While the cloud has appeared just in time to offer free (or at least cheap) and easy access to gigabytes of storage space, some people like to keep their data close to hand. Here are some of the best storage devices money can buy that will help you keep your data safe.
Samsung Electronics is said to have signed an agreement to produce its 3D NAND SSDs for Google's data centers, in a deal said to be "sizeable".
The connections to Shopify and Bigcommerce focus on automating expense tracking and bookkeeping, while at the same time creating a data-driven picture of business performance.
While 4G was about offering increased capacity and speeds for data-hungry users, vendors, telcos, and regulators are working to ensure that 5G is all about coping with the rise of connected machines.
Along with detailing how data is distributed across machines, the latest version of the MySQL Cluster database is billed as offering better performance and easier system upgrades.
Solid State Drives - SSDs - are a product of convenience, not good architecture. Storage systems need to be re-architected to achieve the highest performance of NAND flash and, soon, byte-addressable non-volatile memory. Here's an example.
EMC's latest array can scale to 50 petabytes. The system is designed to be part of the storage giant's data lake strategy.
Big players know which drives are junk and which aren't, but they keep the data secret. But now Backblaze, with over 100 petabytes of capacity, is giving consumers a treasure trove of drive reliability data today.
Samsung, Plextor, and Kingston are among the manufacturers preparing more tiny, high-performance SSDs that take advantage of the PCI Express connection.
Organizations are increasingly using parallel processing technology to address their high performance, technical computing or big data analysis requirements. Adaptive Computing has long believed that its Moab HPC Suite should be the parallel processing monitor of choice.
Your disks and SSDs have a self-monitoring function called SMART. But how good is it? The fine folks at Backblaze are back with data on how well SMART works for them.
The iPad Air 2's performance enhancements will appeal to those who run graphically demanding apps, although Apple's quest for thinness comes at the cost of reduced battery capacity. Last year's iPad Air remains a good option, but the Air 2 will be the power user's choice.
The National Computational Infrastructure has built an on-demand, high-performance cloud computing environment to process data-intensive computations, such as climate change, earth system science, and life sciences research.
A solid state drive capable of retrieving data orders of magnitude faster than existing SSDs goes on show.
Connected Data announces a new SSD-based Drobo Mini that gives what pro users have been clamoring for: performance. You can now edit video with a redundant array not much larger than a DVD drive.
Making flash SSDs look like disks isn't easy. In fact, advanced high-performance SSDs use more power and run much hotter than disks. They aren't your father's thumb drive.
The disk drive industry faces expensive technical challenges as they try to return to 40 percent capacity growth. Shingled drives could double disk density, if the performance kinks can be worked out. This firmware hack could do it.
Atlassian has unveiled its new enterprise offering, JIRA Data Center, which it says provides high availability and performance at scale for teams building mission-critical software, and is designed for use in customers' own data centres.
The vertically stacked data layers promise faster performance than solid-state drives using conventional NAND flash memory, but at a higher price.
