IBM Refreshes FlashSystem for Cloud

IBM announces 3 additions to the FlashSystem all-flash array portfolio-- the A9000, A9000R and DS8888, all promising a minimum latency of 250μs (microsecond) for the rapid access of data in cloud-based workloads.

Inside the arrays are MicroLatency modules, proprietary flash drives Big Blue says are superior to alternative technologies by being able to transfer data within the flash array via hardware instead of (slower) software.

The A9000 is a full-configured 8U system featuring 3 controllers designed for cloud, VDI and VMware workloads, while the A9000R is a racked grid-design system for mixed-use and cloud workloads. Both offer data reduction features such as pattern removal, deduplication and real-time compression, a REST API, multi-tenancy capabilities, noisy-neighbour removal capabilities and integration with Microsoft, VMware, OpenStack and IBM SoftLayer environments.

Nexsan Intros Unity Unified Storage

Unified storage solutions specialist Nexsan presents Unity-- a next-generation storage platform combining the performance and scalability of DRAM and flash with private cloud synchronisation and data mobility support.

As the company puts it, many solution bring together storage, data management, file sync and share, and security, but none do so within a single unified solution. As such Unity promises high performance and multi-sote collaboration at "LAN speed," with n-Way Sync functionality handling enterprise sync across distributed primary storage while securing content through encryption, self-encrypting drives and encryption keys.

Sony Intros 2nd Gen Optical Disc Archive

Sony announces the second generation of the Optical Disc Archive System-- an upgrade featuring high-capacity optical media joint-developed by Sony and Panasonic.

The companies claim the optical media offers a 10-year shelf life while doubling single cartridge capacity to 3.3TB. The 2nd generation Optical Disc Archive cartridge also features an 8-channel optical drive unit offering twice the read/write speeds over the previous generation, allowing it to handle real-time 4K video playback.

Designed for use in near-line applications, deep archive storage or disaster recovery systems, the Optical Disc Archive System is available in hardware configurations ranging from standalone to scalable robotic archives. Main components include a standalone USB drive unit, an 8GB fiber channel library drive unit (for use in robotic systems) and the Optical Disc Archive media cartridge.

Qumulo Updates Core, Intros Hybrid Appliances

Data-aware scale-out NAS specialist Qumulo announces the Core 2.0 OS update together with a trio of QC series hybrid storage appliance-- the QC40, QC104 and QC260, all featuring a flexible software and hardware design.

Qumulo says Core 2.0 differs from storage software alternative by having real-time data analytics built directly into the file system, giving enterprises an "unprecedented" view of data and storage resources at scale. The system promises to be scalable, efficient and resilient, with analytics providing answers to questions such as "where did all the storage capacity go?" and "When will we run out of storage space and why?"

Intel Intros First 3D-NAND SSDs

Intel's Cloud Day event sees the announcement of the first SSDs from the company featuring 3D-NAND technology-- the DC P3520 and P3320 series, enterprise models designed for read-intensive applications.

Optimised for use with the latest Xeon E5-2600 v4 server processors, the SSDs feature a PCIe Gen 3x4 interface and are ideal for cloud and data analytics use. The DC P3320 promises 5x faster performance and up to 3.2x faster business analytics over regular SATA SSDs, while the DC P3520 is the faster option with "significant performance and latency improvements."

The drives are available in a 2.5-inch form factor or as a PCIe 3.0 half-height half-length add-in card, in 450GB, 1.2TB and 2TB capacities.
