Case Study – How Toshiba is supporting Secure and Reliable Data Storage for a Ugandan Children’s Charity

Supporting Secure and Reliable Data Storage for a Ugandan Children’s Charity

Many of us are lucky enough to have had access to free education, benefiting from that on a daily basis as we pursue our careers and follow our dreams. But large portions of the world’s citizens lack any access to education at all. If it is available, it often has a price tag associated with it. Families are faced with a choice; not whether to send the children to school, but which of their children to send.

NTT – A playground for data centers

As the IT responsible manager of an enterprise or service provider, if you were to need to support 100 new hires per year for the next 5 years, how much more capacity and performance would you plan for? How would you implement it from the starting point of your existing infrastructure? It’s not a simple and clear calculation, and it will certainly need tuning over the period of its implementation, but a few numbers and a calculator are all that is needed to develop some rough low-end and high-end costs. And you probably have a broad idea of the suppliers you will turn to in order to implement it.

Lab Report: AIC 78-Bay Dual Expander JBOD J4078-01

4U top-loading chassis are growing in popularity for storage solutions as they offer the highest density for packing 3.5“ Enterprise Capacity HDDs. Models with 60 drive bays have been used for a while, but now models with more than 100 slots are available. One common problem is that many chassis for more than 60 drives are very long (sometimes more than 1 meter) and unable to fit into existing racks. The AIC JBOD Model J4078-01 is only 810 mm long and, while offering 78 slots, it’s one of the shortest models in this class and fits into any existing rack.
