    I know some of you would love having this in your home racks but this is for you enterprise guys.  Seagate has just announced the 5U84 which can hold 1.0PB of data in a small enclosure.

    Key Features:

    • 5U rack-mount enclosure stores up to 8 petabytes of data per rack

    • Efficient power conversion

    • Up to 84 3.5” SAS hard disk drives or solid state drives per 5U enclosure

    • Drawer design provides extremely high density per rack unit

    • Easy access to hot swap drives

    • Expansion capability up to 336 drives

    • Dual 12Gb SAS I/O modules with integral data path redundancy for high-availability

    • Dual controller configuration that supports multiple chassis, which lowers SKUs and complex configuration issues

    • Unparalleled optimization and reliability

    • Ultra high performance of 600K IOPS at 1ms latency for 2U24 AFA configurations at 1ms latency for near instantaneous access to data

    Quote

    A recent study by IDC and Seagate showed that by 2025 the global datasphere could grow to a staggering 163 zettabytes, with enterprises being responsible for creating 60% of this data. With the sheer volume of data forecasted to be created over the coming years, businesses are looking for a way to solve their capacity needs without having to sacrifice on space. The 5U84 system delivers just that, a space-conscious storage model that packs up to 1.0 PB of raw storage capacity into a single chassis, which is expertly designed to occupy only five data center rack units. Hosting 84 drive bays that are rigorously tested to function with 8, 10, and even 12 TB drives, the product density of the 5U84 allows for a large quantity of data to be stored in a smaller space. Due to the 5U84’s density, the cost of floor space is reduced, along with heating, cooling and maintenance.

     

    Stay tuned to this blog as I will catch up with Seagate at CES 2018 to find out more.

    • OMG I'm watching HGTV off of my HDHomeRun Connect!
      I just subscribed to HD HomeRun Premium TV to see what it is all about.  Hello, I'm watching HGTV now!  Over ten years cutting the cord and this is a first.  All of those years have been with SiliconDust and the HDHR.  I had the older white ones with two coax inputs and I recall the move to the newer unit with only a single coax input as mind blowing!  I had two of the older ones so coax and splitters were a big mess.  Now, I have OTA and a good handful of cable channels.  I'm configuring it on Plex as I type this up.

    • Microsoft announced a new Surface device last night, the Surface Go.  The announcement felt forced as leaks were dropping all over the place so it looks like the Surface Team just said, "what the heck," post it! 
       
      It's a confusing addition to the family. Remember Surface 3?  The Go is a much improved device but I'll have to get my hands on it in order to fully judge it.  I loved the 3 and still own it with a dock.
       
      It starts at $399 which is great but the hardware is a bit limited at that price point.  It starts with the Pentium Gold 4415y processor. Here is a comparison to show you some characteristics versus the Core i3. It also starts at 4Gb of RAM and a 64Gb eMMC drive.  It's only 1.15 pounds and will have LTE options in the future.
       
      I've read a ton of posts on this device where there is "target market" confusion.  Read it for yourself straight from Microsoft's mouth. "Empower your workforce with the lightest, most compact Surface yet"

       
       
      Here is the announcement post - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-go
       
      Most articles are comparing it to iPad's and Chromebooks and although i think it will be a good alternative to the Chromebook I don't think it is a direct compare to the iPad nor targeting it.  I think it is a build that came from direct feedback from the working market.  A light portable with pen ability that doesn't cost $1500 if it is dropped. Pretty simple.
       

       
      My biggest disappointment is the keyboard.  Yup, gotta add $99 if you don't want to type on glass.
       
      Will enthusiasts buy it? Couch PC? Reader by the bed?  This little Surface has a lot of merit on paper so we will see how it holds up when it ships on August 2nd.  Let me know down below if you are going to get one.

      This one is new to me but the coin is not.  BAT Coin may sound funny but it is a serious "ALT" coin.
