Surface Book nightmare: Microsoft won't fix 'Sleep of Death' bug

Re: People must stop buying anything from Microsoft.

Microsoft doesn't care about the noise.

They think to be untouchables because they have full protection of corrupted politicians and judges and because they don't care about their customers nor quality of their products.

Noise will change nothing.

Microsoft must disappear. They deserve to. Enough is enough.

Microsoft must go bankrupt! Stop buying their flawed products!

It is time for Microsoft to disappear.

The Surface crap is just like the Windows8.0, 8.1 and 8.2=10 crap and the WindowsPhone crap all with the Metro/ModernUI unusable childish nonsense.

People must stop buying anything from Microsoft.

Re: A death and decline so easily forseen...

You are seriously trying to compare analog cameras on film to Hard Disk Drives ? Really?

And then SSD NAND would be the new digital camera?

Manufacturers cheating and hiding money... That is what is really happening.

People buy more HDUs and SSD now than ever before. And faster internet connections in major countries means higher demand.

The enterprise sector needs more drives and data centers for cloud services or not need to buy more units.

So these manufacturers now claiming to be losing money and no one buying drives anymore are just liars and telling b*ll.

Riddle me this: What grows as it shrinks? Answer: LTO tape

Joerg

Re: problems.

"Then, in order for this to make sense, you have to change the tapes. And THIS is the problem. Somebody changing tapes is EXPENSIVE."

Nonsense. If you need more tapes you buy a tape loader LTO drive and not a single unit. They are more expensive indeed but it is not a consumer type product.

LTO tape drives are speed adaptive anyway, if maximum sustained drive speed can't be achieve from the source the drive would just slow down.

Re: Incorrect extrapolation - wrong commercial understanding

You are the one emotionally driven here with your childish crusade against LTO tape archiving trying to tell that no one would be buying it and even LTO-8 won't happen.

You don't have a clue.

Data Center and Enterprise business sectors need LTO tape archiving. Without it costs would quadruple or worse.

You are babbling nonsense silly stats and numbers based on nothing trying to disprove reality.

It is not that the LTO tapes have just been released on the market now! It is its 7th generation.

Also IBM and Sun Oracle still have their own proprietary high-end tape archiving formats which are not LTO and they aren't going to stop releasing new higher capacity models in the coming years.

And you keep telling that no one is buying the drives and it is a declining market and other nonsense.

There is nothing better to replace tape drives technology. And there won't be anything for the next 10 years or more at least.

If a new better technology appears on the market surely the tapes tech might be in trouble and stop being developed BUT until then either tapes or waste of money and lack of reliability for anyone that is not doing his/her job properly in any Data Center or Enterprise.

@" Justthefacts

Re: Incorrect extrapolation - wrong commercial understanding

All you have done is re-iterate "I see good technical reasons to go on buying this stuff"

I don't know your sector and have no reason to disbelieve you.

I do not dispute that it "would" still be cheaper in 10 years time* [for some customers]

I do dispute that anyone will (or is) investing 100M of their own money to make it for you. Low margins and a *shrinking* market. I've done loads of pitches, and I've just never seen one proposing to invest for a shrinking tech. Ever. They are all either - this market grows by 10% CAGR and will go on doing so forever; or this market is heading for the stars - 60% CAGR, disruptive play, blah

This is a pure numbers game % ROI. Take the emotion out."

Re: Incorrect extrapolation - wrong commercial understanding

YOU CLEARLY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!

Yeah kill LTO and just use HDUs... Seriously? So why aren't Data Centers, Enterprises doing that right now? Why didn't they do it in the past years?

SIMPLE.

Hard Disk Drives and SSDs are far less reliable for any archive purposes than high-end enterprise class tapes like the LTO standard.

And archiving on LTO is a lot cheaper too. And it will still be cheaper in the next 5 or 10 years at least.

