DEMO 07- Enabling technologies have their day, too

Fusion-io is another enabling technology that will improve the performance of storage systems, according to co-founders Rick White, CEO and David Flynn, CTO.

The product is ioMemory and it is basically a new storage architecture that puts 640GB of storage on a PC card using silicon instead of rotating disk technology.

The card can handle 100,000 seeks per second and in the demonstration moved the equivalent of 8 DVDs in 40 seconds, all eight were done simultaneously.

"ioMemory is 1000 times faster than a hard drive," said White.

White carried on to the stage a cardboard mock up of 100 hard drives in a box about six foot tall and compared it to the ioMemory card he held in his hand.

"It is a SAN in the palm of your hand," White said.

Remaining on the desktop, Qumranet Solid ICE product offers a fully integrated desktop virtualization product.

In the demonstration Solid ICE was used to manage three separate operating systems on a single desktop. New users can self provision a virtual desktop even to the extent of assigning memory and CPU power to each environment.

LogMein, read that Log Me In, already has 25 million users on the desktop. The company announced at Demo a mobile version of its technology for smart phones.

The product, Rescue plus Mobile, is delivered as a SaaS solution.

Michael Simon, CEO demonstrated how the technology can remote control a smart phone and troubleshoot typical cell phone application issues, such as inability to get onto corporate email.

The remote control system gives help desk providers a virtual image of the smart phone which allows them to use the cursor as the user might use the stylus to navigate the device.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
