HPE Updates 3PAR Storage OS

E-mail Print PDF

HPE announces what it claims are the "most significant set of 3PAR storage innovations to date"-- including a next generation 3PAR Operating System (3PAR OS 3.3.1) acting as a "futureproof foundation" for hybrid IT.

3PAR ArrayAccording to the company, the 3PAR OS 3.3.1 features Adaptive Data Reduction (ADR) for comprehensive data compaction to lower capacity costs, updated 3PAR Peer Persistence enabling disaster recovery across greater distances, off-premises copy management with HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) and expanded automation capabilities for the 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC).

In addition, it provides a "seamless path" to emerging technologies such as storage class memory (SCM) and NVM Express (NVMe), while handling the requirements of "third wave" flash evolution that pure-play all-flash systems cannot. These include support for cloud-native applications, datacentre-wide orchestration and tier-1 resiliency.

Gartner: Intelligence and Analytics to Reach $18bn in 2017

E-mail Print PDF

According to Gartner, global business intelligence (BI) and analytics software revenues are to reach $18.3 billion in 2017-- a 7.3% increase from 2016, before growing to $22.8bn by end 2020.

Analytics softwareThe analyst says modern BI and analytics is expanding more rapidly than the overall market, offsetting declines in traditional BI spending. The modern BI and analytics platform emerged recently to meet new requirements for accessibility, agility and deeper analytical insight, shifting the market from IT-led, system-of-record reporting to business-led, agile analytics including self-service.

Mind, modern BI and analytics growth will eventually decelerate-- from 63.6% in 2015 to 19% in 2020. Such decline reflects data and analytics becoming mainstream, since pricing pressures will affect revenues despite growth in terms of seat expansion.

Fujitsu Uses Smartphones to Secure Cloud on IoT Devices

E-mail Print PDF

Fujitsu announces an easier means to enable cloud services through Internet of Things (IoT) devices using the biometric authentication functionality of smartphones.

Fujitsu IoT SecuritySuch security comes through FIDO (Fast Identity Online), the standard bringing together a full range of technologies, including biometrics (fingerprint scanners, voice and facial recognition), Trusted Platform Modules (TPM), USB security tokens, Near Field Communication (NFC) and One Time Passwords (OTP).

As the company puts it, the technology establishes a secure network between a cloud service, IoT device and a smartphone, before simultaneously verifying the identity of the user and that of the user in front of the IoT device. Thus, one can "safely and conveniently" access cloud services through a range of IoT devices without need for an ID or password, instead simply using their smartphone's biometric authentication.

AMX Brings N2400 Encoders/Decoders at ISE

E-mail Print PDF

AMX launches the N2400 series at ISE 2017-- a range of encoders and decoders able to send 4K video over gigabit ethernet networks with "near-impeccable latency."

AMX N2400The N2400 series devices support 4K video at 60Hz and 4:4:4 (8-bit colour) through JPEG encoding, and deliver content at native frame rates and colour space with just two frames of latency. HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 support provides compatibility with all current 4K sources and displays.

AMX says the encoders and decoders are easy to integrate with existing video-distribution infrastructures. The devices can be PoE+ powered, and operate via either standard 12VDC power or ethernet connection from the local network switch. Integration is made easiery through use of the same control APIs, software and web interfaces as existing AMX networked AV solutions.

Gefen from Core Brands presents the EXT-DP-4K600-1SC at ISE 2017-- an extender the company claims allows installers to place 4K 600MHz DisplayPort 1.2 sources and displays up to 200m apart with full optical isolation.

Gefen extenderThe EXT-DP-4K600-1SC extends HDCP 2.2, HDCP 1.4 and DPCP compliant DisplayPort 600MHz 4K audio/video over fibre. It supports WQUXGA (3840×2400), 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160), and 4K Cinema — DCI (4096×2160), up to 60 Hz frame rate and 4:4:4 Chroma sub-sampling. The AV signal is extended up to 200m, over a single strand of SC-terminated 50/125µm OM3 or better multi-mode fibre-optic cable.