The upcoming Intel 3D XPoint might be able to deliver some reliable SSD drives (because NAND flash sucks big time) but it will still be a lot more expensive for many years than LTO tapes and it might never get as cheap as the tapes.

Your dreams are far from reality.

LTO-8 and LTO-9 and LTO-10 are going to happen regardless of what you think or expect which clearly is anything you have no clue about.

@ Justthefacts

"What do I think data centres would do without tape?

In the long term (like 2025), use slightly more expensive cold-stored HDD.

*some* cloudy stuff is archived on tape, but most (by data volume) is not. The info is all in the article. Tape is a minority interest.

8 and 9 don't exist (obvs). The roadmap exists. The tooling does not. hardware isn't made by leprechauns.

I wrote it above, exactly: there are customers who do want tape. But "want", and "are prepared to treble or quadruple their spend, to cost share the r and d with a declining industry" are different.

I expect you "want" it, and your business will be slightly spannered when tape dies. But I'm equally sure that if you ask your boss - hey, can you just sign off this budget for $30M , to fund this other companies r and d, they will laugh. Point is, *theres no one to split the bill with, there just aren't enough customers in your position, with deep enough pockets*

That's the way capitalism works"

Re: Incorrect extrapolation - wrong commercial understanding

"And there won't be an 8 or 9, because the market size doesn't justify even $10M R&D to develop it.

By 2021-2022 it will be apparent that all current tape generations are uneconomic to produce for that reducing market volume."

What nonsense are you babbling about? Are you unable to read or what?

LTO-8 , LTO-9 and LTO-10 have been planned and announced already.

What do you think data centers would do without LTO tape drives? Where would they put thousands if not millions of PetaBytes of data in the next years, uh? SSDs ? HDUs ? Optical media? There is nothing better and cheaper than LTO tape drives for reliable enterprise class data archiving and there won't be for many years.

And for anyone thinking "on the cloud" ... think twice. Cloud services use thousands of LTO tape drives in their data centers otherwise they wouldn't be able to archive a damn thing.

Re: problems.

Wrong.

LTO tape drives don't need to write at sustained maximum speed. If you don't mind the backup taking a longer time you can use slow drives and NAS on network as the source.

Anyway just adding a couple consumer SATA hard disk drives in cheap RAID-0 configuation would be more than enough for up to LTO-6 at least.

LTO-7 to achieve maximum speed at least two hard disks with a 200MByte/s sustained transfer rate.

LTO tape drives must be expensive. Otherwise they wouldn't be as reliable. Cheaper means lower quality components being used.

Anyway although the drives are expensive the tapes are really cheap. And the transfer rate is faster than most hard disks and the new LTO-7 is faster than most SSDs too.

A new LTO-5 drive (1500GByte tapes native capacity) can be bought for 1200Euros and tapes price is around 20Euros.

A new LTO-6 drive (2500GByte tapes native capacity) can be bought for 1500-1600Euros and tapes price is around 45Euros.

A new LTO-7 drive (6000GByte tapes native capacity) can be bought for 2500Euros and tapes price is around 120Euros.

Used LTO-3 tape drives (400GBytes native capacity) on eBay sell for just 50 to 100Euros on average.

While used LTO-4 tape drives (800GBytes native capacity) for 150-250Euros on average.

Re: Two things only?

"How about lying about the user tracking? It was supposed to happen only in the beta, but made it's way into the production version.

And it cannot be completely deactivated by the user in the non-pro versions."

Telemetry can't be deactivated on the Pro and Enterprise versions of Windows10 either.

Microsoft allows to disable only what they expose to the public on their atrocious mess of an UI *but* there are so many hidden services tracking users inside the OS and doing the worst.

Even using some third party utilities like DoNotSpy10 to disable all the malware and telemetry crap inside Windows8.2=10 there is no guarantee that a lot more remains active. Until discovered there could always be more and Microsoft keeps adding malware and telemetry tracking with new hotfixes.
