Netgear says sorry four weeks after losing customer backups

Joerg

Netgear routers and switches are mostly excellent but their NAS division is a mess!

Netgear routers and switches are mostly excellent but their NAS division is a mess!

They even all of a sudden dropped support for many NAS models to release new ones trying to force customers to trash the working ones for new products just to get updated software and features.

The best NAS come from Synology with top-notch software support that lasts many years.

Intel loses its Lustre – Chipzilla bins own-brand HPC file system

Joerg

Re: Intel bailing on programs

All the claims and numbers telling that the PC market is in trouble and the decline keeps going are just lies. PC hardware components, even very expensive Nvidia GPUs are being sold like hot-cakes and motherboard manufacturers keep releasing dozens of models every year. If there really was any decline as the claims and numbers tell the public then hardware manufacturers would shrink their products range and release the bare minimum to keep going. It is just that obvious. As long as hardware manufacturers don't shrink their catalogs of products it means that the PC market decline is just a fake and multinationals managers are getting away with the money they claim to be losing.

Deeming Facebook a 'publisher' of users' posts won't tackle paedo or terrorist content

Shutdown Facebook,Twitter,Whatsapp and outlaw all of that!

Shutdown Facebook,Twitter,Whatsapp and outlaw all of that!

Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and any similar service must be outlawed worldwide.

The managers must be jailed and all their money seized.

Then the world would be a better place and some people would start using their brains again, if anything is left inside those heads.

Inside Intel's Optanical garden

Joerg

Re: NAND SSD are crap! Stop with the lies against 3D XPoint !

Never trust anything about NAND endurance. Ever. By any manufacturer.

If you read the SSD specs with the NAND inside it all seems good and shiny.. then go and find the tech pdf specs of the NAND flash chips and everything changes. There the stats lies are far less and the truth gets out. NAND is completely unreliable. Even the most expensive Enterprise class SLC chips.

NAND SSD are crap! Stop with the lies against 3D XPoint !

NAND SSD are crap! Stop with the lies against 3D XPoint !

And I mean seriously.

Is that just pure ignorance or is someone pushing these articles against Intel/Micron on purpose?

Because going around telling that NAND SLC,MLC,TLC,QLC would have no endurance issues and would even last longer than 3D XPoint is just beyond pathetic!

All NAND flash technologies are completely unreliable with a very low endurance which is a lot lower than what the claimed statistics show in the real world.

XPoint: Leaked Intel specs reveal 'launch-ready' SSD – report

Joerg

Re: Not as good as some?

NAND SSDs are not reliable.

Not an issue Enterprise wise ?

Only idiots and fools would spend millions on NAND SSD units expecting those to be reliable.

"they just wear out" ? Yeah sure.. just quickly re-buy all of those and keep spending 7-10 times the money that would be needed using Hard Disk Drives instead... that must be so smart indeed.. maybe for managers allowing these things in IT depts on purpose to steal money from investors offering a lower quality service overall.

Re: Not as good as some?

The best thing about 3D XPoint more than raw performance is endurance. 30 full drives writes per day means that a 3D XPoint drive is far more reliable than the best Enteprise SLC NAND SSDs and on par with or better than most Enterprise class Hard Disk Drives.

While MLC, TLC and upcoming QLC NAND SSDs are a huge mess, completely unreliable for any use other than caching on SAS RAID controllers.

3D XPoint SSDs will be able to replace Hard Disk Drives in a 5-10 years time and the unreliable NAND technologies will quickly become obsolete as they deserve.

You better layer up, Micron's working on next-generation XPoint

Joerg

Re: a hint that we might hope to see QLC drives appear in 2018.

QLC NAND.. please.. TLC sucks big time already. What will QLC expected life usage be then? 10TeraBytes read/write operations or less? Well.. probably even less than 2TB on most models.. so a 480GB SSD QLC NAND drive would die quickly.

SLC Enterprise class NAND are the only SSD NAND realiable enough to be really used.

MLC, TLC and then QLC can be used as long as the disk activity is very low. Reliability wise they are just plain useless.

LTO tape drives are the best way to backup data.

LTO tape drives are the best way to backup data.

Just the cheapest and more reliable and they are very fast too.

Only fools would keep data backups on the cloud, business wise is just insane. There is a good reason why all data centers that make the cloud services have hundreds or thousands of LTO tape drives with robot units in expensive racks to quickly store petabytes of customers data.

What a silly crusade against 3D XPoint is going on here...!

Seriously all this hate against Intel and Micron 3D XPoint technology is just pathetic.

Why should anyone want ReRAM instead of 3D XPoint, uh?

Why is ReRAM so much better?

Both are not on the market yet. However Intel and Micron surely know what they are doing way more than other manufacturers.

Re: Think of how much

With current hard disk technologies manufacturers could release 200TB+ 5.25" Hard Disk Drives easily and at very cheap prices ($250 to $400). But they don't want to. They want to sell old low capacity drives at inflated prices instead.

Aaarrgh, zombie! Dead Apple iOS monopoly lawsuit is reanimated

Joerg

Who is paying these corrupted judges, uh?

