NetApp Announces Its 3Q18 Financial Results
  3. The Intel SSD DC P4510 Series marks the company’s first enterprise 64-layer 3D NAND SSD. The series comes with twice the capacity, topping out at 8TB, and has a quoted improvement of 2x lower mixed workload latency and up to 10x lower read workload latency compared to the previous P4500 Series. Intel states that they new series can enable users to do more per server, minimize service disruptions, and efficiently manage at scale. Intel Introduces Its New P4510 Series SSD
  4. The TS-x53Be features an Intel Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz), 2GB/4GB DDR3L RAM (up to 8GB), dual Gigabit LAN ports, and SATA 6Gb/s HDDs and SSDs. QNAP quotes both models with 225MB/s read and write speeds, while maintaining this performance when using the AES-NI accelerated encryption. The TS-x53Be series is also equipped with five USB Type-A ports, one of which is supplemented with the one-touch copy button. QNAP TS-253Be & TS-453Be NAS Solutions Now Available

  6. The new VxBlock 1000 supports many types of workloads as well as working with several types of storage arrays, data protection solutions, and compute systems. According to Dell EMC, this helps to deliver on the promise of CI around IT infrastructure lifecycle management simplification. It will also help IT admins spend less time on administrative tasks and allow them to focus instead on core business functions and innovations. Dell EMC Expands Its CI Line With VxBlock System 1000
  7. Security and the standards around it always need to be evolving in order to address the risks that change every day. The two companies are working together to help address the changing issues. RackTop will be combining its high-performance Software-Defined Storage platform with Seagate’s BAA-/TAA-compliant FIPS 140-2 disk drives and enclosures, as well as FIPS-compliant, automated encryption key management to create the SDP2. According to the two companies, this immediately satisfies the 18 data-related controls of NIST 800-171. It also meets NIST 800-88 and FIPS 140-2 requirements for protecting non-classified information, is certified to ISO 28001 for supply chain security assurance, and meets the GDPR for security and compliance.

  8. When the general public thinks of automation and AI they think of self driving Tesla cars or killer robots (or perhaps only job killing robots). For IT, autonomous services mean something quite different such as creating higher availability and removing monotonous and tedious tasks from admins. Oracle already has autonomous services, including the Oracle Autonomous Database, and is now expanding even further to make all of Oracle Cloud Platform services self-driving, self-securing and self-repairing. Oracle Makes Several Announcements At its CloudWorld New York
  9. The McLaren Technology Group is in the process of creating a high-performing hybrid cloud, the first part of this transformation was just completed. The hybrid cloud leverages Dell EMC compute, storage, and infrastructure management software in its data center services. Not only will this new partnership expand upon the above, the company can take what Dell has to offer and integrate it into design, manufacturing, trackside operations, telemetry, safety-critical ecosystems, storage, esports and simulation, fan engagement and guest experience. Dell Technologies Forms A Wide-Ranging Partnership With McLaren
  10. Automated cars, or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), are right around the corner and many companies are making big strides in that direction, Tesla probably being the most notable. On top of this, the infotainment systems for higher end and middle end cars now demand more storage with high performance. The new eUFS not only provides 256GB or capacity, Samsung states that it can hit read speeds of 850MB/s and random performance of 45K IOPS. Samsung Mass Produces Its 256GB eUFS
  11. The workforce is more mobile than ever. Workers work from several locations including at home. This mobility means that they need the tools to get the job done while keeping company information secure and having the ability to easily collaborate. HP is addressing these issues in its new mobile workstation revamp. This includes the addition of HP’s premium design language to its new workstations, previously only available on EliteBook 1000 series workstations. The new workstations have also passed MIL-STD-810G testing proving durability. And the workstations are ENERGY STAR certified as well as EPEAT Gold registered. HP Revamps Its Mobile Workstations & Notebooks
  12. AMD is now combining the promise of performance with Dell EMC’s proven PowerEdge server Technology. The CPUs offer up to 32 cores (64 threads), 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe lanes lending even more flexibility, performance and security features found in the PowerEdge line. The three new EPYC-powered servers will come with scalable business architecture and intelligent automation PowerEdge are know for as well as iDRAC9 and Quick Sync 2 management support. Dell EMC Adds AMD EPYC CPU-Based PowerEdge Servers To Its Portfolio
  13. Samsung has updated its EVO line of mainstream SATA SSDs with the 860. The new SSD sees a very slight bump in performance and better endurance. The drive has a new controller and leverages intelligent TurboWrite technology to squeeze out quoted speeds of 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write. The 850 EVO comes in capacities ranging from 250GB to 4TB with the upper end model coming out at $100 USD less MSRP than the 850 EVO did a year ago. Samsung 860 EVO SSD Review
  14. The HP Z4 isn’t new, in fact it has been in production long enough to become a best seller for HP. What is new is the option of added Intel Core X-Series processors (with 6 to 18 cores). The workstation now supports up to two GPUs (either NVIDIA Quadro P6000 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100). With more powerful CPUs and dual GPUs, the HP Z4 is now designed with VR content creation in mind, along with simulation and visualization. HP Announces Several VR Products & Services
  15. Protecting data is critical in today’s world full of ransomware attacks. While there are several options for larger companies, the smaller and medium size guys are limited as to where to go. To address this Dell EMC have releases a new 2U Data Domain in the form of DD3300. The company sates that the DD3300 will provide storage protection and an increase in storage with variable-length deduplication, it also offers scalability and WAN bandwidth savings with a data reduction ratio of 10-55x.
