QNAP Releases TS-x31P2 And TS-431X2 NAS Series For SMB And Home

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 11:50:56 -0500

QNAP Systems, Inc. today released the TS-x31P2 (available in 2-bay and 4-bay) and TS-431X2 (4-bay) Series with quad-core processors, providing SMB and SOHO users with a more powerful NAS for their collaborative workflows and resource-demanding applications. Both series support Snapshots, allowing users to easily restore the NAS to a previous state in the event of an unexpected NAS failure or when struck by a ransomware attack (The Snapshots feature will be available from QTS 4.3.4). The TS-431X2 also features a 10GbE SFP+ port for empowering containerized applications by using 10GbE networks.

(image) ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched industrial-grade ISDD336 SD cards and IUDD336 microSD cards. Diversifying ADATA offerings for industrial storage, all models feature wide temperature tolerance as well as shock, vibration, and humidity resistance well beyond consumer product ratings. ISDD336 and IUDD336 cards utilize durable and long-lasting 3D MLC NAND Flash, and are fully compliant with SD 3.0/SPI specifications, making them reliable choices for embedded systems. Performance across the board reaches 95MB/s read and 90MB/s write. Customers can choose ISDD336 SD cards in 16GB to 256GB capacities, and IUDD336 microSD cards in 16GB to 128GB capacities.

Tough storage with more options
ADATA continues to increase its focus on industrial-grade products, with more offerings for users. As the SD standard has clear advantages for industrial customers thanks to its compact form factor, durability, and low power requirements, ADATA strives to provide more choice in the SD space. Thus, ISDD336 cards arrive in SD form factor while IUDD336 cards deliver the same quality and performance in microSD.




Team Group Launches L5 LITE 3D SSD

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 11:04:47 -0500

(image) Targeting consumer’s growing demand for computer storage capacity and higher performance, the world’s leading memory brand, Team Group today announces the launch of the solid state drive L5 LITE-3D with all new 3D NAND technology. The latest generation of 3D NAND flash memory has overcome the technical barrier of 2D NAND. With features of durability and low energy consumption, it has gradually become the mainstream memory of the latest generation and enhances the overall capacity of the solid state drive, the performance, and the reliability. It not only provides a better performance and endurance but also breaks through the technical and capacity limitations of planar chips.

The L5 LITE-3D solid state drive is 4 times faster than the traditional hard drive. Its excellent performance and read/write speed not only allow fast boot/shutdown time but also speed up the response time of all application, so consumers can enjoy the high-speed performance immediately after the upgrade. It is lightweight and has an industry-standard 2.5-inch. With only 7mm in height, it is best suited for Ultrabooks on the market. Whether it is for laptop or desktop, the upgrade can be done quickly. It is using SATA III 6Gbps specification and capacities available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, etc. The read speed performance is above 470 MB/s*, which not only easily improves the computer performance, but it is also the best bargain available.




Western Digital Ships 12TB WD Gold Hard Drives

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 09:57:02 -0500

(image) Western Digital Corporation, a global data storage technology and solutions leader, has expanded its WD Gold® hard drive lineup to include a 12TB capacity model, designed to address demanding Big Data workloads. The new high-capacity hard drives provide for increased storage density in a range of enterprise and cloud storage applications.

Whether data comes in the form of confidential consumer data, healthcare records or business intelligence, WD Gold hard drives provide a no-compromise storage solution that modern day IT managers need.

“As data growth continues unabated, retaining more of that data and generating meaningful insight from it becomes increasingly important,” said Brendan Collins, vice president, Devices business unit, Western Digital. “Businesses that most effectively extract value from operational data are able to make smarter decisions, improve business outcomes and ultimately gain a competitive advantage.”

The WD Gold hard drives are designed to store users’ most precious data. Designed for heavy-workload, high-vibration server environments, the new drives have a reliability rating (2.5 million hours MTBF) that is among the highest in WD’s hard drive portfolio. The drives utilize Western Digital’s 4th generation HelioSeal technology, which seals helium in the drive to help provide exceptional capacity, reliability and power efficiency.




Toshiba Announces Ultra-Compact 1TB MQ04 Series Hard Disk Drive

The drive’s 6 Gbit/s SATA interface and 5,400 rotational speed combined with a large 128MiB buffer and consistent seek performance, result in a 34 percent higher internal transfer rate performance when compared to the previous 1TB MQ01 Series models. The new model is also quieter and weighs less than prior generations.




Plextor S3C 256GB Solid State Drive

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 11:30:00 -0500

(image) CDRLabs kicks off the week with a review of Plextor's latest SATA SSD, the S3C. This entry-level device is powered by SMI's SM2254 controller and is available with up to 512GB of SK Hynix's 14nm TLC NAND flash. To compensate for the slow write speeds typically associated with TLC NAND, the S3C is equipped with Plextor's PlexNitro cache acceleration technology, which optimizes performance without taking up any space on the drive. The S3C also has many of the same features found on Plextor's higher end SSDs. In addition to the company's PlexTurbo intelligent RAM caching solution, the drive offers support for its PlexCompressor and PlexVault technologies.




Western Digital Launches My Cloud Home Storage Solution

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 20:55:24 -0500

Western Digital Corporation, a global data storage technology and solutions leader, today launched My Cloud Home, a new personal cloud storage solution that empowers consumers to take control of their often-scattered digital content. With the My Cloud Home solution, consumers can easily aggregate all of their photos, videos and files from their smart phones, computers, USB storage, cloud and social media accounts in one central place. Using their smart phone, tablet or computer from anywhere with an internet connection, consumers then are free to experience and share that content with family and friends.
