IBM Boosts Flash Storage Offering

The IBM all-flash storage hardware and software portfolio gets an update, with an upgrade to 3D TLC flash bringing improvements across all products in making the FlashCore line.

The transition to 3D TLC flash promises to lower both CAPEX and OPEX costs, drive systems and datacentre ROI, as well as increase storage density through the addition of hardware-accelerated inline data compression. This move is seen in the FlashSystem 900, which is used in the FlashSystem V9000 and A9000.

The updated FlashSystem V9000 offers scale-up and scale-out options, allowing improved efficiency while delivering enterprise-class data services. Meanwhile the A9000 and A9000R provide enhanced HyperScale capabilities and easier integration with existing XIV systems.


WD Unveils Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording

WD Unveils Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording

Western Digital's "Innovating to Fuel the Next Decade of Big Data" event hosts the presentation microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR)-- a technology the company allows for future HDDs with over 40TB capacity.

MAMR promises "all the gain without the gain" of the other energy-assisted HDD technology, heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). According to WD, MAMR manages such a breakthrough through a "spin torque oscillator," a means to generate a microwave field able to increase the ability to record data at ultra-high density without sacrificing reliability.

As such, WD claims MAMR enables recordings reaching 4 terabits-per-square-inch over time, allowing the creation of HDDs with 40TB capacity and beyond by 2025, before even further expansion beyond that timeline. The company has been working on the technology for over 8 years, and is confident it has a "multiple-year lead" over the competition.

SanDisk SD, microSD Cards for Industrial Solutions

Western Digital presents industrial- and automotive-grade memory cards-- the SanDisk Industrial and SanDisk Automotive, aimed at specialised applications.

Aimed at industrial scenarios such as surveillance cameras, drones, factory automation and networking equipment, the Industrial and Automotive SD and microSD cards withstand temperatures ranging from -40- to 85-degrees Celsius. They also offer fast sequential read and write speeds of 50/80MB/s to handle high bit-rate video streaming applications.


Maxta Reduces "VMware Tax" With Escape Pod

Maxta Reduces

Maxta presents means for customers to migrate virtual machines from VMware ESXi to Red Hat Virtualisation, and to run both hypervisors on the fully-supported yet truly open source Maxta virtualisation solution.

The result, the company says, helps organisations reduce (or outright eliminate) the "VMware tax" through the choice of a hypervisor that best fits the needs of an application. Maxta hyperconvergence software promises to eliminate the lock-in of server hardware or hypervisors, while facilitating movement to open source virtualisation.

After all, while hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions should simplify IT management through the convergence of separate compute, storage and networking tiers into a single system, man such solutions lock customers into specific hardware or hypervisors. Through its solution, Maxta claims, customers can use any brand of standard x86 server and different hypervisors, bringing about an upper hand in negotiations with server or virtualisation vendors.

WD Buys Solid State With Tegile

Western Digital buys further into solid state storage technology with Tegile Systems, maker of hybrid flash storage arrays for virtualised server and virtual desktop environments.

Financial details of the deals have not been disclosed.

Founded in 2012, Teile is best known for IntelliFlash, a comprehensive storage platform able to deliver storage at flash memory speeds. It also brings WD a list of 1700 customers, as well as an expanded product portfolio for its Data Centre Systems (DCS) unit.
