Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory
technology, today launched the 850 PRO, a new solid state drive (SSD)
line-up featuring Samsung’s cutting-edge three-dimensional (3D) vertical
NAND (V-NAND) flash memory technology. The new Samsung 850 PRO, unveiled
at the 2014 Samsung SSD Global Summit in Seoul, offers a new breed of
performance for solid state drives and will be available globally across
53 markets from this month.

Based on Samsung’s proprietary V-NAND technology, the new 850 PRO is
ideal for use in high-end PCs and workstations. Samsung’s V-NAND
features a proprietary vertical cell structure and represents a
breakthrough in overcoming the density limit currently facing planar
NAND architecture used in conventional flash memory, yielding
significant speed, endurance and energy efficiency improvements.
“With the new 850 PRO V-NAND SSD, Samsung is introducing the next major
evolution of SSD technology, taking the lead in delivering high-density
SSDs with outstanding endurance, performance and energy efficiency,”
said Unsoo Kim, senior vice president of branded product marketing team
at Samsung Electronics. “We are fully committed to establishing an
innovative computing environment by providing customers with
leading-edge V-NAND SSDs with unrivaled performance.”
The Samsung 850 PRO delivers blazing-fast speeds and exceptional
endurance, offering the highest level of performance among SSDs using
the SATA III (6Gb/s) interface. Its sequential read performance reaches
up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s), with write performance of up to
520MB/s. Random read performance is up to 100,000 input/output
operations-per-second (IOPS), with write speeds of up to 90,000 IOPS.
The drive also offers a Dynamic Thermal Guard feature, which maintains
ambient temperature while operating and prevents potential data loss
The Samsung 850 PRO will be available in 128 gigabyte (GB), 256GB, 512GB
and 1 terabyte (TB) storage capacities.
With the accelerating consumer adoption of SSDs, Samsung anticipates
that its new V-NAND SSDs will add to the growth of the branded SSD
market with its outstanding performance.
According to the April 4, 2014, “Gartner Forecast Analysis: NAND,
Worldwide, 1Q14 Update”1, the global SSD market is expected
to rapidly increase from US $11.04 billion in revenues in 2013 to
approximately US $14.47 billion in 2014 and US $23.54 billion in 2017.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction of desired change. Renowned for its approach to leadership and emphasis on their people, organizations increasingly look to our military for insight into these challenges.

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation. Both buyers and sellers want instant results, and from paperwork to paperless to mindless is the ultimate goal for any seamless transaction. The sweetest sweet spot in innov...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
