Today, Hitachi rolled out its latest cloud strategy, which will consist of three tiers: an infrastructure cloud, content cloud, and information cloud. On the infrastructure side, Hitachi is planning to unify its server, storage, and networking silos in order to provide a dynamic, scalable foundation for essentially all levels of the cloud, including IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. To wit, the company is also introducing Hitachi Cloud Services, Hitachi Cloud Solution Packages, and a cloud management portal. In terms of the second tier, the content cloud, the idea is to “free the data from the underlying... Read more...

If you're currently in the market for a large capacity hard drive, you've come to the right place. Today we take a look at four of the latest 3TB drives to hit the market, from Hitachi, Seagate, and Western Digital. Although each HDD offers the same amount of storage, there are some distinct differences between them.

When we reviewed our first 3TB hard drive almost a year ago, the market wasn't quite ready for the huge storage capacity being made available. Fully compatible motherboards featuring the unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI) were still months away, and having to use a separate host bus adapter (HBA) card was inconvenient and added extra cost. But a year brings a lot of changes to the technology landscape. UEFI-equipped boards are prevalent, starting with P67 based products and spreading to the latest Intel Z68 chipset as well. Many of AMD's 990FX motherboards also sport UEFI. If you're... Read more...
A chord of three strands is not easily broken, or at least Sony, Hitachi, and Toshiba hope so. The three companies are merging their respective small- and medium-sized LCD display businesses (i.e., smartphone and tablet screens) and joining together with Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ). The new company will be called Japan Display. Although three major electronics manufacturers joining forces is big enough news by itself, the involvement of the INCJ adds a layer of intrigue. INCJ is semi-public and receives some funding from the Japanese government; Reuters reports that as much as... Read more...

Hitachi GST is a well-known storage company, but are they really known for style? They are now. The company's new line of USB 3.0 Touro Pro Desktop and Mobile HDDs are about as slick as they come, and each includes two levels of protection -- local backup and cloud storage. This unit is also shipping with the company's cloud access software, which enables users to access and share files from a browser, tablet or smartphone. Every customer receives 3GB of online storage for free and for more storage there is an option to upgrade to a quarter of a terabyte (250GB) for $49 per year, which includes... Read more...
NAB is usually about high-end broadcast gear, but this time, there's a whole ton of peripherals making their debut as well. Hitachi's G-Technology line of HDDs is expanding this year, with a new 3TB 7200RPM drive used across eight G-Technology high-performing external storage solutions for audio/video (A/V) pros. The other major news is the addition of Thunderbolt support, which was developed by Intel and brought to market with help from Apple. These are just a few of the dozens of new HDDs with Thunderbolt ports, and we're sure that number will grow in due time. Having a Thunderbolt external HDD... Read more...
In the chase for first place among hard drive makers, Western Digital's acquisition of Hitachi should pay off handsomely. Market research firm iSuppli reckons the purchase will net WDC a commanding 49.6 percent share of global HDD shipments, increasing its lead over Seagate (29.4 percent) from just 2 percentage points to 20.2 percentage points. Equally important, the purchase opens the door for WDC into the enterprise HDD segment, iSuppli says. "The enterprise HDD market garners significantly higher margins than the consumer segment, which makes the enterprise a fast-growing market for HDD revenue,"... Read more...
Western Digital plans to acquire Hitachi Global Storage Technologies in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $4.3 billion. The resulting company will retain the Western Digital name. By combining these companies, WD says the end result will be a “customer-focused storage company” that will offer the industry’s broadest product lineup. Some of the benefits WD expects to gain from the acquisition include enhanced R&D capabilities, comprehensive market coverage, and scale that will further enhance the cost structure.

Another long day, another large hard drive. It feels like the storage industry is growing its product line at a crazy pace these days, with new hard drives surfacing just about every other day. Not that we're complaining; in fact, we probably need to toss another HDD into our NAS, while we're thinking about it. Hitachi GST is clearly hoping that those in need of more storage space will look their way, as the company has today shipped out the world's first 7200rPM 3TB enterprise-class hard drive. The new Ultrastar 7K3000 drive family is the first 7,200 RPM enterprise-class HDD to deliver 2.0 million... Read more...
