Hitachi Data Systems introduces HFS A series family

Customisable solution designed for virtual desktop, virtual server real-time analytics and database environments

Information storage and virtualisation company, and wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has added the Hitachi Flash Storage (HFS) A series family to its flash portfolio.

HDS claimed the simplified appliance package is easy to deploy and offers data optimisation technologies for business insights and services delivery across a variety of workloads.

The company said selectable data services include inline data deduplication and compression, thin provisioning, snapshots, replication and data encryption.

HDS also said the updated features enables customisation between turning on or off the inline data de-duplication or compression based on application requirements for a balanced mix between performance and efficiency.

As a result, space can be saved by allocating capacity on demand with thin provisioning technology.

Hitachi Data Systems vice-president of infrastructure platforms, solutions and Cloud, Miklos Sandorfi, said, “Hitachi has delivered a full portfolio of optimised flash solutions bound together by a software-defined approach to storage infrastructure.”

“This gives customers the ability to optimise solutions for a particular set of use cases while getting the power and efficiencies of common management, workflows and policies across their infrastructure,” he added.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.

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!

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.
