How are SSDs in notebooks increasing productivity?

SSD: The New Defacto Standard

Mar 26, 2014

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

It used to be that SSD was a luxury upgrade that many saw as unnecessary. I am at the point now that the idea of using a normal hard disk for anything other than data storage is simply out of the question. I am a high performance computer enthusiast and SSD is taken for granted as an essential component for the boot drive. Anything less will never do.SSD is so much faster, more durable, cooler, operates silently and draws less power. Running cool and drawing less power are obviously both a big plus for notebooks. I cannot give any kind of quantifiable data relating to increased productivity, but to a fair extent I believe that it requires no explanation or business case. The cost per gigabyte has reached a point of being reasonable and acceptable for consumer grade SSD drives. I can only provide anecdotal observations as it relates to productivity.I work for a large corporation and the almost the entire laptop fleet has been migrated to SSD. These machines are burdened with a massive overhead of security applications to protect sensitive information, as well as tracking employee activity. Before migration to SSD, most of these machines took an inordinate amount of time to become functional from the time the power button was pressed until the system was actually usable. We are talking 15 minutes versus 30 seconds, which is huge. Multiply that times 10,000 employees and about 220 work days per employee, the wasted time waiting for a system to become usable begins to add up.

High speed internet(5G) of personal cloud computer

Mar 11, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

I have a concept with personal cloud computer. After 5G coming, data download/upload is more faster than before.the comcept as below,1. When user use his/her DELL PC or NB, there is a flash rom(4GB) to storage user data(ex, desk setting, my favorite, document, simutaneously upload to personal cloud.2. After user leave computer, and data done of uplaod in cloud, then log out.3. User go to another place, and use another DELL device(DT/NB). To log in account(include cloud), then data download from cloud to device flash rom, and use it to boot device(depend on internet speed), then user can get same with his/her personal DELL device content, include desk setting.4. To help customer can use personal setting everywhere, even in library or public place, just need DELL device.

Dell R720 Servers

Mar 10, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

The online configurator for the R720 server allows for the selection of a Dual PERC H710P controller (the one I need) however, if you select it, you recieve an error no matter what RAID configuraion you choose.  This has relegated me to purchasing T620 tower servers that sit on shelves in my client's racks, and them trying to argue with me that the Dell website shows the Dual PERC as an an option.  After complaining on Twitter about a year ago (because that's the most efficient way to contact Dell), I was contacted and assured that someone was working on fixing the configurator.  It was a known issue and a high priority. You woulden't believe who contacted me and told me that (hint: His last name rhymes with Bell).  Still ordering towers when my clients need racks.

WyseOS Implement RDP Hyper-V Extensions

Mar 5, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

This would be an outstanding enhancemen to WyseOS RDP.  When a C10LE is conneced to our Windows 7 computer via RDP, when one uses VNC directly to the Windows 7 computer they currently only see the console CTRL-ALT-DEL screen.  The RDP extensions introduced in Hyper-V connect directly the console.  This new behvior would allow us to use apps we like to use like X-Protect Desktop Screen Recorder and possibly Synergy keyboard/mouse software.http://www.cloudbase.it/using-freerdp-to-connect-to-the-hyper-v-console/Please consider this.  I don't know what your current CONSOLE option on the C10LE RDP configuration does, but it does not appear to provide this functionality.

Optimal laptop cooling solution

Feb 16, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

How to keep laptops cool and cooled?My idea is to put everything that works above 60°C (CPU, GPU) under an active heatsink (or more, if possible), but you need to keep the rest cooled as well. For example RAMs, SSDs and HDDs, Board-integrated circuits. Why not to make aluminium body one ultimate passive heatsink for that? I mean except GPU and CPU there is nothing to generate too much heat,but if there is no air-flow, it can overheat overtime.Connecting those chips and devices to an big passive part, they will be cooled by outer natural airflow and still the chasis temp will not cross 35°C, preferably mounted to the top part cause hands will probably like it and your lap can stay icy cool.This solves the issue when you make closed intake airflow tunnels and cut some devices from cooling at all.So you can create one tunnel which covers HDD and SSD, another to cover RAMs, optionally WiFi module, cause those pards could locally make the chasis to cross the 35°C barrier, but the better you make the aluminium part of it, the better the temperature will spread.But those parts can be cooled by closed intake airflow while the "cutted" can be cooled by this passive part.What about that? The aluminium body will not freeze your hands in winter, but will not be overheating at any point, especially if active heatsinks are separated from the aluminium body properly.I'd buy a laptop like that, even if it made the price 200 dollars higher.

The transition to SSD in Enterprise systems

Go Hybrid!

Feb 16, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

Enterprise PCs usually don't need space, but speed is always a benefit. I'd prefer Hybrid drives totally. For really small amount of money you can get a whopping agility increase - there is about 4 GBs of frequently used data, the rest is "read once per day", can be stored on the HDD without decreasing the benefit.

Online Memory

Feb 3, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Currently everyone need to carry a laptop or their smartphones to access their valuable files everywhere they go, say office etc. Has anyone ever wondered if they could turn any PC to their own PC with their operating system, and all the personalization they have made, just from a login. It may sound magical, but if it was possible then you can access your desktop from any PC in the world. And imagine about a world where you never have to worry about getting low of memory to store your world, or loosing valuable data on theft or damage of your device. So I am trying to resolve such problems through this idea of Online Memory. I suggest a device which perform as the online memory which comes in-build to any PC. This device act as a substitute for Hard-disk. It functions as a hard-disk, but it doesn't have a definite memory, like 80GB etc. Instead of saving your files in the device, it uploads everything to the cloud. I have developed a basic block diagram of the device which could define its parts and how it works..Follow the Link below:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BypNqsg2AaIJWXNLT0VjY3drZmM/edit?usp=sharing
