Emerson Network Power Launches Trellis Process Manager

Posted by News Room On Monday, March 31, 2014 0 comments
Emerson Network Power announced the availability of the Trellis Process Manager, offering data center managers an easy-to-use, automated workflow manager. The new Trellis™ module creates, tracks and provides views on data center workflow allowing organizations to improve the execution and efficiency of standard data center processes. Combined with the other modules of the complete Trellis DCIM solution, Trellis Process Manager also allows users to immediately see the impact of proposed changes on the data center, improving costs and efficiencies by enabling accurate planning.
“Data from our December 2013 Datacenter Survey on DCIM shows that nearly 50 percent of respondents identified human error as a cause of downtime in their organizations,” said Jennifer Koppy, research manager, IDC. “When we looked specifically at large data centers (more than 20,000 square feet), 70 percent identified human error as a cause of downtime. This data suggests that a solution that automates critical data center activities, such as the Trellis Process Manager, is very much needed in the marketplace.”
The Trellis Process Manager enforces a process, including necessary approvals for making changes to the data center infrastructure. It contains four out-of-the-box templates for core data center processes – installing, moving, decommissioning and renaming devices – to ensure best practices are followed when making changes on the data center floor. Actions within these processes cannot be performed without the correct approvals, and all tasks are automatically assigned and delays escalated to the correct person or team. After tasks are completed, the Trellis Process Manager automatically updates the data center plan, ensuring the DCIM plan is always accurate. The templates can be customized as needed to reflect the organization’s workflow.

WD introduced its new My Cloud family of personal cloud solutions. WD’s My Cloud is a complete solution for users to organize, centralize and secure the digital content from all of their computers and mobile devices and access those files from any device, from anywhere in the world. By simply connecting a My Cloud personal cloud drive to the Internet, consumers get the anywhere, any-device access they can get from the public cloud, without having to pay monthly fees or giving up control of their personal data.
“With thousands of files spread across several different computing devices, digital chaos is a challenge that consumers face on a daily basis,” said Khalid Wani, Sales Director, Branded Products, India, Middle East & Africa. “Consumers want access to all their data, all the time. WD’s My Cloud personal cloud storage is an easy-to-use, secure and cost effective storage solution that will empower consumers to live their digital lives without limits.”
Research firm Gartner estimates that the average household will own approximately 3.3 terabytes (TB) of digital content by 20161. In line with this growth of digital content is the increase in the number of Internet connected devices in India. The convergence of rapid content and device growth requires a new storage paradigm that gives consumers complete control over their digital lives. Personal cloud storage is the new standard, allowing users to keep media and files safe at home on their own physical drive and then access them over the Internet with any PC or Mac computer or on tablets and smartphones through mobile apps. Using My Cloud, users can share files, stream media and access content anywhere with no monthly fees and feel secure in the knowledge that their cloud resides in their own home under their exclusive control.
“Families are connecting, sharing, syncing, and backing-up numerous mobile devices and computers in their household, with the amount of digital data being created on these devices growing dramatically,” said Liz Conner, Senior Research Analyst, Storage Systems, IDC. “Personal cloud is an ideal solution to simplify the complex issue of organizing digital files across various devices so that users can enjoy their digital videos, photos and music on all of their devices.”
Available for iOS and Android devices, the new WD My Cloud mobile app allows users to view photos, stream video and access their files from anywhere on their smartphones or tablets. The mobile app also makes file sharing and collaborating simple and secure, allowing customers to easily email files, share files as a link, and print and open files with third party apps.
Additionally, the My Cloud mobile app integrates major public cloud services so that customers can easily transfer files between their Dropbox, SkyDrive and Google Drive public cloud accounts.

Transcend Launches SDXC/SDHC UHS-I Speed Class 3 Cards

Posted by News Room On Monday, March 24, 2014 0 comments
Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend) is proud to announce its launch of SDXC/SDHC UHS-I cards featuring full support for the Ultra High Speed Class 3 (U3) specification. Capable of reaching incredible read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 85MB/s, Transcend’s SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3 cards provide the performance necessary to harness the full power of UHS U3-compliant digital recording equipment.
Recently released by the SD Association, the Ultra High Speed Class 3 specification guarantees a minimum constant write speed of 30MB/s to facilitate cinema-quality video recording. Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 and SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3X “Extreme” cards, however, can achieve at least double this performance with blazing-fast write speeds of up to 60MB/s and 85MB/s respectively. When used with today’s advanced camcorders, such as the Sony  4K Handycam  FDR-AX100, Panasonic  Lumix  DMC-GH4, and Canon  EOS  C500 Cinema Camera, these cards ensure smooth 4K video capture in stunning color and clarity.
In devices that do not support the UHS-I specification, Transcend’s SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3 cards offer constant write speeds of at least 10MB/s (SD Speed Class 10 performance), which makes them perfect for Full HD video recording as well as fast-action consecutive shooting. Pairing the new UHS-I U3 cards with Transcend’s RDF8 USB 3.0 multi-card reader or the handy RDF5 USB 3.0 card reader with built-in USB port significantly reduces the time it takes to transfer data from card to computer with read speeds of up to 95MB/s.
Featuring capacities ranging from 32GB to an enormous 128GB, Transcend’s UHS-I U3 memory cards are fully equipped to handle the increased capacity requirements of professional photography and filmmaking. For instance, the 128GB SDXC UHS-I U3 card can store more than 20,000 high-resolution JPEG images (12 megapixel camera, 6MB file size), over 8,500 RAW images (based on 14MB file size), or a full 8 hours of 4K Ultra High-Definition footage (4096×2160 35Mb/s H.264 AVC compression). Moreover, Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 cards make extended video recording sessions possible thanks to the use of the exFAT file system that allows users to exceed the 4GB size per file limit of FAT32.
