Storage

HighPoint Technologies has announced the industry’s first 40-port SATA-600, the Rocket 750. The product supports up to 40 SATA hard drives and is ideal for applications that require huge levels of storage capacity such as data Libraries, archiving and backup solutions, but need to maximize cost savings over SAS expander-based configurations. Powered by a PCIe 2.0 x8 host interface, 40 device channels, and HighPoint’s Intelligent Storage Health Management Suite, the Rocket 750 is an ideal DAS solution for PC platforms and SMB server applications.

Each device port supports up to four SATA hard drives: A single Rocket 750 is capable of supporting up to 40 4 TB 600 GB/s SATA disks, for an unprecedented 160 TB of directed-attached storage. The industry-standard SFF-8087 Mini-SAS connectors streamline installation, upgrade and maintenance procedures, and ensure maximum compatibility with industry standard storage cabling, accessories, and chassis hardware.

The Rocket 750 will be available in April 2013 from our worldwide network of retail and distribution partners for a suggested retail price of USD 739.

ADATA has announced the launch of NBA themed USB flash drives. All thirty teams will be represented in the new product lineup, which is officially licensed by the National Basketball Association and available in the United States and Canada.

Each drive is emblazoned with a vivid team logo on one side, and the NBA logo on the other. All USB flash drives deliver the best of USB 2.0 transmission, and are introduced at 16 GB capacity. According to Tom Lin, Managing Director, “We have had consistently good feedback from consumers on our previous cooperation with the NBA, so this time we brought more color, higher capacity, and a convenient sliding USB connector. With the higher resolution media that people are carrying around and sharing, these flash drives will be indispensable to any basketball fans.”

The cap-less design of the drives eliminates worry about lost drive caps, and a strap hole at the end accommodates a carry strap or a lanyard, for maximum portability.

Purchasers can also take full advantage of ADATA’s free and proprietary value-add software, including UFDtoGO, OStoGO, and the latest Norton Internet Security 2013 (60-day trial).

ADATA Intros Solid State Drives for Servers
Author: Cássio Lima Date: April 2, 2013 - 7:33 AM PST
Category: Storage
More Info: http://www.adata-group.com/index.php?action=product_feature&cid=3&...
Storage

Today, ADATA announced the launch of the enterprise grade SX1000L solid state drive (SSD). This is ADATA’s first offering specifically tailored towards server applications.

Taking advantage of its expertise in NAND flash memory technology, ADATA is emphasizing the reliability and performance of the SX1000L. It employs static wear-leveling technology to maximize device mean time between failures (MTBF) to 1,500,000 hours, providing the long-term dependability required by high density computing and heavy load server operations.  Available in 2.5” standard SATA form factor, the SX1000L implements advanced controller technology to enhance read/write performance. Sequential read speeds reach 560 MB/s, and sequential write is as high as 340 MB/s, with IOPS of 73,000 and 45,000 (Maximum 4K random read and write, respectively).

The use of multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory combined with enhanced flash chip sorting allows for outstanding sustained performance, lower latency, and superior endurance. Enhanced power-loss data protection, easy monitoring of the drive quality through SMART command, and flexible (user-defined) over-provisioning adjustment, all set the SX1000L apart from many similar models currently available.

The long write endurance and the 5 year warranty of the SX1000L make it extremely suitable for read-centric servers such as web and VOD (Video on demand) servers. Notably, the ADATA SX1000L provides greater over-provisioning with higher efficient data compression than is often seen in general SSD controllers. Since in real-world applications most data is compressible, this means sustained performance, endurance, and reliability all gain significant improvement.

The SX1000L SSD will be available in capacities of 100 GB and 200 GB.
