WD and Toshiba Settle Legal Disputes!

E-mail Print PDF

Following months of dispute Western Digital and Toshiba finally kiss and make up through an agreement to "strengthen and extend their relationship"-- specifically through a joint investment in the Fab 6 facility in Yokkaichi, Japan.

ToshibaThe legal dispute came about a year ago, after Toshiba decided to put its prized memory business (the Toshiba Memory Corporation, aka TMC) on sale following massive losses suffered by its nuclear power subsidiary. WD objected to the sale, claiming its consent was required due to its May 2016 acquisition of SanDisk, which included half of the Toshiba-SanDisk partnerships in NAND flash memory manufacture.

May 2017 saw WD start legal arbitration proceedings against Toshiba. In turn Toshiba filed a lawsuit against WD in Japanese courts, claiming unfair competition and mishandling of trade secrets. The situation between the two companies only got more bitter from that point, making things worse for a Toshiba eager for the capital the sale of TMC would bring.

Toshiba announces the MG07ACA series-- the first 14TB conventional magnetic recording (CMR) HDDs from the company based on a 9-disk helium-sealed design, aimed at cloud-scale and enterprise storage applications.

Toshiba MG07ACAThe MG07ACA comes in 14TB 9-disk and 12TB 8-disk models. According to the company, the helium-sealed 3.5-inch mechanical design allows for better storage density and a lower HDD operating power profile than the previous MG06ACA series. Laser welding technology ensures the helium remains sealed inside the enclosure.

IDC: "Whole Cloud" Revenues to Reach $554bn in 2021

E-mail Print PDF

According to IDC global "whole cloud" revenues will reach $554 billion in 2021-- more than double those of 2016, the result of the revolution brought about by the cloud delivery and consumption model over the past decade.

CloudThe term "whole cloud" covers not only public, private and hybrid clouds, but also managed cloud services, cloud-related professional services, and hardware and software infrastructure for building clouds.

"The most obvious takeaway from this forecast is that the shift to the cloud consumption model-- in all its forms-- is a mass movement, and will continue to be such over the forecast period," the analyst says. "Equally important, though, is the steady drumbeat of tech innovation that is coming from the major public cloud suppliers, making it virtually impossible for enterprises and developers seeking advantage through IT not to embrace the public cloud."
