Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE:ODP), a leading global provider of office
products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office
Depot and OfficeMax, today announced its expanded partnership with
Samsung to bring the latest in wireless printing and tablet technology,
including mobile device printing and HDTV-quality screens, into Office
Depot and OfficeMax retail locations nationwide and online at www.officedepot.com
To meet consumers’ need for cutting-edge mobile lifestyles, Samsung
created a range of printer options with Near Field Communication (NFC)
technology that makes wireless printing as simple as tapping a
smartphone or tablet to connect the printer, allowing everyone to stay
connected and productive wherever they go.
“A partnership with Samsung is a perfect pairing, and more importantly,
a natural extension to our long-standing commitment to offering the best
and most innovative products,” said Randy Wick, senior vice president of
merchandising for Office Depot, Inc. “In addition to providing
high-quality products, we strive to help streamline the fast-paced lives
of our customers, especially small to medium-sized business owners, with
technology that can simplify their everyday tasks.”
New Samsung SMART printers, which are sold exclusively at Office Depot
and OfficeMax, include:
Multifunction Xpress C460FW ($399.99):
With 4-in-1 functionality, including print, copy, scan and fax, the
compact color laser printer can handle everything with the greatest of
ease and get the job done in a snap. The printer’s ultra-small footprint
means it fits virtually anywhere in a home or small office and its
one-touch wireless setup helps save time.
Printer Xpress C1810W ($299.99):
Featuring print speeds up to 19 pages per minute (ppm), the latest image
processing and polymerized toner formulation, along with Samsung’s
easy-to-use functionality and eco-conscious printing options makes the
Xpress a great choice for personal or professional use.
Printer Xpress M2020W and Multifunction M2070FW ($129.99, $209.99)
To make sure the job gets done in a breeze, the Xpress Printer and
Multifunction options offer fast print speeds up to 21 ppm and are
Google Cloud Print-ready to print from anywhere with an internet
connection. To save more than time, these printers include an Easy Eco
Driver to help save up to 20 percent on toner.
In addition to the exclusive Samsung printers, Office Depot and
OfficeMax will also add Samsung’s two newest Galaxy Tab S tablets
to its offerings. Available in 8.4 and 10.5-inch screens for $399.99 and
$499.99, respectively, both tablets include cutting-edge features for
the best experience:
Super AMOLED® displays with crystal-clear 4 million-pixel
picture quality brings entertainment alive with more vivid colors, a
clearer contrast and resolution that is two times the quality of an
Multi Window™ function allows everyone to make the most of
their screens by using side-by-side apps with the ability to drag
content from one app to the other.
Ultra Power Saving Mode and the Fingerprint Scanner let
users shut off nonessential apps to maximize battery life or quickly
secure their tablets with the swipe of a finger whenever they need it

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
