  1. Today in Seoul, South Korea, Intel held its Memory & Storage day, inviting StorageReview on site. The main focus of the show was for the company to showcase some of the milestones that its Optane technology has been able to hit since it was released. Though, there were a handful of new announcements along the way both for Optane as well as other storage technology including 144-Layer 3D NAND.

  2. Today, Dell Technologies announced new PowerProtect DD series appliances. This is a rather curious decision as Dell already has both a PowerProtect appliance line and a DD (Data Domain) appliance line. It would appear that Dell is attempting to merge the two product lines. The Dell EMC Data Domain DD3300 appliance is rebranded to the Dell EMC PowerProtect DD3300 effective today.

  3. Today Igneous, Inc. announced a new version of its DataProtect, a software only version that writes data directly to any Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 storage (S3, Standard-IA, Glacier, Glacier Deep Archive). Igneous makes the claim that its DataProtect was already the only backup and archive solution architected for the massive scale of unstructured, machine-generated file, and object data. Now, this software only version, will give users a simple and cost-effective strategy for protecting file and object data at scale, directly to any AWS tier of public cloud storage.

  4. You don’t need to have a massive media library or even a home lab that makes your dread your power bill every month to appreciate a fast network connection. The technology has finally dipped into the affordable range for many of us. If you are interested in experimenting with virtualization, iSCSI block storage, editing or even moving your gaming collection off your main drive – a high bandwidth connection to your other machines or servers just makes sense. We used a lot of QNAP gear in this project, there are of course other options. The ease of use and cost of the components used here though made for a great and cost effetive experience.
