The Server Pack 35 is Acromove’s portable server family. Unique to the Server Pack 35 compared to other portable servers is that it is a hyperconverged software-defined system (SDS) that packs the biggest punch into the smallest footprint. The combination of compute, storage, and networking gives users everything they need in one portable box that is designed to work in nearly any environment. Aside from physical environment flexibility, the server is also operating-system- / software-application- agnostic.
Announced in February of this year, the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UGH-I microSDXC card is one of the world’s first 1TB microSD cards, and is quoted to be the fastest. This card is designed to address a number of issues, such as capturing and storing large files while out in the field, successfully removing the need to carry and swap multiple cards due to small capacity limitations.
The Eaton 9SX3000 is the largest model of the company’s 9SX UPS line. The 9SX UPS solutions are highlighted by their topology, internal static bypass and intuitive, slick-looking LCD menu display, as well as network, Modbus, Relay and signal input functionality for easy integration into IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications. UPS solutions are a vital part of any organization that depends on electronic equipment, as they protect them from unexpected power-related issues that might arise. This includes power failures, sags and surges, brownouts, voltage spikes, frequency variations, and harmonic distortion. Eaton’s 9SX UPS line goes the extra mile with features like double-conversion, online power protection, which is ideal for medical, light industrial, automation and mission critical IT environments.
We have come a long way from the strictly enterprise SAN devices that were firmly targeted to only those with a large budget. We now have dozens of various manufacturers that are offering low cost; high performance hardware at nearly every price point. It's possible to purchase a simple 2 bay NAS that under the hood is running the same OS as the much larger rackmount models – additionally providing many of the same features the more expensive alternative. This OS update function allows for many much older devices to benefit from feature updates, security updates and additional functionality. One of the best in the industry at being able to solve the issues faced in the home, small business or enterprise edge is QNAP with their QTS operating system.
The AFF A800 is the top-of-the-line ONTAP all-flash storage array from NetApp, which at launch offered an industry-first, end-to-end NVMe/FC over 32Gb FC, as well as 100GbE connectivity. To date, we have been working our way through the all-flash AFF lineup, starting with the potent A200 (having since been replaced by the A220) as well as the A300. Both of the units we previously reviewed won Editor’s Choice awards. Today we will be looking at the NVMe-based A800 powerhouse that offers the same ONTAP benefits of the previously reviewed models, as well as exponentially faster performance and lower latency. While this initial review focuses on system performance over Fibre Channel, subsequent articles will dive into the A800's end-to-end NVMe over Fabrics (NVMeoF) support.
The Kingston DC500R, announced in mid-March of this year, is an enterprise-grade SSD, ideal for read-intensive applications such as server boot, web serving, virtual desktop infrastructure, operational databases, and analytics. This 2.5” form factor SSD is optimized for read-intensive applications and is the first to implement Kingston’s strict QoS requirements to ensure predictable random I/O performance and low latencies over a wide range of read and write workloads.
