As annual storage growth rates continue to climb, issues such as rising power consumption, inefficiencies stemming from storing duplicate data files and the lack of budgeted expenditures for data storage are negatively impacting network storage environments at companies around the globe, according to results of an independent survey released today by Storewiz Inc., (San Jose, Calif.)
Manufactures are addressing these needs with a new crop of storage solutions.
ACT/Technico (Warminster, Pa.) now offers a removable PMC storage solution that enables the quick and easy removal of vital data for safe keeping without requiring removal of the host board.
The new PMC ShuttleStor is a two-part mezzanine consisting of a shuttle and a receiving canister. The canister mounts to the host board, allowing easy insertion and removal of the storage shuttle through the host front panel. The design of the PMC ShuttleStor is compatible with both rotating and solid state ATA drives in standard form factors of 1.8 inches (7 mm) and 2.5 inches (9.5 mm). www.acttech
Aitech Defense Systems, Inc., (Chatsworth, Calif.), now offers a high density PMC that provides up to 64 GB of NAND Flash memory in two banks with DMAC. With its new FPGA-based DMA controllers, the enhanced M222 provides sustained data transfer rates of over 45 MB per second as well as a low power consumption of less than 7 watts. Designed for high-speed read, write and erase performance, the M222 is suitable for high-density, local data storage applications such as detailed tactical area maps, large databases, compressed storage of radar or sonar images and software programmable radio ELINT data or other graphics. www.rugged.com.
Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, Calif.) introduces its first digitizer from the Acqiris product line. The Acqiris DP1400 high-speed digitizer features a compact design and highly integrated technology for extremely low power consumption as well as a simultaneous multibuffer acquisition and readout (SAR) mode that significantly improves measurement throughput.
