  1. Can't say I'm too surprised. I'll never forget when in 2015 at VMworld they told me I could not attend their event. LOL...that and refusal to work with us on a review unless they controlled it; bad karma combo for the kill.
  2. The idea of buying an SSD on controller tech flashes me back to 2014. Buy a good drive, controller won't matter. Samsung is probably your friend in this adventure.
  3. We haven't heard anything from end user HDD guys in ages. I can't even recall testing one that wasn't some sort of hybrid abomination for a year or more.
  4. Today Mesosphere launched a beta of Kubernetes on its DC/OS. This beta will provide customers with a platform for running both stateless and stateful services with a common set of security, maintenance, and management tools. The company is also releasing the latest version of DC/OS, version 1.10. This version adds capabilities making it more secure, resilient, and a high-performance platform to power containerized applications and data services.

  5. Sorry, what's the rest of the context for your question?
  6. Pretty fun config. I like the mixing of bays, great for higher performance volumes or use a couple 2.5" bays for cache.
  7. That's one of the best things about what we're seeing out of flash arrays. The fears of wearing out SSDs have gone away and now vendors can offer a lower cost option vs the heavily over provisioned drives that have higher endurance. Glad it's working out for you.
  8. The HP t430 Thin Client and HP mt44 Mobile Thin Client is slated for worldwide release in early May 2018 priced at $249 and $849, respectively. Moreover, the HP ThinPro 7 OS will be available in July 2018. HP t430 and mt44 Thin Clients Announced
  9. The performance with DR on didn't really move from the lsat review we did. It's clearly a weak point for Fujitsu. That and the interface could be better. That said, teh performance per $ is pretty darn compelling.

    Replacement for Intel SSD DC S3610

    Can you tell us more about the use, performance and capacity needs?
  11. Probably so for most users.
  12. The Seagate Backup Plus Fast portable drive is performance-heavy mobile device that provides users a plethora of storage and is the first portable drive that offers 4TB of storage space. Backup Plus Fast is fully USB powered, allowing users to bring along their videos, music, and pictures without having to carry an extra external power supply while on the go. Also included is the Seagate Dashboard, which offers users the ability to schedule and automate backups for their computer, social networks and mobile devices.

  13. We'll see what we can do on this front. Our application tests are a good measure for something like this.
  14. There's a good example in the link I provided. The needs are variable though, we don't all test for the same things. You'll have to do more research on that, we unfortunately can't answer that question for you.
  15. This is a little dated but we have a guide on how to do this. http://www.storagereview.com/fio_flexible_i_o_tester_synthetic_benchmark
  16. HCIbench is probably the easiest place to start in VMware. FIO, VDbench...

    OCZ Intrepid 3800 or 37000

    Why? Those are pretty ancient at this point.
  18. That's probably something that would be easy enough to include in future reviews.
  19. Yeah, they all brand these things like NAND differently to try to stand out. In other news, the 1TB EVO did much better, data forthcoming.
  20. I'm curious, did they let you order that specific part number or was it just the 1.92TB class drive? And what's this for?
  21. That's our theory but we don't know for sure yet as they haven't sent us one

    Quiet hard drive

    Heh, our lab is almost all-flash and it's loud as heck. So yeah...HDD noise is both subjective and can vary from one HDD to another even in the same product line.
  23. We're migrating away from the old benchmarks to this new style. We do have a new application test that's coming in the next review (Optane) that includes creative pro style application test. We will continue to add application testing to the reviews as we can to give a more real world perspective.

    Advice to buy new SSD

    Hard to not love the Samsung Pro 860, but it will be more costly. http://www.storagereview.com/samsung_860_pro_ssd_review
  25. The HP Z38c curved monitor excels when it comes to improving workflows and productivity, offering a ton of real estate with its 37.5-inch screen; users can easily fit two windows (along with a few other smaller ones) on the screen. Though the display does take up a relatively large footprint, it does eliminate the need for two monitors, which undoubtedly takes up more space than one Z38c. HP’s monitor is also beautifully designed, offers a range of different mounting options and features a bright Ultra-Wide Quad High Definition 4K (3840x1600) resolution. This display quality and size comes a costly price point, however, as it starts at roughly $1,200. HP Z38c Curved Display Review
