) for enhanced SSD random write speeds and lifespan.

  7. I am not quite sure what the question is as the t32C is based on the Raspberry Pi 3B+ not the Pi Zero. Compared to the Pi Zero the Pi 3B+ has four cores, 4 USB, 1GB RAM, 4 USB ports, and built in wireless. Please keep an eye on as we are working on getting a Atrust t32C in the lab for a full review.
  8. So I've been using an Areca 1880ix card for some time for two RAID 6 arrays I use for some huge DAS needs. I've dealt with the normal issues of a drive dropping offline or failing plenty of times. However, today I come in to find a rather odd situation. I've got 16x 4Tb HGST drives in an external enclosure connected to the card. This morning I come in to find that 12 of the 16 are showing as 0Mb size and as "failed". I took out and tested some of the "failed" drives on another system and they're perfectly fine. No hard drive issues at all. Then I was thinking that perhaps the enclosure (which uses SAS multipliers) had failed. So just to test I used the "set failed disk to active" option on one of the drives and sure enough it now shows correct size and ID. So the enclosure must be fine too. So at this point it seems that all the hardware is perfectly fine, but the controller thinks that 12 drives are failed when they're not. I've got about 30Tb of data on this thing. None of it doesn't exist somewhere else, but it'd save me a ton of time if I can get this array to go back online. I'm just not sure how to proceed here. I see that the "failed drive" which I Activated now shows as free and not as a part of the RAID set anymore so it looks like it got kicked out of the RAID set when I reactivate it (good thing it's RAID 6 and I can afford to lose a disk or two). So my question is, how do I get this thing to realize that the other 11 disks are actually still good and try to go back online?
  9. I'm more interested in performance and reliability than price. That said, competition is generally good for prices...
  10. Thanks for your input. Given that I will be using an adapter for the new thunderbolt storage unit (I don’t have TB3 only TB2) I may first want to see how my Mac Mini handles the device first. The big features of a NAS I likely don’t need (I have a separate device running vms, most of my data is iTunes based so Plex isn’t a big deal). Likewise my main cloud backup solution CrashPlan doesn’t formally support NAS at all( I can map it as a network drive and it can try and back that up to the cloud but they word and frame the doc like I should not do it) so going all NAS isn’t an option. I may end up getting another DAS solution and make it the offsite backup and maybe buy a large external drive I can use to move data site to site.
  11. NAS options are going to be more feature filled, have standalone storage options rivaling more DAS offerings and allow connectivity into things like Glacier, etc. To match the speed of a DAS though you'd need to work in 10Gb which makes it a bit more expensive. If you don't exceed 100MB/s though you may not even notice a difference. So it comes down to how to use the storage, since it will be the defining element in which direction to go.
  12. It's because this is Lexar, well the new Lexar not Micron Lexar. We haven't worked very closely with them since the acquisition.
  13. It may be the solution to protect the NAND, like the hybrid drives of years past. For more end users, this should be a very good drive that's not terribly expensive.
  14. It is kind of funny that Toshiba on HDD was at least a year behind and whoosh, game on.
  15. Thinking about this, it puts pressure on Seagate to intro HAMR at 20TB. That, or release 16TB HAMR below Toshiba's price. Toshiba not only scooped Seagate on size, they got to market faster. Seagate will have to give consumers a reason to switch.

    If it's the same guy who program firmware and benchmark the results it's sure all next WD HDD are ready for trash ! A company who manufacture HDD since so many years...

    It's that their level 3 support ? After reviewing the data provided from IOPing, there seems to be some very high CCTs (>2 seconds). While IOPing can measure CCTs, we don’t use this benchmark as we focus more on more prevalent benchmarks such as PCMark, CDM, HDTune, IOMeter, etc. For PCMark Vantage, the current model is ~5% higher in overall storage score. The subset score for gaming is ~10% higher than the earlier model. IOMeter testing through various queue depths and block sizes from 4K to 128K shows a significant increase in throughput in sequential writes and reads of >90MiB/s. Random Read IO/s increased from ~5-10% throughout the various queue depths as well and Random Writes showed much more than this. With the previously mentioned high CCTs, this could be indicative of either a suspect HDD, Host configuration and/or overhead, or other. In short, all validation testing shows that the current Black model meets or exceeds all design criteria for performance with noticeable improvements over previous generations. Again, we always appreciate seeing the test methodologies and results from end users for comparison to our own, in this instance, we don’t see any issue in HDD capabilities.

