  1. The new name is a combination of the Japanese word kioku meaning “memory” and the Greek word axia meaning “value,” resulting in Kioxia. Kioxia aims to merge memory and value ushering in a new era of memory. The need for storage and memory has rapidly changed over the past few years. Kioxia’s mission is to evolve memory to create uplifting experiences to change the world. Its vision is to take its core progressive memory technology and products, services and systems that create choice and define the future. Toshiba Memory Will Rebrand As Kioxia In October
  2. Kubernetes has really taken off in a big way, and shows no signs of cooling. Since its release, it has become particularly important as part of cloud infrastructure. A big drawback is that many organizations still see Kubernetes as complex. Pivotal has been working to make Kubernetes more approachable with its Pivotal Container Service (PKS), which enables small teams of operators to manage numerous Kubernetes clusters at scale. The company is now taking all its learned over the years to make it easier for developers to deploy and run software on Kubernetes. Pivotal Announces Alpha PAS On Kubernetes
  3. This update to Barracuda's CloudGen Firewall is focused on improving the security of Azure Virtual Wan. With the update, the Office 365 policy set in Azure Virtual WAN by the customer is now automatically configured and enforced in every Barracuda CloudGen Firewall connected to Azure Virtual WAN. Now that the firewall respects Office 365 breakout policies, customers can specify Office 365 traffic categories that they trust and allow network traffic to bypass proxies so they can route directly to the nearest Microsoft network location. This should improve network flow. Connection and configuration of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall with Azure Virtual WAN is fully automated as well, making it easy to get started with the solution. Users need only to fill out authentication information and click "connect." Barracuda Firewall Now Enforces Office 365 Breakout Policies
  4. QoreStor version 6.0 adds additional support and services for cloud services. The new features should work across both Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud storage platforms to provide secure, long-term data retention. QoreStor 6 adds two new cloud-centric tiers; Cloud Tier and Performance Tier. Cloud Tier is a policy-driven, cloud extension to QoreStor. Cloud Tier offers access to move and recover data from cloud storage. Performance tier is a high-speed Storage Group that allows for faster backup and instant recovery technologies. Performance Tier also provides 2x recovery point objectives (RPOs) that enable quick recovery. Quest Releases QoreStor Version 6
  5. The SecureData SecureUSB BT is a portable drive for those that need extra security. It comes with the regular security features such as FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Complaint Design, AES 256-bit Hardware Encryption. It can also take a beating and is resistant to dust and water. The more interesting aspect is that users will leverage their mobile device to unlock and use various features on the drive. SecureData SecureUSB BT Review
  6. Cloud breaches happen. According to Gartner, by 2020, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials, or insider theft, and not cloud provider vulnerabilities. Developers need to focus on building applications not spending all their time worrying about security and compliance. This is where Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian for Microsoft Azure comes in.

  7. File storage is a critical component to enterprises and those that are going through their digital transformation prioritize it. Users of SAP need access to highly available and consistent file storage and developers that leverage Kubernetes need file storage for their stateful workloads. More and more workloads are migrating or starting in the cloud and need natively compatible file storage options. Elastifile has been a pioneer of enterprise-grade file storage at cloud scale.

  8. The product that the funding is directly related to is the Prodigy Processor Universal Chip. Tachyum claims its new chip is faster than Xeon and smaller than ARM. On top of that claim, Tachyum also states its 64-core processor requires 10x less power and reduces processor cost by 3x. The company has found a way to reduce the amount of hardware found in a typical processor that relates to faster speeds at a lower cost. The company says the new chip can enable an Exaflop supercomputer using a mere 250,000 Prodigy processors. Tachyum also states that its new processor will allow users to simulate, in real-time, human brain-sized neural nets beginning in 2020, instead of 2028. Tachyum Aims To Compete With Intel, AMD, & NVIDIA
  9. DataCore ONE is all based around the company’s new cloud-based predictive analytics engine, DataCore Insight Services (DIS). DIS is said to provide actionable insights from a 360-degree view of infrastructure-wide storage. Going more in-depth, DataCore quotes the new technologies to use the “The SaaS control plane draws on telemetry and the collective learnings from thousands of customers around the globe for early problem detection, best practice recommendations and capacity planning.” DataCore ONE leverages AI and ML to find possible issues and sends out corrective actions to users though some are highly automated and may be executed remotely from the same web user interface. This should result in less downtime which in turn will save costs. ONE also leverages auto-tiering that moves data to the appropriate class of storage not only increasing savings but increasing benefits particularly for containerized applications, virtual machines and bare metal hosts DataCore ONE Launches To Accelerate SDS
  10. Synology’s 12-bay DS2419+ is the latest member of the DS24xx+ family. The DS2419+ comes equipped with an Intel Atom C3538 quad-core processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine. Out of the box, this NAS comes equipped with a 4GB DDR4 memory module but is expandable up to 32GB when taking advantage of the additional memory slot the NAS provides. Also featured are four RJ-45 1GbE LAN ports with link aggregation and failover support. Synology DiskStation DS2419+ Review
  11. Other changes to Horizon Connection Server include enabling users to configure additional options in Horizon Administrator such as "Always", "Log to file on error (default)", and "Never" to enable event log messages to be generated and stored in Syslog format in log files. Users can publish and launch UWP applications now. And users are now able to select when they want to refresh the OS disks on their instant clones. VMWare Horizon 7.9 & CART 5.1 Released
  12. ORICO has released a stylish enclosure (in multiple colors) that allows users to carry around up to 2TB of NVMe storage. The enclosure is highly compatible and doesn’t get in the way of the underlying NVMe SSDs. The installation only takes a few seconds and then it is ready to go. The enclosure supports SSD TRIM command and the company claims speeds up to 992MB/s. ORICO NVMe M.2 SSD Enclosure Review
  13. Samsung has doubled the capacity of its latest M.2 NVMe SSDs with the introduction of the 970 EVO Plus 2TB. The drive comes with all of the same benefits as its smaller brethren as well as a modest bump in random performance. The company quotes sequential speeds at 3.5GB/s read and 3.3GB/s write and random performance at 620K IOPS read and 560K IOPS write. Like the rest of the line, the 2TB version is aimed at power users and gamers that need both performance and storage. Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB Review
  14. Micron c200 microSDXC card is available in capacities up to a massive 1TB and is designed to significantly increase available storage of Android smartphones and to handle 4K HDR video capture/playback. Micron quotes above-par performance with 100MB/s reads and 95MB/s writes in sequential transfer speeds and 4,000 IOPS reads and 2,000 IOPS writes in random transfer speeds. Micron c200 microSDXC Card Review
  15. The HC series is one of three options in Microsoft Azure's high-performance computing (HPC) VM offerings. The H series offers a wide variety of general-purpose nodes. The HB series is designed for applications that are memory bound. In contrast, the HC series has only a single configuration and targets applications that are computationally bound while remaining more cost efficient than some of the other computationally focused Azure offerings. Some use cases MS Azure recommends for the HC are fluid dynamics, explicit finite element analysis, and weather modeling. Microsoft Expands HC Series Availability
