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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
