  1. The SU900 provides up to 2TB of storage leveraging 3D MLC NAND. Aside from the capacity upgrade, ADATA also stated better performance for their new drive to make it an attractive upgrade option for notebooks. The drive starts as low as $100 for the smaller capacity model and offers several data protection features such as software/hardware write protection and early weak block retirement.

  2. Expanding on V2’s flash-based architecture, V3 enables users to near instantly recover data from any second in time by unifying previously separate capabilities with built-in disaster recovery and copy data management, through Reduxio’s patented TimeOS operating system. The company has recently introduced storage service that enable enterprises to address the Performance versus Capacity tradeoff, as well as solve other data management challenges, such as building advanced data protection directly into storage.

  3. Several companies now have distributed operations. These same companies can have powerful capabilities in their data center, while they could be lacking some in their remote and branch offices. Typically at these edge locations, there is limited space and power options, not to mention little to no IT resources. These locations could use all of the same benefits of the data center. Red Hat’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure can address the above issues by doing what HCI solutions do best, converging compute and storage into a single server while being managed centrally.

  4. Tier 1 storage is where the fastest and most reliable storage needs to sit. This is, after all, where the most business critical data will reside and is typically all-flash. As the cloud era has rolled out, Tier 1 storage needs to be flexible so it can adapt to a changing environment. With this in mind, Pure released Purity//FA 5.0 to help customers keep up in the cloud era. At the heart of Purity//FA 5.0 is AcitveCluster an active/active metro stretch cluster solution. ActiveCluster is designed to be simple with the ability to be configured in minutes. It is fully integrated into FlashArray with no need for an add-on gateway.

  5. Flash storage is really taking off and NVMe is a big part of that trend with its high performance and low latency. To serve the various market needs, NVM Express introduced ten new features in 1.3. The majority of the new features are optional, allowing customers a level of flexibility to fit the best needs for their workloads. NVM Express Releases 1.3 Specification
  6. The new updates to SteelCentral delivers an integrated, business focused, and user-centric solution for managing the digital experience of end users. The update also offers integrated monitoring and analysis of the complete end user service, down to the application code. On top of this, the latest update integrates SteelCentral Portal, SteelCentral Aternity, and SteelCentral AppInternals. With a single-pane-of-glass view of IT performance, SteelCentral users can now incorporate the device-based view of end user experience. This integration also allows faster and better troubleshooting of business-critical applications. Riverbed Updates SteelCentral
  7. Customers are leveraging next-generation databases including MongoDB as part of their digital transformation. Utilizing this type of technology will drive operational efficiency and deliver top line growth with new business applications. While that seems great, architecting and managing next-generation solutions may be a bit more difficult and need a different answer like the joint solution announced today. RecoverX provides the cloud recovery and backup while SolidFire provides all-flash storage and ONTAP provides the necessary management. Datos IO & NetApp Partner To Deliver Cloud Data Protection
  8. With the new updates, storage and network vendors will be able to help their customers test storage performance capacity at higher levels under harsh but realistic loading conditions all in a single appliance. Now vendors will know behavior before deploying systems into production environments. This updates will be especially useful to the emerging 32Gb Fibre Channel and 40Gb Ethernet connectivity for storage infrastructures.

  9. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of Lenovo and to celebrate the company is releasing the ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile data center solutions. According to Lenovo, these new solutions provide organizations with fluid resources that can adapt to the evolving needs of a business. ThinkSystem has been redesigned and now encompasses servers, storage, and networking systems. Building off of ThinkSystem as a foundation, ThinkAgile is Lenovo's new software-defined solutions portfolio. Customers can combine the two new brands to create the foundation of a future-defined data center with simplicity, agility, flexibility, and future-proofed preparation. Lenovo Announces Its Largest Data Center Portfolio
  10. As computing demands go up, office space doesn’t follow suit. With less space available, workstation need to shrink down in size while remaining powerful. Aside from having a tiny form factor, the P320 Tiny is easy to setup and is compatible with Lenovo’s ThinkCentre Tiny accessories. The P320 Tiny can be used to develop the latest innovative products, design a state-of-the-art skyscraper, or educate future entrepreneurs. Lenovo Releases The Smallest ISV-Certified Workstation
  11. Data is growing at an explosive rate but that is just one of many issues facing the industry. The increasingly complex algorithms for HPC and AI are also creating a huge demand for scalable processing performance. These demands are creating the need for expansion and flexibility in several areas including storage, compute performance, and agility. To top it off, organizations want security and lower power consumption and a smaller footprint. HPE’s new solutions are designed to address all of these issues. HPE Announces New HPC & AI Solutions
  12. Managed QTS 4.3, the TVS-882ST3 supports the Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet Converter, allowing for Thunderbolt-enabled devices to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection to the NAS. This converter gives users a data transfer method for non-Ethernet devices that is both versatile and cost-effective. QNAP says that it will also provide seamless collaboration between the SMB-enabled Final Cut Pro X 10.3 and Windows PC to enable cross-platform file sharing. The TVS-882ST3 also acts as a secure file center with a deep set of privilege controls for cross-platform file sharing, backup, restoration, and synchronization. QNAP TVS-882ST3 Thunderbolt 3 Now Available
  13. According to VMware, vRealize Suite can enable customers to manage and provision at scale -- compute, network, storage and application services across hybrid cloud environments. The platform helps users address the three most common use cases (intelligent operations, automated IT and DevOps-ready IT) with its comprehensive management capabilities for the SDDC and across multiple clouds. Also the new UI in vRealize Operatin Manager not only allows admins to spot an issue, they can take action on the same screen without going back to vSphere. VMware Updates Its vRealize Cloud Management Platform
  14. The market for Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding with no slowdown in sight. Despite this, network core switches for the most part are showing very little innovation to adapt to this new technology. As more enterprises adopt and integrate mobile and “things,” network switches will too have to make some changes. Aruba aims to address these issues with the announcement of its new 8400 Core Switch Series and ArubaOS-CX Operating system. Aruba Announces New Aruba 8400 Core Switch & ArubaOS-CX
  15. The Machine, as HPE is calling it, is what is known as memory-driven computing. What the machine allows is for analysis of data completely within memory resulting in much faster results. For the current prototype of 160TB of memory, The Machine would be able to simultaneously work with the data from 80,000 human genomes. This level of power can considerably change certain research and development around healthcare and space transportation. HPE Announces The Machine User Group
