Synology Storage Packages Pack Intelligence

Synology releases 3 storage packages for its network-attached storage (NAS) products-- Drive, Office and Moments, enabling users to store, backup and synchronise files while ensuring privacy and security.

Moments allows users to backup photos from PCs and smartphones to a Synology NAS. It uses deep-learning analytics to automatically identify people, places and objects in photos, before sorting in appropriate albums. Meanwhile Drive is a revamp of the Cloud Station Suite file syncing software. It promises simplified data management on Synology NAS, allowing data syncing across multiple devices and easier office collaboration.


IDC: "Solid Growth" For SSD Industry

E-mail Print PDF

The outlook for the SSD industry remains "strong," IDC reports-- global SSD unit shipments are set to increase at a CAGR of 15.1% over the 2016-2021 forecast period, while revenues grow at a 14.8% CAGR to reach $33.6 billion by 2021.

The drivers behind such a forecast are the great product availability and improved pricing dynamics as the industry moves to 3D NAND flash. The analyst says current NAND supply constraints will diminish in 2018, bringing about further price erosion. In turn, lower SSD pricing drives greater SSD adoption in PCs and other client devices.

As a result, 2016-2021 SSD shipments in the PC and CE markets are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 15.8%. Enterprise SSD demand should also remain strong throughout the period, as customers turn to flash-optimised systems for both traditional storage and server-attached solutions.


WD and Toshiba Settle Legal Disputes!

WD and Toshiba Settle Legal Disputes!

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.

The 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 Intros 14TB Conventional Magnetic Recording HDD

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.

The 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.

Connectivity comes through SATA 6Gbit/s, while access performance reaches 7200RPM. The 9-disk 14TB models achieve a 40% increase in maximum capacity over previous MG06ACA 10TB models, as well as a power efficiency improvement of over 50%.


StorONE Launches TRU Storage

StorONE Launches TRU Storage

Israeli storage startup StorONE claims to re-invent the storage stack with TRU (Total Resource Utilisation)-- a storage array controller able to provide file, block and object storage on the same drives.

TRU supports all kinds of drives (namely NVMe, SAS, SATA, SSDs and HDDs) on the same server, together with all storage protocols (block, file and object). It can provide 650000 random read 4K IOPS and effectively unlimited snapshots, and scales up to 18Gb/sec of throughput and 15PB capacity.

StorONE claims a single HDD JBOD can provide 5Gbps with high capacity utilisation, while a single virtual appliance with low resources and just 4 SSDs can reach performance comparable to a midrange storage solution. Customers can install TRU storage as a physical server or virtual appliance, and it runs on any white label hardware, vendor hardware or hyper-converged infrastructure.
