While Super Micro Computer unveiled a new high-performance, high-capacity storage appliance for enterprises, Orange (News - Alert) and Akamai Technologies entered into a strategic partnership to address the growing needs of the enterprise sector for improved content delivery.
And Panduit delivered the connected building solution to the enterprise solutions community this past week.
TMCnet contributor Nathesh reported that Super Micro Computer has blended the power of 10 2.4 TB Fusion ioDrive2 Duo with the Supermicro 3U 11x PCI (News - Alert)-E SuperServer to deliver a new high-capacity storage appliance with unparalleled levels of performance and density.
As per the report, notable features of Supermicro’s 3U 11x PCI-E SuperServer are up to 512 GB DDR3, 1600 MHz ECC, 16x DIMM sockets, expansion slots such as 10xPCI-E 3.0x8, 1xPCI-E2.0x4 (in x8), Intel (News - Alert) i350 dual port Gigabit Ethernet, eight hot-swap 3.5-inch HDD bays, two 5.25-inch drive bays, server remote management – IPMI 2.0 / KVM over LAN / media over LAN, three middle fans and one rear exhaust fan; and more.
For improved content delivery, Orange and Akamai Technologies, providers of cloud infrastructure and CDN services, entered into a strategic partnership, allowing Orange to use technology from Akamai's Aura Network Solutions to provide CDN services to business customers.
As per this report, Akamai Technologies said that upon deployment, the operator's enterprise division Orange Business Services (News - Alert) will market these solutions initially in France.
In other news, TMCnet contributing editor Susan J Campbell highlighted Panduit Connected Building solution that enables converged application deployment throughout the enterprise through the extension of both non-IP and IP-based network devices within the corporate building. Building systems then become a true business asset, one that enables developers and owners the ability to reduce costs and enhance the workplace experience, wrote Campbell.
The report indicates that Panduit’s enterprise solutions deliver the physical platform necessary for the deployment of scalable, secure and interoperable building automation systems for the entire enterprise. Systems extend from the Telecommunications Room (TR) and the data center, over the last mile to include IP-enabled endpoints. These endpoints can include access controls, climate controls, energy management and surveillance cameras, as well as AV devices, wireless communications and even fire/safety controls.
