World's Largest SSD is now 100TB

SSD storage is usually pretty small when compared to the mechanical counterpart, but that is changing with the latest drive from Nimbus Data. The drive is the ExaDrive DC100 and they manage to cram an incredible 100TB of data into a 3.5-inch drive. It won't fit in your laptop, and it certainly won't fit into many budgets at this time. The price isn't available, but it will be into the "tens of thousands of dollars". Still, it kind of makes me want to see how long it would take to fill up. Four of these in a NAS would be pretty epic.

As you might guess, this is intended for servers where capacity takes priority over everything else, including performance (the 500MB/sec is nothing to write home about). A data center could hold 100 petabytes of data in a single rack instead of needing large swaths of server room space. That's helpful for cloud services, AI and other technologies that may need massive amounts of data.

Yahoo fined $35 million for data breach

Remember that time that Yahoo failed to disclose one of the biggest data breaches of all time? Remember how they then sold to Verizon for $4.48 billion dollars? Well as a result of an investigation of federal regulators' charges, they've been fined $35 million dollars. I'm sure other $4+ billion dollar companies will be super worried about fines when the numbers are that low and everyone will learn their lessons, right? 

The LA Times has more on this story.

The company formerly known as Yahoo is paying a $35-million fine to resolve federal regulators' charges that the online pioneer deceived investors by failing to disclose one of the biggest data breaches in internet history.

The Securities and Exchange Commission announced the action Tuesday against the company, which is now called Altaba Inc. after its email and other digital services were sold to Verizon Communications Inc. for $4.48 billion last year. The Sunnyvale, Calif., company, which no longer is publicly traded, neither admitted nor denied the allegations but did agree to refrain from further violations of securities laws.

Roccat @ CES 2013

We made a stop by Roccat today to check out some of their newest products. Like most other Roccat products, the newest additions to their lineup are made specifically with gamers in mind. The first product we saw was the Ryos MK Pro keyboard. This is a mechanical keyboard with your choice of 4 different cherry MX switches and is the first keyboard to offer individual key illumination. Individual key illumination means you can illuminate only the buttons that you are using in a specific game, or you can change the colors of specific important buttons, or pretty much anything lighting scheme you can think up. Roccat will also offer the Ryos keyboard in other flavors with less features at a lower price.

Also being displayed this year is Roccat’s new software called Power-Grid which allows you to use your smartphone to control things like skype, teamspeak, game macros, news, weather, computer performance statistics, and much much more without ever having to exit out of your game. The Power-Grid software will be free for the base program (extra functions and premium apps will be extra)  and you will be able to make your own apps and customize it to do whatever you want. At first this might not seem like the most useful program but after we experienced it first and we thought up dozens of uses that would make it quite handy. Roccat will be releasing this software for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone (release date still unknown). You can find out more about Power-Grid and even sign up to be a beta tester over at Roccat's website.
