Hitachi's new modular system provides an SAS foundation

Hitachi Data Systems introduced enhancements across hardware and software to its Adaptable Modular Storage 2000 family. "The Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage 2000 family has the capability to manage extremely complex tasks and enables a level of operational efficiencies not found in other modular storage products," said Mike Walkey, Senior Vice President of Global Channels, Hitachi Data Systems.

As part of the Hitachi Storage Solutions portfolio, the Adaptable Modular Storage 2000 family delivers features such as symmetrical active-active controllers and a SAS backplane. Enhancements to the storage platform include a high density storage expansion tray and a dynamic provisioning software.

According to Hitachi, the 8Gb/sec fiber Channel (FC) host ports incorporated in the data storage system will help connect the latest generation of host bus adapters and switches for the maximum throughput and connectivity on Adaptable Modular Storage 2300 and 2500 systems. The Adaptable Modular Storage 2500DC and the NEBS Level-3 Compliant Switch, Hitachi claims, helps improve the reliability of the systems.

As part of its security enhancements, Adaptable Modular Storage reportedly includes features such as external authentication and Common Criteria Certification.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
