SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - December 7, 2005 - A variety of new content delivery options for the home are creating tumultuous times for the movie industry, reports In-Stat. While standard-definition DVD sales are still going well, that market is likely nearing its peak, the high-tech market research firm says. What's more, it's unclear how alternative delivery systems will impact the changing home entertainment landscape and DVD sales. A recent report by In-Stat found the following:
  • By 2009, In-Stat forecasts a worldwide retail value of US$50 Billion for annual sales of Hollywood video content sold at retail.
  • By 2009, 41% of US TV Households will be watching movies on HDTV displays.
  • DVD players that support HDMI deliver High Definition quality today, so next-generation High Definition optical products will need to provide "something more".
  • The intense media interest in next-generation optical disc formats is selling lots of magazines, but will not have much impact on the Hollywood "packaged goods" business until late in the decade.
"The migration to next-generation High Definition optical disc formats is not going smoothly," says Gerry Kaufhold, In-Stat analyst. "The PC industry is chomping at the bit to provide downloaded movies that might compete with DVD sales, and Pay-TV services want to add movies to their Video-On-Demand services, to their new disk-drive-equipped set top boxes, and to their emerging HDTV services." ...In-Stat profile, CD-RW & DVD-RW

SAN FRANCISCO - December 7, 2005 - SANRAD Inc today announced the general availability of its iSCSI-based Global Data Replication and Recovery solution. It's a turnkey hardware-software package combining the iSCSI V-Switch and the company's embedded StoragePro software. Data is replicated between any primary site to one or more secondary sites over standard copper or optical IP networks. Both one-to-one and many-to-one replication operations are supported, allowing organizations with multiple satellite offices to replicate data to a central data center.

"The ability to quickly recover from a man-made or natural disaster is of primary concern for many organizations looking to safeguard their business critical information," said Zophar Santé, SANRAD VP of Market Development. "But quite often IT executives have found themselves unable to implement a comprehensive solution due to the cost and complexity of traditional DR solutions. Our solution enables companies to utilize IP SANs to deploy cost-effective remote replication for complete data protection and site recovery." ...SANRAD profile, iSCSI


Orange, Calif. - December 7, 2005 - Apace Systems Corp and Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. announced that they are offering an end-to-end 10GbE connectivity solution for multi-platform video editing and post-production workgroups. A complete 10GbE work flow demonstrating Apace Systems, Fujitsu and 10GbE NIC partners will be on display this week at DV Expo West 2005 in Los Angeles..

"Shared and low latency video access, editing, archive and real-time playback of uncompressed High Definition video is an issue for post-production market, forcing the user to consider video editing tasks only in the confines of individual workstations with dedicated SCSI or Fibre Channel storage, hampering collaborative editing," said Jeanclaude Toma, Apace systems Executive Vice President. "We at Apace believe that the solution is not dedicated storage or still limited and proprietary SAN connectivity, but to scale up the GigE LAN to 10GbE connectivity and offer a 10X access of end-to-end high performance connectivity for all video centric applications."

Video editors can use Apace's network storage systems with up to 14TB per chassis of RAID protected SATA HDD based storage and 10GbE connectivity, for push/pull and real-time playback of content via the 10GbE fabric for uncompressed HD streams including 2K and up to 4K resolutions with a distance up to 10km radius. In addition to post-production workflows film and image scanning solutions can make use of the immense storage and network throughput offered through this solution. ...Apace Systems profile, ...Fujitsu profile, Storage Events, InfiniBand


SUNNYVALE, Calif. - December 7, 2005 - M-Systems today announced DOC H3 - its next generation DiskOnChip architecture - aimed at memory-hungry devices such as multimedia mobile handsets, digital music players, GPS devices, portable media players and car infotainment systems.

Engineering samples of DOC H3 will be available in the first quarter of 2006, with availability for mass production planned for the second quarter. It will be available in densities of 128M to 2G in 9x12 and 12x18 FBGA packages. ...M-Systems profile, storage chips


MILPITAS, Calif. - December 7, 2005 - Maxtor Corporation and Adaptec Inc. have collaborated to help simplify deployment of new Serial Attached SCSI technology for system builders and resellers through extensive compatibility testing and the distribution of a special SAS evaluation kit to a select group of integrators worldwide. Included in the kit are Maxtor Atlas SAS hard disk drives with the Adaptec Serial Attached SCSI RAID 4800SAS and 4805SAS controllers and the Adaptec Storage Enclosure 335SAS. As a result, several resellers, including Rackable Systems, ZT Group and Colfax, have begun actively qualifying the products with workstations and servers in order to deliver next generation storage solutions to their customers.

