The NeoSapphire 3602 is an all-flash array that offers dual-port 16G Fibre Channel and up to 2TB of usable storage capacity in a compact 1U rackmount form factor. For enterprises, the NeoSapphire 3602 increases employee productivity, shortens application processing time, and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO).

“The SPC rankings are an important reference point for our industry and various enterprises, as they provide an independent measure of quality that buyers can trust,” said AccelStor Vice President, Dr. Weafon Tsao. “We at AccelStor are proud to have our product ranked amongst the very best in the world for the SPC-1 benchmark. This SPC-1 Result is a strong validation of our commitment to providing quality products and powerful product performance.”

Proven Storage Performance

The NeoSapphire 3602 delivered 227,970.31 SPC-1 IOPS™: excellent performance for any mission-critical application. It also achieved the outstanding SPC-1 Price-Performance of $0.20/SPC-1 IOPS™, ranking the product #3 in the SPC-1 “Top Ten” of Price-Performance. The results prove that NeoSapphire 3602 is a great solution for database and VDI applications in budget-conscious SMBs. The SPC-1 benchmark measures the performance of a storage subsystem in business critical applications that rely heavily on random I/O queries and updates. Applications include online transaction processing (OLTP), database operations, and mail servers. The SPC-1 benchmark results can be seen at:

Suitable for Demanding Storage Applications

The NeoSapphire 3602's superior read and write performance helps resolve storage bottlenecks, while the low latency and high reliability of the Fibre Channel interface makes this new array ideal for demanding, time-sensitive applications including banking and finance. Hot-swappable drives and dual redundant power supplies make the arrays even more reliable. A dual-port 16G Fibre Channel – backwards compatible with 8G – makes this array easy to integrate into existing SANs. The array has space for ten hot-swappable drives.

Response time/throughput data from the SPC-1 benchmark tests show that the NeoSapphire 3602's write response time was 0.46ms, even when the array handles the benchmark’s maximum throughput/IOPS at the 100% load point. This responsive performance demonstrates the NeoSapphire 3602's suitability for transaction time-sensitive applications, such as databases and virtualization.

Sustained Performance and Reliability

AccelStor emphasizes redundancy and seamless uptime, employing multiple data paths as well as redundant and hot-swappable components for data protection. The NeoSapphire 3602's enterprise SSDs boost reliability, availability, and scalability. Meanwhile, Fibre Channel multipathing supports I/O load balancing and failover.

The NeoSapphire 3602 is powered by AccelStor's exclusive FlexiRemap technology for reliability and sustained performance even in random-access scenarios demanded by enterprise applications. FlexiRemap minimizes overhead and extends SSD lifespan by greatly reducing the number of write/erase operations. To avoid unnecessary operations which could shorten drive lifespan, FlexiRemap technology remaps random data writes as sequential data writes before passing them to the underlying flash memory. The global wear-leveling algorithm ensures stability and longevity. With FlexiRemap, data is protected, drive endurance is improved, and random-access speed is accelerated.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 07:00Pressemelding

Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.

Redwood Software Announces First Industry Robotic Licensing Model to Revolutionize Transparent Marketplace Pricing22.3.2018 14:59Pressemelding

Redwood Software, the pioneer behind ‘The Robotic Enterprise’, today announced the launch of a revolutionary new robotic licensing model, where customers only pay for the robotic services they consume within their business. Available now, this new licensing model allows customers to directly compare the costs of manual work against processes that are robotized. With the unique Robotic Service Charge, Redwood only charges for the delivery of a robotic service, equivalent to a unit of work that can done by a person (send an email, download a report, reconcile two reports etc.). Redwood delivers a catalogue of 35,000 of these ready built robotic services that can be linked together by business users in a visual plug and play interface. End-to-end business processes can be modelled, robotized, tested and deployed without cost and risk. Only when the robotic service is consumed is a charge made, always replacing work that would otherwise be done manually. Within the Robotic Service Charge,
