    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.

    • 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

    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.

    Funny, I saw this and thought a new NAS product. Wrong.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!
       

       
      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
