EMEA External Enterprise Storage Market Shows Recovery Signs

Published

on

In the first quarter of 2021, sales of external enterprise storage systems in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region grew 4.5% year-on-year. This is the conclusion reached by IDC analysts, specifying that the growth is observed in dollar terms, and if you count in euros, then sales decreased by 4.3%. This is an example of how much the exchange rate has changed over the year.

Most of all, the growth was manifested in Western Europe – in dollar terms, it amounted to 6.6%. If we look at the storage technology segments, it turns out that the largest growth (8.2%) was demonstrated by hybrid arrays. The second place is taken by storage based only on hard drives (7.8%), followed by SSD arrays (0.4%).

“As restrictions are lifted in several large countries, IT investment has resumed due to the growing confidence in the future by both consumers and businesses,” said Silvia Cosso, Deputy Director of IDC West Europe.

The balance of power in the corporate storage market in the EMEA region can be judged by the data from the table prepared by IDC specialists:

US Army tests Microsofts 22 billion augmented reality glasses

The US military has completed intensive testing of Microsoft’s new multifunctional glasses. The soldiers of the 70th Army wore glasses for three weeks, playing three 72-hour scenarios, including movement towards the enemy, attack and defense.

The results of the test report, which will be published in September, will determine whether the US Congress will approve the next $424.2 million test cycle, as well as whether purchases of the device, which is planned to spend another $21.9 billion, will begin. It should be noted that these 22 billion included not only the cost of the glasses themselves, but also spare parts, as well as technical support services for 10 years.

The glasses are a “head display” of the type used by fighter pilots. From a technical point of view, this is a heavily modified version of the HoloLens glasses. The screen of the device, which is always in front of the soldier’s eyes, displays a map of the area, instructions from commanders and other data (for example, an image of a thermal imager).

Elon Musk already has 100 million followers on Twitter A

Despite the fact that Elon Musk has not posted anything on Twitter for a week, his account on this social network is becoming more popular day by day. He recently passed the milestone of 100 million subscribers. To Cristiano Ronaldo, who is in last place in the top 5 most massive Twitter accounts, Musk is only 1.3 million subscribers.

Just over four years ago, at the beginning of 2018, Musk had only 18 million followers on Twitter, and at the time of signing the recent deal to buy Twitter, Musk had 83.6 million followers on the social network. In other words, Ronaldo will not stay in fifth place for long.

It must be said that Musk is used by Twitter not only as a platform for communication, but also for manipulation – very often his messages influenced the quotes of stocks and cryptocurrencies. And you can also remember his tweet about Coca-Cola and cocaine – he became the second most popular in the history of the platform, having collected more than 4.5 million likes.

Arm didn’t say much about ray tracing in the Immortalis-G715. So far, no tests or full-fledged comparisons have been presented, so it is not yet possible to assess the quality of work and the number of frames per second. At the same time, ready-made solutions will have to wait until 2023. However, Arm still shared a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the new graphics solution.

Previously, a new super-powerful Cortex-X3 processor core was reported. Less productive solutions were also presented.
