  1. Construction of the dedicated 3D flash memory fabrication facility began in February 2017 and has since been furnished with the latest cutting-edge manufacturing equipment deposition, etching, and other key production processes. Production of 96-layer 3D flash memory utilizing the new fab began earlier this month. Further investments for production expansion will be made in line with market trends.

  2. Enabled by an extensible data workflow engine and advanced metadata search, Zenko provides users the ability to store, manage, and search data across multiple private and public clouds across a unified interface. Scality Announces Zenko 1.0
  3. KACE SMA 9.0 (also known as the K1000) empowers IT admins to manage network-attached devices with one console; rather than multiple, disparate solutions. Through a single-pane-of-glass view, businesses can manage devices, manage security risks, address service tickets, and audit for compliance. IT admins can also ensure that software licensing is being used efficiently to avoid waste, and reduce the time and resources required for troubleshooting errors. A SysTray application has also been added to show the connection status of the agent for Windows and Mac and allows for restart of the agent or a forced inventory with just the click of a mouse. Additionally, KACE SMA’s updated user interface allows for light, dark or hybrid environments, allowing administrators to set their work environment to their personal preference which is a nice thought. Too few software vendors provide options for dark themed or low-light environment workstations. Quest Releases Version 9.0 KACE
  4. Overall, The HyperX Gaming line of microSD cards is a solid addition to the flash card storage market, particularly the growing gaming segment. Available in capacities up to 256GB, these gaming microSD cards start at $40. HyperX Gaming MicroSD Card Review
  5. Though it might not be as fast as some of the other portable SSDs we've reviewed, the Seagate still boasts good performance that will suit pretty much any consumer or media professional need. It is also very affordable (currently listed as $126 USD on Amazon), has a reliable build and will sit nice and pretty alongside a workstation. Seagate Fast SSD Review
  6. Data centers process all types of queries now including voice, translations, images, videos, and various social media interactions. In order to address all of these different quires—that will require different types of neural networks—organizations need to leverage AI. NVIDIA’s new TensorRT Hyperscale Platform is a combination of hardware and software aimed at addressing the above issues. Leveraging Tesla T4 GPUs, based on the company’s Turing architecture, the new platform will be able to deliver high-performance with low latency for end-to-end applications. NVIDIA Launches AI Data Center Platform
  7. The two companies are co-developing new Lenovo ThinkSystem infrastructure that leverages Lenovo hardware and NetApp’s all-flash data management. These new products, the ThinkSystem DM and DE, will come in both hybrid and all-flash editions. The products will be sold through Lenovo’s supply chain, ranked in the top five by Gartner. Just to note, though these products are running NetApp’s data management, they will be Lenovo branded products. Lenovo Partners With NetApp To Aide With Digital Transformations
  8. Video technology is improving at a rapid rate. Video quality and visual effects have made tremendous leaps and bounds recently and legacy storage equipment has not been able to keep up. Companies can’t upgrade hardware every time these technologies improve but they can upgrade software. According to Qumulo, its new innovations can help studios eliminate SANs, client-side software, HBAs, and fibrechannel switches and cabling through its high-performance centralized uncompressed 4K and 6K video playback solutions. Instead studios will be enabled through 100% Ethernet environments with all-flash storage. The increase in performance means more editors can collaborate on a project at once, potentially increasing its time to finish and lowering costs. Qumulo Ups Performance & Lowers Costs For M&E
  9. Customers looking to accelerate their digital transformation should have everything they need in Lenovo’s SDI and SAN solution that come with Veeam’s Hyper-Availability Platform. The combined technologies are stated as simplifying IT, mitigating risks, while delivering intelligent data management that helps accelerate and expand organizations. These capabilities will help to reduce the costs of legacy infrastructure, virtualization and data protection management. The companies’ state that customers can see accelerated application development and deployment that would increase their ROI. The newly offered solutions have been validated by both Veeam And Lenovo, adding another level of assurance. Veeam & Lenovo Announce Global Partnership
  10. The 9PXM UPS features a double-conversion technology, which promises constant power conditioning and high efficiency while reducing energy and cooling costs. With the inclusion of Eaton’s Advanced Battery Management (ABM) technology which utilized a three-stage charging technique that significantly extends battery service life and optimizes recharge time (when compared to traditional trickle charging technology), the 9PXM is an ideal backup power solution for a range of IT applications. Eaton Launches 9PXM UPS
  11. SMBs face similar storage issues as larger enterprises, however, they do not have similar budgets. SMBs need the performance, security, and simplicity of management for a more attractive price point. The new PowerVault ME4 Series family delivers significant increases over previous Dell EMC entry systems. Dell claims the customer can install the system in just 15 minutes plus 15 more minutes to configure. Some of its key features include: Dell EMC Releases Entry-Level Powervault Storage Arrays
  12. Big Data has been changing how the enterprise looks at data over the last few years and now technologies like AI and ML will change how the enterprise leverages that data going forward. AI and ML will change how the enterprise works as a whole as it will be able to help solve complex issues and allow for processes to become more and more efficient. While there is a world of promise here, there are some issues such as dealing with new workloads, patterns, and different resource allocation. This is where Cisco’s new UCS server comes in.

  13. Seagate's IronWolf 14TB drive targets the home, SOHO, and SMB NAS markets. The Ironwolf Pro 14TB targets the Commercial and Enterprise NAS markets. Both are built with multi-user environments in mind, and will likely support 180 or 300TB/year user workload rates respectively like all the other drives in the same line. They will continue to provide the same features we've come to expect from Seagate's Ironwolf line including RAID performance, dual-plane balance, rotational vibration (RV) sensors, advanced power management, and error recovery control. IronWolf and IronWolf Pro drives feature a 3-year and 5-year limited warranty respectively. While the information we were given doesn't specify mean times between failures, there's no reason to expect the new drives to deviate from the smaller drives in the same line which all rated to one million hours MTBF for the standard version or one point two million hours MTBF for the pro. Seagate Releases 14TB Drives
  14. Samsung’s latest portable drive is touted as being its fastest yet. The X5 leverages both NVMe and Thunderbolt 3 technology for performance as high as 2.8GB/s read and 2.3GB/s write. Ideal for creative professionals or media enthusiast, the new drive can store up to 2TB of data. Since it is portable it is design to take a beating and a drop or two, but who would want to do that to such a pretty drive. For an added layer of protection the X5 comes with AES 256-bit encryption and can be password protected for further security. Samsung Portable SSD X5 Review
  15. Overall the new RS-Series Rack from Eaton brings many updates from the S-Series Rack, primarily around customization and additional size offerings to meet the demands of the ever-changing datacenter. Items such as rail spacing, while tool-less prior, become more intuitive and easier to align in the newest rack model. Whether setting up a single rack in a small business environemnt or configuring rows of these enclosures, the operational benefits are obvious for the RS-Series racks. Configuration is simple thanks to the toolless deisgn, and the units are rugged and well-built as we've come to expect from Eaton. Add in the PDU options, cable managment and the like, and the RS is a great fit for the Eaton family of datacenter products. Eaton RS Rack Enclosure Review (RSV4261B)
