apacer_safd_25_ssd.pngAs cloud computing becomes a mainstream, it is essential for enterprise servers to improve capacities and data transmission speeds. Apacer is taking cloud computing as one of its core areas of development, and has created the SAFD 25A - a SATA 3.0 SSD that boasts both capacity and performance gains to address the needs of this industry. This is a high-end SSD targeted for cloud-based computing, featuring outstanding efficiency, based on high IOPs, and a large storage capacity of 512GB. It aims to optimize data storage variables in cloud computing centers by providing speed within a stable and power-saving operating environment.

By using the exceptional features of SSDs such as anti-shock, anti-vibration, low-power consumption, and high-speed data transmission, Apacer expects to help enterprise servers to improve their data access constraints and, in doing so, take the place of traditional hard drives. This can all be accomplished in tandem with cutting a large amount of the cooling cost, providing ground-breaking efficiency to create an increasingly reliable operating environment.

In terms of performance and capacity, the SAFD 25A SSD adopts the SATA 3.0 interface, achieving twice the processing capacity of preceding SATA II interfaces. It boasts a maximum sequential speed of 475/360 MB/sec and IOPs of up to 50,000, making it as efficient as a RAID array consisting of 50 ~ 60 mechanical hard drives. By utilizing this SSD to access data, enterprise clients will have superior overall data processing capability and save the floor space cost of Data Center.

sony_xqd_s_series_memory_card.pngSony's newest memory cards supporting the XQD™ specification are the fastest ever developed, with read and write speeds of 168 MB/s. The new "S Series" is perfect for professional photography applications where high performance and blazing fast image capture are critical, such as sports and live events.

Sony's S Series cards are based on the XQD memory card specification, which the CompactFlash Association approved and licensed as an open format. A unique controller and optimized flash memory enables high-speed data processing, resulting in faster write speed and performance that surpass the maximum interface speed of CF cards (167 MB/s). Transfer speeds may vary and are dependent on the host device.

The new cards are available in 32 and 64 GB capacities and expand Sony's XQD line, joining the acclaimed H Series, recognized by the Technical Image Press Association with a 2012 award for "Best Imaging Storage Media." The S Series demonstrates Sony's commitment to enhancing its XQD memory card line-up as users' needs evolve for high-end digital imaging.

"Professional photographers need to shorten their workflow - the time between shooting, processing and editing," said Viviano Cantu, Director of Consumer Media for Sony Electronics. "With transfer times up to 30% faster than even the fastest CF cards, the S Series gives new meaning to high-performance digital image capture, more than conventional CF can offer, for pro shooters and advanced photo enthusiasts."