Who is paying these corrupted judges, uh?

This is not justice. The justice system is so corrupted worldwide.

Attacking Apple like this based on silly pathetic lies is a shame and the whole IT industry should be seriously afraid of any judges acting like this.

There is no damn monopoly! iOS is and Apple OS product, the App Store is for iOS based devices and customers. Period.

Who doesn't like Apple and iOS for whatever reason can buy the atrocious Android crap or the almost dead WindowsPhone/Windows10 stuff.

Judges can't be allowed the right to damage Apple business along with iOS developers publishing on the App Store and earning money.

If any judges worldwide is allowed to affect any business like that the whole system would go down and a lot of people would lose jobs.

These judges must be put in jail! That is where they belong!

Netgear: Nothing to see here, please disperse. Just another really bad router security hole

Joerg

Re: Been like this for more than a decade

Don't spread lies.

Although some Netgear products don't get regular firmware updates as they should (the WN203v2 AP comes to mind) many other are continously updated both consumer class and business class.

The SRX5308 VPN got many firmware updates and they improved performance fixing bugs while they lied on the FVS336Gv2 that has WAN bandwidth issues (ISP connection above 35Mbps just don't work, a 50Mbps connection or higher is slowed down due to WAN ports issues) and the firmware updates don't fix anything and they refuse to replace it with the FVS336Gv3 with which they resolved the WAN ports bandwidth issues at the hardware level.

So some with some products they do the right thing while with others the managers need to get fired.

This 'cloud storage' thing is going to get seriously big in 2017

Joerg

Stick with RAID and LTO instead.

Any business relying on cloud services for data storage needs to have the management fired along with the tech guys. RAID-5, RAID-6, RAID-50, RAID-60 and LTO tape drives are the only proper way to store data in a reliable way.

Of course Einstein was wrong.. but the Big Bang theory is wrong too!

Of course Einstein was wrong.. but the Big Bang theory is wrong too!

There is no fixed speed of light. The fact that complex mathematical models and equations seem to work correctly with a fixed speed of light at least here on Earth mean absolutely nothing.

Any science claiming to have found "the laws of nature" is deadly wrong from the start.

A mathematical model can seem to be perfect and a law with limited knowledge in a limited area but it doesn't mean that is the law of all universes and it works everywhere.

Bad products is AMD fault only

Oh yeah.. competition is good... yep.. unless manufacturers are releasing low quality subpar and just bad products like all the Google Android crap tablets and smartphones and the AMD CPUs and GPUs that are a silly joke.

The fake next-gen consoles Playstation4 and XBoxOne and Playstation4Pro and XBox Scorpio all AMD big fraud based selling absolute crap with marketing lies all fake specifications numbers and such.

No, that is not good competition. Junk products on the market is not good competition at all.

Although there are fools and idiots buying those frauds it doesn't mean that anyone should.

AMD, Google and Android manufacturers all deserve to go bankrupt and be put in jail for the frauds they do selling crap products.

First look at Windows Server 2016: 'Cloud for the masses'? We'll be the judge of that

Joerg

Microsoft employees are on the influence of some really heavy drugs, indeed... the statement: "Just as in Windows NT we took a scenario that only the princes and high priests of technology could do" ... well it is just beyond crazy.

Windows Server 2016 is going to be a huge mess overall. Just like Server 2012 wasn't messed up already. Since the whole Metro/ModernUI nonsense began anything good that was done with Windows7 and Server2008/2008 R2 was lost. Then Windows8.2=10 happened and now The Server2016 aka Windows10 Camouflaged For The Enterprise is going to be even worse.

Intel XPoint over-selling criticism surges as Chipzilla hits back

Joerg

The real question here is ... who is behind all these rumors telling that the Intel XPoint would be a huge disappointment and Intel just kept lying , uh?

Competitors indeed.

Competitors selling the unreliable NAND Flash crap SSD do not want Intel/Micron 3D XPoint technology to succeed because if that happens they would start losing money and would have to quickly spend billions trying to come up with a competing technology as fast and reliable as the 3D XPoint is going to be.

The SSD NAND are overpriced unreliable mostly defective products. The industry is full of cheaters and thieves selling the worst.

Microsoft to overhaul Windows 10 UI – with a 3D Holographic Shell

THAT IS JUST PLAIN STUPID. Way worse than the Metro/ModernUI crap already.

The VR headsets facade is going to die quicker than the fake 3D stereoscopic glasses crap.

So Microsoft wants Windows users to get an headache and puke while using Windows thanks to the crap VR headsets, uh?

Seagate in 10TB drive brand brainstorm

Joerg

Inflated prices...

Consumer hard disk drives have rarely been so expensive and surely not in the last 15 years or so.

Selling at sky high prices products like hard disks even the consumer models that rarely last more years than their warranty is a huge mistake business wise.

Hard Disk drives should be cheap and manufacturers should earn from huge quantities sold first.

Enterprise models being expensive is a minor issue for most large businesses that can afford buying thousands if not millions each year anyway.

With prices so high Seagate is losing millions of customers.
