WD Prepares Voluminous Re+ HDDs for Data Centers

Western Digital announces a new high-capacity 3.5-inch HDD for data centers. The WD Re+ will be available in versions of up to 6 TB. All of them are designed with power-saving ideas in mind; hence, their maximal power consumption index does not go above 6 W. The new-comer employs five-platter architecture and SATA 6 Gb/sec interface that guarantees the maximal efficiency level. Moreover, its MTBF index approximates 1.2 million hours on average workload index of 550 TB per year.

The WD Re+ is distinguished by the following advantages:

— the incorporation of dual actuator positioning system that improves the drive’s working efficiency;

— the implementation of RAFF technology that monitors HDD parameters in real time and compensates for the linear and angular vibration;

— the employment of StableTrac technology that reduces vibrations and stabilizes drive platters;

— the usage of TLER technology that prevents latencies or an abrupt destruction of RAID … …

New E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 Monitors from AOC are Showcased

Retina stress, triggered by a durable indigo emission, is no longer a threat for users, since AOC has integrated an innovative Anti-Blue Light technology into a pair of high-end monitors. The E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 boast an increased from 450 nm to 460 nm wavelength; this reduces harmful blue emissions by 90% and promotes for an ideal color rendering.

Moreover, a couple comes with an implemented Flicker Free technology. It totally eliminates flickering on adjusting LED backlight towards screen brightness. This provides for a better eye care.

To continue, both new-comers from AOC are known to support 1920x1080 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 1000:1 static contrast, 20M:1 dynamic contrast, 170/160 degrees viewing angles, 2 ms response time (perfect for gaming and dynamic video applications), and 16.7 million of displayed colors. The connection of external devices is realized thanks to one VGA port and one HDMI with MHL support. The latter allows Android-based devices to …

Thecus Company introduced a new naming scheme for products

Company Thecus decided to introduce a new naming scheme for its drives, so that users can easily understand its product line. New names will have all future models.

In the name with length of five to seven characters will be encoded some information about the device. The first letter indicates the type of device: N — NAS running Linux, D — DAS, W — NAS running Windows, V — NVR. This is followed by a two-digit number indicating the number of disks (compartments for storage) in the system. If this amount is less than 10, the first zero is omitted. Fourth and fifth digit is coded by the hardware platform used. For example, 21 — Cavium Econa, 31 — Marvell Armada, 51 — Intel Atom Cedarview, 52 — Intel EvanSport, 53 — Intel Atom third-generation, 81 — Sandy Bridge, 82 — Ivy Bridge, 83 — Other Platforms future generations. On the sixth position, which is reserved for future needs, zero is registered. If the system is performed in rack format, the model name is …