According to Colfax International CEO Guatam Shah, "Any time you get something new in technology, it's like someone's given you a piece of Swiss chocolate and told you it's better than regular chocolate. Is SAS really better or is the industry just telling us it is? In this case, SAS delivers by offering the enterprise performance and reliability of SCSI with the capacity and price point of SATA. The combination of Maxtor and Adaptec SAS technology beat our expectations in performance, reliability and ease of deployment. We're excited to start selling next generation SAS solutions." ...Adaptec profile, ...Maxtor profile, Serial Attached SCSI

TOKYO, JAPAN - December 6, 2005 - FalconStor Software, Inc. today announced that SOFTBANK IDC Corp. and Triangle Spirit have teamed to launch a disaster recovery services center in Japan. Utilizing their collective resources, the organizations will provide a cost effective solution for the SMB segment. The FalconStor PrimeVault model provides customers with instant contingency planning - each customer is equipped with either FalconStor DiskSafe or FileSafe software for their local machines to drive fast backup to an appliance pre-loaded with FalconStor iSCSI storage software (also provided as part of the service) at their site. Data is then remotely replicated by the iSCSI appliance to the SOFTBANK IDC and Triangle Spirit facility, without any impact to the business' production environment. The DR facility provides a solution where the customer does not need to be concerned with the tediousness of backup operations, and can recover its data far more easily and smoothly compared to a traditional DR system.

"Japan, especially Tokyo and Yokohama, is thought to be the high risk area in terms of disaster, at 7.1 times worse than Los Angeles, and 7.7 times worse than Osaka and Kobe," said Toru Hirai, CEO of Triangle Spirit. "FalconStor's IPStor solution provides a perfect and timely method to address the market for disaster recovery, especially with the recent Japanese government announcements of a business continuity guideline and its metropolitan area plan for government and financial institutions in case of large earthquakes." ...FalconStor profile, Storage VARs in Japan, online backup


Editor:- December 5, 2005 - Quantum has, at last, woken up to the security threats faced by users of tape backup media, and today announced plans to do something about it. ...Well that's not exactly how they put it. Their own words can be seen by clicking the link above and lower down (in the next paragraph). Throughout 2005 STORAGEsearch's readers have been entertained and concerned by the many stories about tape security lapses which have been sent to the press by vendors of disk to disk backup and storage security products. You can't blame tape companies for not anticipating the needs of their customers. The further ahead they look - the less of a future they see for their products.

Quantum... "Quantum's initial security offerings (in Q1 2006) will include DLTSage Tape Security, a unique solution designed to prevent unauthorized access to data on tape cartridges that will be particularly valuable in protecting tapes that must be transported offsite. At no additional cost to customers, this feature will be provided in the company's newest DLT tape drives and supported in its tape automation systems. DLTSage Tape Security will also serve as a complement to other elements of Quantum's security framework, including a new strategic partnership with Decru and native encryption on Quantum's DLT tape drives." ...Quantum profile, Tape drives

read the article - Why are Most Analysts  Wrong About Solid State Disks?
Most analysts and editors of other computer publications don't really understand the solid state disk market. They show their ignorance and naivete by prefacing every discussion of SSDs with a superficial analysis which compares the cost per byte of storage between flash and hard disk drives. That's the wrong answer to the wrong question. And it's far removed from why the SSD market is racing to become a multi billion dollar market seemingly in blithe ignorance of the cost per byte proposition.

Virtual Tape: Can You Afford to Ignore It? - article by MaXXan Systems

Network connected disk to disk backup systems for the enterprise have come a long way since the first pioneering products started to appear in the pages of STORAGEsearch.com in the late 1990s.

Some of the growing sophistication in the market can be seen by the way that the marketing terminology has morphed from the early D2d (let's kill tape backup), via D2D2T (let's be friends with tape / peaceful coexistence) to the current VTL (Virtual Tape Library - let's just see if they notice that it's more reliable and works faster - and don't tell them that there isn't a tape in the box) type of approaches.

But if you think that speed, reliability and cost are the only things you need to know about the "virtual" versus "real" tape library argument - take a look at this comprehensive article from MaXXan Systems which shows there are a lot more benefits than that. ...read the article, ...MaXXan profile, Disk to disk backup

Increasing Flash Solid State Disk Reliability - article by SiliconSystems

Solid state disks, based on flash technology, have greatly improved in performance in recent years and now compete head to head with RAM based accelerator systems. Flash also has significant advatanges in servers compared to RAM SSDs due to low power consumption.

But if you think that all solid state disks which use flash are equally reliable and enduring then think again.

That's a bit like saying that a Mercedes 300SL sports coupe is as tough as a Tiger tank because both were made in Germany and both are built out of metal. But as Oddball (Donald Sutherland) says in the movie Kelly's Heroes "I ain't messing with no Tigers."

This article by SiliconSystems, shows how their patented architecture cleverly manages the wear out mechanisms inherent in all flash media to deliver a disk lifetime that is about 4 times greater than of other enterprise flash products and upto 100 times greater than intrinsic flash memory. ...read the article, ...SiliconSystems profile, Solid state disks
