In 1879, inside a New Jersey research lab that would become the proving ground for General Electric, Thomas Edison invented a light...
Western Digital’s new OpenFlex architecture promises breakthrough levels of scalability, efficiency and performance. Here’s a look at some of the technologies enabling it, including NVMe-over-Fabric and the Kingfish™ open API.
A general purpose processor is fine for most servers and mobile phones, but isn’t optimized for the specific requirements created by the rise of Big Data and Fast Data applications. A big data application such as analytics has a very different processing profile that can handle large amounts of data versus a Fast Data application such as autonomous car controls, which requires time-critical processing for smaller amounts of data.
How can we help create value from data? Since a large percentage of the world’s data lives on our products, we believe that Western Digital is in a unique position to drive innovation around data. We look forward to sharing the excitement of our activities.
Blockchain is powering emerging technologies and will enable the marketplaces of the future due to three key capabilities: access control; security; and transparency. The powerful capabilities of this technology will unlock the potential of the multi-billion dollar IoT data marketplace in the coming years and decades.
One of the most exciting new technologies on the near horizon is the next generation cellular network standard known as...
The announcement of our breakthrough in MAMR technology has stunned the industry. Getting there was not easy. Lenny Sharp shares a behind the scenes look at our path to innovation.
At SC16, Western Digital is showcasing the latest innovation in Storage Class Memory, a prototype memory controller incorporating SCM into the memory hierarchy.
The next great challenge for storage companies will be developing a Storage Class Memory (SCM). But can the promise of SCM be fulfilled? A few lessons learned from 3D NAND.
