MACH.2 multi actuator HDD technology moves closer to market.
As cloud data centers have deployed increasingly higher-capacity hard drives, some workloads have saturated the IOPS-per-TB limitations for these high capacity devices. And as capacities keep increasing on future hard drives with the introduction of HAMR to enable higher data density on each drive platter, due to the laws of physics the increased areal densities will further reduce IOPS performance.
Seagate’s MACH.2 technology will more than offset these pressures. That means customers with data-intensive applications like online streaming and virtualization will continue to enjoy the highest levels of hard drive performance, while they keep up with the need to manage vast, ever-increasing quantities of data.
Sweeping set of new products, partnerships and community-building efforts will make it easier for enterprises to benefit from event-driven architecture.
How simplification lowers the bar for good security hygiene.
Wherever we look for evidence, it’s clear that the topic of security is consistently top-of-mind for IT organizations around the world. The media uncovers a security story with predictable regularity, so that even as consumers we’re all well aware of the ongoing tussle between those of us trying to secure infrastructure and applications, and those who seek to expose weaknesses. Looking at this positively, this ever-present reality helps minimize complacency and ensure products and apps are constantly improving.
