Intel expands storage component offering

Intel expanded its line of components for storage products on Monday, announcing a serial ATA controller, an iSCSI storage adapter and a low-voltage Celeron processor.

The new Intel 31244 serial ATA controller can transfer data at 1.5G bits per second (bps) on each of its four ports. The controller, which links a system's motherboard with a hard disk drive, improves performance in NAS (network attached storage) devices and RAID systems, according to an Intel statement.

The Intel PRO/1000 T IP iSCSI adapter is meant for SANs (storage area network). The adapter uses Intel's Xscale processor technology to take over IP (Internet Protocol) and iSCSI tasks from the host processor, which increases throughput in SANs, according to Intel.

Intel also announced a version of its Celeron processor that does not need extensive cooling and can thus be fitted in small storage devices. The 400MHz ULV (ultra low voltage) Celeron processor dissipates 4.1 watts of heat, Intel said.

Available in the first quarter of 2003, the 31244 serial ATA controller will cost US$22 in 10,000-unit quantities and the iSCSI $695 in single units. The ULV Celeron processor at 400MHz is now available for $38 when bought in quantities of 1,000, Intel said.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
