Dell® to add tiering technology to its storage

After acquiring Compellent, Dell has announced plans of using the company’s data tiering technology in its line of storage arrays. According to the officials of Dell, the company has purchased each share of Compellent for $27.75, which makes it a deal worth $940 million. With the total equity price of $940 million the aggregate price for the purchase is roughly $800 million. The most important and significant intellectual property that Compellent had was data tiering technology. After having acquired this technology now Dell wants to offer to its customers the option of shifting the less frequently used data to the higher-capacity but slow in performance SATA hard drives.

Using this tiering technology Dell would be effectively able to reduce the initial costs for its storage system. This would be made possible because the data tiering technology decreases the cost of ownership. One thing that is common between Compellent and Dell is their ambition to assist cloud customers and also regulate their storage investments.

Now having acquired Compellent, Dell plans to combine the best of both the companies and thus win the confidence of its consumers. Dell seeks to help strengthen the customer relationship and also boost customer loyalty towards Dell. For this Dell officials have to make sure that they prove themselves to be the best. HP acquired 3Par, a company that offers services similar to those given by Compellent. An advantage with HP is that regarding 3Par’s SANs. The SANs have an ASIC, that is, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit that helps to offload the advanced functions. Thus, it will give superior performance to its systems and help to target higher-end customers. So you as a consumer have a lot to decide. Get yourself ready to make a tough choice. Brace up to witness a close contest between HP and Dell.

HP tablets at the Think Beyond event

Many things are being expected from the HP Think Beyond event. HP is planning to launch two tablets. The first one is called Topaz. This may have a 10-inch screen. The other one is called Opal. This may be a 7-inch model being a bit shorter as compared to others like Topaz. One of the two tablets, the larger one, which is Topaz, will be shipped in March. The smaller tablet could be shipped in September, with the larger model arriving a few months earlier.

Most of the specifications are missing but we are expecting a 1.2 GHz processor in both the tablets and online storage assigned to all customers. Touchstone wireless will be introduced that has the capacity of displaying time, snapshots and also the GPS information as it is in WebOS 2.0. An excellent feature introduced is the professional grade sound which is powered by the HP Beats Audio features.

HP tablets will have the WebOS operating system. This software was originally developed by Palm in January 2009. It was widely acclaimed because of its highly advanced technical properties. It was easy to use and user friendly too. Then later in 2010 HP acquired Palm. WebOS runs on the Linux kernel. WebOS combines similar things mutually and makes them easier to utilize. It collects contacts and the calendar information from Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft Outlook, and Yahoo! It recognizes manuscript and IM chats with the similar person and sticks them into one conversation. With the Palm Synergy, all the essential information is kept at one place. Switching from one open application to another without any complexity is also one of the properties. WebOS helps in keeping many applications open. It is also enabled with a feature to check the e-mails even while doing some other work. Using the contacts, one can map the address. This can involuntarily add any reservation to the calendar schedule. It also has the ability to zoom in or out on a page.

HP Pavilion® laptops now have new touch pad buttons

HP Pavilion laptops now come with a new touch pad design. The new design has been introduced because the mouse button model which was used in HP Pavilion laptops was a big hit. The click pad did not work out well from the time it was used in the netbooks. The touch pad was over sized and hence was clean looking but combining the two ideas did not come out well because the cursor movement was not proper. Though the touch pad was considered very fashionable by the users it could not be merged with the click pad. HP made quite a lot of effort to solve this problem and used many software drivers.

It also took the help from company that made the click pads. After this, HP decided to launch a completely new hardware and fix the problem. The new touch pad had right and left mouse button and HP made it look like the classic click pad and hence it looked bigger and better. With the new HP Pavilion dv6, the burden was lifted as it came out to be a really cool one. A feature that can be added by the customers according to their choice is a bright LED light that will surround the touch pad. Also HP added a speaker above the keypad. The new model of HP Pavilion will have hardware and software to increase the audio quality. Another cool feature is that it has let the heat radiating vent to the sides and hence the palm rest area while typing will not get heated. The new HP Pavilion touch pads are available from March and the price will range from $749.99 to $999.99.
