Posted by News Room On Tuesday, September 29, 2015 0 comments
ADATA Technology  launched Premier DDR4 2133 SO-DIMM memory, optimized for best performance with new Intel® Skylake processors and their chipsets, as well as the Haswell-E platform. ADATA is keen to expand DDR4 adoption and encourage the move to a new generation of DRAM on notebooks, as DDR4 offers outstanding performance and greater power efficiency, assured by meticulous ADATA testing and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
ADATA Premier DDR4 2133 SO-DIMM modules are offered in 4GB and 8GB densities, both clocked to a high speed 2133MHz. This represents a performance boost over DDR3, which on notebooks has typically been clocked at 1333MHz or 1600MHz. DDR4 therefore brings a new phase in computer memory performance and just as with desktop PCs, ADATA believes notebook users stand to gain much by choosing DDR4. This applies to new notebooks that ship with DDR4 and importantly as an upgrade option for notebooks that are compatible with DDR4 but purchased with DDR3 for cost reasons. ADATA encourages users to upgrade to DDR4 to enjoy the benefits of this essential technological advancement in personal computing.
DDR4 provides even more tangible benefits on portable PCs than on desktops. Since it delivers more computing power for lower energy draw, DDR4 increases performance while extending battery life and usage range. Premier DDR4 2133 SO-DIMM modules run 1.2V compared to 1.35V on DDR3 modules, a 20% reduction in consumption. This translates into considerably longer battery life per charge, and thus overall lower energy demand and environmental impact.
Microsoft announced the availability of Microsoft Azure services via local datacenter regions in India. As the first public cloud provider from India, Microsoft has opened three new regions – Central India in Pune, South India in Chennai, and West India in Mumbai. Governments, large businesses, small and medium businesses (SMBs) and citizens can use the massive computing power now available locally to fuel India’s inclusive growth, spur innovation and accelerate digital transformation.
In the words of Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India, “The Microsoft cloud in India will transform the way computing is done in the country.  The hyper-scale cloud will empower governments, businesses and users and offer enough computing power that will support all their existing workloads. We are happy to partner with Government and businesses to make the Microsoft cloud work for India and for Indians.”
Built on foundational principles of security, privacy & control, compliance and transparency, Microsoft cloud services are designed to enable individuals and organizations to achieve more.In addition to the Microsoft Azure services launching today, Office 365 services are slated for availability in October 2015, with Dynamics CRM Online services to follow in the first half of 2016.
Millions of users in India are already using Microsoft cloud services leading to the cloud business growing by more than 100 percent year on year over the past two years.  With the local cloud services, regulated industries such as BFSI, government departments and state-owned enterprises will now be able to leverage public cloud services and be able to take advantage of local data residency. In addition, businesses that deal with large amounts of data e.g. media companies, will benefit from data replication in multiple regions within India for backup and recovery, reduced network distance, lower latency, and the option of a private connection to the cloud.
Microsoft local cloud services are well-suited for governments and businesses that already have significant investments in owned IT infrastructure.  They will now be able to extend their existing IT infrastructure and private clouds to Microsoft local (public) cloud, thereby creating compelling hybrid cloud scenarios and reducing their cost of IT operations significantly.  The impact on citizens is expected to be all the more significant as it will accelerate e-governance and roll-out of citizen services at unprecedented scale and speed by governments, thereby accelerating the governments’ Digital India and Smart Cities programs.
Newer and transformational scenarios of computing will also be possible.  With the assurance of local data residency, programs like digital lockers and digital identity will also move quickly and enable better citizen services.

