  • How VR will drive storage – or the reverse
    How VR will drive storage - or the reverse

    VR headsets are storage hogs. Who knew? The key to an immersive and non-sickening VR experience are graphics that are detailed and smooth. Today’s 1080p systems are OK, but far from ideal. For ideal we have to go to 4k since the displays are so close to our eyes, with none of the frame dropouts or tearing that make people sick. While 4k content requires 4x the storage capacity of 2k (1080) content, it is storage bandwidth that will force…

    The Weavechain: Temporal Immutable Storage and Consensus

    What if you need to store data, with the security and consensus of a blockchain, but on a device that does not have the necessary storage requirements? Right now, many mobile phones don’t have enough space to store a blockchain, let alone multiple blockchains. The wallets on these devices thus have to be light versions of what can be run on a computer with more harddisk space. For the Internet of Coins project this problem has been put on a…

    4 ways to contain IT storage creep

    Credit: Shutterstock In most businesses, data grows rapidly, voraciously consuming storage as it does so and ratcheting up expenses. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep it under control. However, there is a difference between the Blob and storage that puts you in the driver’s seat. Data didn’t arrive on earth courtesy of a meteorite. We create it by ourselves every day. If we produced the problem, we should be able to defend against it and its associated costs. Here are…

    From paper to microchip: evolution of computer storage

    I can hear the sounds of the old player pianos in my head. It amazed me how an instrument could play the proper notes by following directions punched onto a piece of paper. Recently, I got to relive this wonderment when I bought a Christmas-themed music box player. Machines taking directions from holes in paper is nothing new. Its first known use of it dates to 1725 when Basile Bouchon first controlled a loom with punched holes in paper. Tying…

    Quickly convert between storage size units: KB, MB, GB, TB & 512 byte blocks

    A very common task in the IT industry is needing to convert between #storage size units – bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, terabytes, etc. To make things even more complicated, the POSIX standard also specifies that the default output for commands like “df” and “du” must be in 512 byte block sizes. This post will cover a very simple and easy way to quickly convert between any of these units.
