Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the expansion of its flash card product line with the introduction of high-capacity 400X CompactFlash cards with capacities ranging up to 64GB. The new 400X CF cards also feature high-speed transfer rates up to 90 MB/s read and 60MB/s write, ensuring maximum performance when used with today’s high resolution imaging equipment.
Mr. Austin Huang, Regional Head – Sales, SAARC & APAC, Transcend, said, â€œWith storage capacities ranging from 16GB to an enormous 64GB, Transcend’s 400X CF cards allow digital camera users to take thousands of high-resolution photos at a time without the inconvenience of switching cards. The 64GB 400X CF card, for instance, can capture more than 13,000 still images (with a 10 megapixel camera) and record over three hours of Full HD video (1920×1080 at 38.6Mbps). Compared to dual-layer Blu-ray discs that can only hold a maximum of 50 GB, Transcend’s 400X CF cards offer smaller dimensions and larger storage capacity, allowing users of digital single lens reflex cameras (DSLR) and HD video camcorders to take full advantage of their high-resolution equipment.â€
Fully compliant with CompactFlash 4.1 specifications, Transcend’s 400X CompactFlash cards deliver unmatched transfer speeds up toÂ 90MB/sÂ with support for Ultra DMA (UDMA) mode 6, the fastest interface speed available for CF cards. These high-speed cards are able to instantly store high-resolution image data, which makes consecutive shooting and non-stop video recording faster and easier than ever.
To assure robust, long-life durability and guaranteed performance, Transcend’s 400X CF cards are manufactured using only the most advanced Flash controllers and premium quality NAND Flash memory chips available. Additionally, each card features built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) that automatically detects and corrects any errors that might occur during data transfer. Now available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, Transcend’s 400X CompactFlash cards provide photo enthusiasts with a spectacular combination of performance, capacity and peace of mind that their images are safely stored.
The iX-N4224 provides the ideal platform for high-capacity storage applications requiring simplified server management, performance, and power savings. The intelligent Intel® Xeon® 5500 series quad-core processors adjust performance and power usage to meet the exact requirements of computing workloads. Power is conserved by automatically putting the CPU into the lowest available power state during low utilization periods. Performance is also maximized by the processor operating above the rated frequency to speed specific workloads. This intelligent power management, coupled with ultra-high efficiency power supplies and optional low power hard drives and RAM, make the Orion servers and JBODs top of their class in storage capacity/density per watt.
Features of the iX-N4224 Orion Include:
Intel® Xeon® 5500 series server processors for ultimate compute power and intelligent energy usage
Up to 144GB of DDR3 1333 energy efficient RAM
250GB, 500GB, 750GB, 1TB, and 2TB hard drives for fully customizable storage sizes
24 hot-swappable SAS/SATA drive bays offer a maximum of 48 terabytes of storage per server
Expandable to up to 240 drives and 480TB storage capacity with optional Orion JBOD Expansion Units
A Gold level, 93% energy efficient power supply to cut energy costs
Three 5000 RPM cooling PWM fans and two 5000 RPM rear exhaust PWM fans for fantastic cooling
Integrated IPMI 2.0 Remote Management, Lights Out Management, KVM over LAN, and Dedicated Management Interface.
The iX-N4224 provides the ideal platform for deploying a ZFS-based solution, says Matt Olander, CTO of iXsystems. The ZFS file system requires hardware with the capability to expand on the fly. The iX-N4224 Orion Server Series provides this needed expansion capability.
As a highly scalable storage system, the Orion server is optimized for ZFS implementations. ZFS is a 128-bit file system, able to address 18 billion times more data than a 64-bit file system. This gives ZFS systems a technically limitless capacity, with limitations so large that the system will never encounter them. Instead of relying on one device, ZFS file systems utilize virtual storage pools to seamlessly store and pull data from multiple devices or many virtual storage pools amongst one or a few devices. This eliminates the need for a volume manager when using multiple devices.
Up to 9 Orion JBOD Expansion Units can be added to the iX-N4224 to provide massive storage capacity capable of handling ZFS file system requirements. With its large initial capacity and the potential to add further storage as requirements increase, the iX-N4224 provides an excellent choice for ZFS implementation.
Pricing and Availability
The iX-N4224 Orion server series and JBOD Expansion units are immediately available for purchase and delivery. Industry-leading pricing will vary based on the specific configuration needed.

Provides storage and speed needed for over 900 hours of uncompressed, high-definition 1080i video footage and 30,000 hours of uncompressed standard-definition video
— At the recently concluded Broadcast India 2009 event in Mumbai, India, Netweb Technologies-the Server, Storage and HPC solutions provider-unveiled its modified flexible storage solution (FS2) for broadcast and media industry that is expected to significantly change traditional storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) markets. With key features, including scalability up to 384 TB, transfer speeds up to 2GB/s when used with InfiniBand, and input/output unification [with speeds ranging from gigabit Ethernet to 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel (FC) to 10/20/40Gb/s InfiniBand and with the option to use these network technologies either singly or in combination], this next generation unified FS2 can store more than 900 hours of uncompressed, high-definition 1080i video footage and 30,000 hours of uncompressed standard-definition (SD) video. Plus, a GUI and Web based management system makes FS2 deployment easy and fast.
“We could sense that the storage devices need to be designed specifically for some demanding applications. Hence, we wanted our unified and really flexible storage solution to extend to specific requirements of our broadcast and media customers”, said Sanjay Lodha, CEO of Netweb Technologies.
By unifying NAS and SAN in one box, FS2 gives users the flexibility to use the solution as a NAS or a SAN, or both, apart from being compatible with FC to support legacy infrastructure. FS2 for broadcast and media has been engineered with the highest performance technologies to support some of the most demanding media sharing workflows, combines a large number of simultaneous video streams with huge scalability, and supports Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X clients. It delivers adequate bandwidth for working in high-definition (HD) video or to support multiple streams of uncompressed standard-definition (SD) video with real-time effects. Furthermore, FS2 supports unified connectivity to FC, InfiniBand, 10G and Ethernet configurations.
“These are troubled times, and in these times we want our products and solutions to meet customer demands even more by performing multiple functionalities, offering multiple configurations and superb performance and, above all, not hurting the wallet. We have designed this product considering all of these parameters,” added Sanjay.
