In 2017, Intel brought to market a wide array of products designed to tackle the world’s growing stockpile of data. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich called data an “unseen driving force behind the next-generation technology revolution,” and Rob Crooke, senior vice president and general manager of the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Solutions Group at Intel, recently outlined his vision for how storage and memory technologies can address all that data. In the past year, Intel introduced new Intel® Optane™ technology-based products and will continue to deliver exciting, blazing-fast solutions based on this breakthrough technology, with announcements later this year. Intel also brought industry-leading areal density to storage for consumers and enterprises, driving both capacity and form factor innovation with Intel® 3D NAND storage products.
Intel is reimagining how data is stored for the data center. By driving the creation and adoption of compelling new form factors, like the EDSFF 1U long and 1U short, and delivering advanced materials, including our densest NAND to date with 64-layer TLC Intel 3D NAND, Intel is enabling capacities of 8TB and beyond in an array of form factors that meet the specific performance needs of data centers.Add a comment

ADATA Technology Co., Ltd., a global leader in memory products, is proud to present the HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro, two new entries in the Durable line of external hard drives. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro are based on the toughest designs, but with better specifications than ever, offering protection against dust and moisture that exceeds IP68 standards, as well as military-grade shock-proofing. This means that users can bring their hard drive anywhere without having to worry about losing data.
Triple-Layered Construction in a Stylish Package
The military-grade storage solutions in ADATA’s Durable series are the perfect combination of reliability and creative flair, which has led to multiple awards from organizations such as iF and the Red Dot Award. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro represent an evolution of these principles; the HD710M Pro applies the same military camouflage theme as the HD710M, giving off an air of rugged martial prowess, while the HD710A Pro extends the elegant minimalistic themes exemplified by brands such as Apple, with its understated gray and white casing. The HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro both have strong protections against water and dust, which exceed IP68 standards, meaning that they are insusceptible to foreign particles and moisture. They can even survive submerged for 60 minutes in 2m of water, unscathed. The triple-layered construction gives the hard drives exemplary protection against shocks and collisions, having passed drop tests on 26 separate points of impact. They can even survive falls of up to 1.5m.
