N4200 Zero Crash NAS has battery back up to help safeguard stored data

Rather than tempt users with a raft of fancy (but infrequently used) features, the "Zero Crash" N4200 Network Attached Storage (NAS) unit from Thecus concentrates on providing peace of mind. Offering what's dubbed as a "6D" approach to storage stability, the unit benefits from running a second version of the operating software as a precaution against primary failure and a backup power supply.  Read More

The 250Gb version of the Xtreem S1 SSD from the Team Group

Solid State Drives (SSD) have many advantages over more familiar Hard Disk Drives (HDD) including low power consumption, silent running and resistance to shock damage but it's when read/write speeds are compared that HDDs get blown out of the water. The Team Group has equipped its new Xtreem-S1 SSD with a SandForce processor to offer the user read speeds of 270Mb/sec and write of 260Mb/sec.  Read More

A schematic of data storage in (left) converntional magnetic memory and (right) thermally ...

Solid state drives (SSDs) should - theoretically - offer energy savings compared to the conventional platter-based variety. They have no moving parts and don’t require the battery draining spinning of platters that leads to excessive heat generation. But researchers have found that random thermal fluctuations in magnetic memory can be harnessed to reduce the energy required to store information on these drives, offering the prospect of magnetic-based computer memory that operates at significantly lower power than platter-based HDDs.  Read More

CompactFlash cards with 144PB capacity are still only fantasy - but they are now theoretic...

The body responsible for setting the standards for CompactFlash cards, the CompactFlash Association, has announced the specs for the latest 5.0 revision of the mass storage format. CompactFlash 5.0 adds 48-bit addressing (up from 28-bit) which enables an increased data transfer unit size of 32MB per transfer (up from 128KB) and a maximum capacity of 144PB (up from 137GB)... that's 144,000 terabytes!  Read More

The CubeTube is like a circular indoor solar panel

Although great strides have been made recently to make offices more energy efficient, fluorescent office lighting is still great cause for concern. Installing controllers which automatically switch off lighting when no movement is detected is one method of saving energy but Solaroad Technologies proposes recycling otherwise wasted light energy by placing cylindrical photovoltaic harvesting and storage devices on top of workstation cubicle walls.  Read More