Oracle Announces New All Flash FS1 Storage System

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
With Superior Flash Performance, Scalability and Unique Co-engineering, Oracle All Flash FS1 Tops EMC XtremIO across Multiple Concurrent Mixed Workloads
Oracle expanded its flash storage portfolio with the announcement of an all-flash model of its Oracle FS1 Flash Storage System. Available now, the new Oracle All Flash FS1 Storage System delivers superior flash performance, capacity scaling, and flash provisioning and is designed to handle concurrent mixed workloads, such as OLTP and high-speed data backup, in enterprise SAN environments as well as in private or public clouds. It delivers up to 64 all-flash domains for highly-secure data isolation in multitenant cloud environments, I/O prioritization based on business value, scales to nearly 1 PB of raw flash capacity, and goes from pallet to power-on in less than 30 minutes.
All Flash FS1 demonstrates superior I/O performance and low latency with minimal falloff. Tests performed for customers show sub-one millisecond latency when running simultaneous workloads across small to large block sizes with up to 8x faster IOPS and 9.7x faster write throughput than EMC XtremIO. As a result, All Flash FS1 can reduce Oracle Database I/O wait times and effectively give customers back time for projects that can help drive a company’s top-line growth and bottom-line savings.
Oracle All Flash FS1 is the only all-flash storage system co-engineered with Oracle Database and Applications and delivers net incremental business benefits to customers when deployed with Oracle software, from industry-leading data compression to one-click application provisioning. All Flash FS1 is uniquely able to take advantage of Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression, available only to Oracle Storage, the most advanced data reduction technology in the industry. Hybrid Columnar Compression typically delivers a 10:1 compression ratio, nearly twice the data reduction usually obtained with deduplication techniques, reducing storage capacity requirements and accelerating Oracle Database queries. While encrypted Oracle Database data can’t be deduplicated, it can be compressed with Hybrid Columnar Compression, providing significantly higher levels of security to customers and maintaining Oracle Database best practices.
All Flash FS1 also features Flash Profiles, which provide pre-tuned and optimized provisioning profiles for Oracle Database and enterprise applications to simplify and accelerate flash storage provisioning and application deployment. As the industry’s best all-flash scale up two-node system, Oracle All Flash FS1 can support hundreds of Oracle databases—all in flash.
“High latency has impacted customers on shared storage platforms for years, slowing down OLTP response times and preventing mixed workloads from running at full speed. Customers are looking to flash to address these issues,” said Mike Workman, senior vice president, Flash Storage Systems, Oracle. “Oracle All Flash FS1 dramatically reduces I/O wait times typically seen in today’s highly virtualized, transaction-driven enterprises where low latency is critical to response time. This superior performance combined with unique features, such as Flash Domains and Flash Profiles, make the All Flash FS1 the platform for customers who want to significantly accelerate their applications in SAN and secure cloud environments.”
“Oracle practitioners in our community expect the highest levels of data integrity and security coupled with predictable performance,” said David Vellante, chief research officer, Wikibon. “Products such as the All Flash FS1 are riding the flash price/performance curve and promise to deliver dramatically lower latency and consistent response times at an affordable price. This can significantly reduce the effort required to deliver what are often among the most stringent service level requirements in IT.”
“With their introduction of the Oracle All Flash FS1, which was engineered from the ground up to maximize Oracle Database performance and scale, Oracle enters the ranks of what IDC defines as the ‘true All Flash Array (AFA) vendors’,” said Eric Burgener, research director, Storage, IDC.  “AFAs feature unique designs that are specifically optimized for flash media, delivering more consistent performance across their entire throughput range than Hybrid Flash Arrays, and making them the storage platform of choice for application environments that demand the highest levels of performance.”

We are glad to bring in this championship for passionate gamers because we believe it gives them an opportunity to showcase their skills as well as offer them a chance to win big money.”
Lin added that since India does not have many gaming tournaments, the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup strives to give passionate gamers a chance to realise their potential and encourages them to take it to the next level.
Echoing Lin’s thoughts is Sunil Grewal, a Director at Gigabyte Technology (India) Pvt. Ltd, one of the key sponsors of the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup. Grewal said, “A few years back, gaming was just a private affair in India. But slowly we are seeing gaming events of such big scale like the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup being beamed live online, with a highly dedicated audience who wait impatiently for the occasion. This is the reason why the gaming industry in India is slowly but steadily becoming a competitive spectator sport.”
Rajeev Singh, Country Head of BenQ, another sponsor, said, “We do need more events like the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup because in India. The gaming industry is still in its nascent stages. Especially competitive gaming is yet to pick up because of a lack of good tournaments. We are happy to be associated with the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup because it is a great opportunity for gamers.”
Rounak Sen, Captain of the winning team Neck Break, said, “Winning felt good, as it had a good prize pool. It felt great to be a part of TE Gaming Cup. The entire set up of the event was very grooving. We are looking forward for TE Gaming Cup 2016″.