    Intel Announced Optane Memory H10

    I wonder how this will shake out compared to other QLC drives, most of which seem to do a good-sized pseudo-SLC cache...
  19. Any more specs on the SSDs? They smell like typical SM2263 units but everywhere I've looked seems to be light on details.
  20. Lexar has released a new family of M.2 SSDs with various interfaces for the end users needs. For the mainstream users that want good performance but don’t need ultra high performance, Lexar introduced the NM200 line that leverages the SATA interface. Users can expect to see speeds as high as 550MB/s read and 510MB/s, which should meet most day-to-day needs including faster speed for boot ups, shut downs and every application in between. Lexar Releases New M.2 Line & A 1TB SD Card
  21. OpenEdge is part of the Baidu Cloud that was updated in September to include AI, Big Data, and Cloud Computing. OpenEdge is the local package component of the company’s commercial software product, Baidu Intelligent Edge (BIE). According to Baidu, BIE also consists of a cloud-based management suite that provides functions to manage the edge nodes, the edge apps, and the resources such as certification, password, and program code.

  23. Optane has brought about new levels of performance and very low latency. The biggest drawback is the low capacity. Another recently launched technology of Intel’s is QLC 3D NAND. QLC brings more capacity at a lower price but sacrifices some performance for the trade off. Both technologies seem to be lacking exactly where the other is strongest, so Intel combined them, bringing performance and capacity. Intel Announced Optane Memory H10
  24. I did not expect this. Figured 16TB would require HAMR or MAMR. With it still at 9 platters, I wonder how they squeezed in the extra density. Without going to the dark side (SMR).
  25. Code-named Ice Lake, Intel upcoming 10nm processor is aimed at mobile PCs. Ice Lake is built off of the Sunny Cove CPU microarchitecture and according to Intel, is expected to deliver a new level of technology integration on a client platform. Ice Lake will have Gen11 integrated graphics architecture and support Intel Adaptive Sync technology that will enable smooth frame rates and be capable of more than 1 TFLOP of performance for richer gaming and creation experience. Ice Lake is also said to be the first to integrate Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6 wireless standard, and Intel DL Boost to accelerate AI workloads. Along with all of the above benefits, Ice Lake is said to help increase battery life as well. Intel will be rolling out a server version of Ice Lake as well, aimed at 2020.

  26. While HDDs are all about cramming more and more capacity in the same form factor, SSDs are looking to make themselves smaller with higher capacity and better performance. Toshiba was the first company to come out with a single package PCIe SSD and the BG4 is another example of innovation. The BG4 can leverage Toshiba’s 96-layer BiCS FLASH 3D memory to hit 1,024GB of capacity in a single package. Not only is this double the capacity of the previous version, it is also 0.2mm thinner than the previous generation’s. Toshiba was also able to double the PCIe Gen3 lane count to 4 to squeeze even more performance out of the same form factor. The company claims the new drive can hit 2.25GB/s sequential read, 1.7GB/s sequential write, 380K IOPS random read, and 190K IOPS random write. Toshiba Unveils Its 1TB BGA SSD
  27. Netgear is calling their new switching line "Smart Managed Pro S350," and it supports Internet Protocol version 6. The series consists of five switch models all of which provide gigabit Ethernet with 2 or 4 SFP ports for fiber uplinks. Designed for networks where voice, video, and data are all carried over a single network, these new switches offer a range of 8, 24, or 48 Ethernet ports with all but the largest including power over Ethernet (PoE) plus variants. Netgear Releases New Router & Wireless Access Point
  28. Capacity needs are only going up. SSDs are getting larger and larger but at a steep costs that is not always needed for several applications. Companies need bigger drives that they can drop in their existing equipment. Here, Toshiba answers the call with the 16TB MG08 HDDs. Being CMR they will work with most applications. The new drive series comes with improved power efficiencies and its large capacity in the same 3.5” footprint helps to lower TCO. The drives are designed for applications such as data-protection, big data aggregation, content serving and digital archiving. Toshiba Announces 16TB MG08 Series HDDs
  29. Would you mind expanding on that? Do you mean I should either get two DAS devices or two NAS devices? I will be the only one accessing the data, so sharing across to 2-10 people is not happening. Remotely accessing would be nice but I have RDP tools for that.
