Simple Software Change on Same Hardware Drives Massive Block, Object and File Storage Improvement

KIOXIA America, Inc. (formerly Toshiba Memory America, Inc.) today announced that, in recent benchmark performance tests, its KumoScale™ storage software based on NVM Express™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) technology was able to improve performance when compared to Ceph software. Testing conducted in a networked environment that included the NVMe-oF specification and a TCP/IP transport showed that KumoScale software’s read performance is 12x faster than Ceph, and read latency is reduced by 60%. With similar loads, under the same testing conditions, write performance is 60x faster than Ceph while latency is reduced by 98%.

recent ‘Battery Day’ announcements only highlight the incredible challenges facing the electricity storage market, and raise significant questions about how the market will evolve.

We know that demand for energy storage is surging to meet increasing demand for renewable energy and electrified transport. According to Maria Xylia at Sweco Sweden, only 3% of global capacity can be currently stored and energy demand itself is expected to increase over 50% to 2050. Storage is a fundamental necessity for the integration of renewables into a smoothly running and efficient energy system, and it needs to be cost-effective, high performance and safe.

As Dr. Young-hye Na, Manager, Materials Innovations for Next-Gen Batteries, IBM Research says, “Enabling better battery energy storage will be key to a successful

Rumors suggest Apple’s iPhone 12 launch event will be held on October 13, with the more affordable 5.4 and 6.1-inch devices set to ship out ahead of the more expensive 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro devices, and this morning hit-and-miss leaker Jon Prosser has further committed to that date by providing alleged details on Apple’s first shipment of finalized ‌iPhone 12‌ units.


Prosser claims the initial shipment of ‌iPhone 12‌ units will go out to distributors on October 5 in advance of the launch event, and this will include the 5.4-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ “mini” – which he says is “definitely the final marketing name” – and the lower end 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ model. Prosser asserts that the two higher-end Pro models will be announced at the same event but will ship later in November.

Prosser also claims that the more affordable models will come in 64, 128, and 256GB storage capacities,

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are both capable of loading game worlds almost instantly, delivering seamless gameplay that won’t leave you waiting for minutes on a loading screen as an area is generated. That advantage compared to Xbox One is largely because of the new Xbox storage device, which is a custom NVMe SSD rather than the hard drives used previously. It’s one of the biggest game-changers going into the next generation, and if you’re wondering how it all works, we’ll break it down for you.

How does Xbox storage work on the new systems?

This allows your devices act as a USB mass storage like external hard drive or thumb drive.

Kernel support

Currently, the g_mass_storage module is not compiled as part of default kernel configuration.

To enable this, follow same kernel building information as previous section USB Ethernet support but instead of compiling “Ethernet Gadget”, select the following to “m”:

Device Drivers  --->
	USB support  --->
		USB Gadget Support  --->
			<M>     Mass Storage Gadget

You can now continue following manual build howto to continue kernel compilation and installation.

Preparing shared storage device

See “Backing Storage for the Mass Storage Gadget” for full instructions and recommendations.

Be aware that shared storage cannot be used in “read write” mode if both systems (device and host) are using it at same time except if you accept to corrupt your data…

An existing physical partition or a logical volume can be used as shared storage device; another
