SerialTek Enhances SATA Data Capture and Analysis Capability with the Introduction of The BusXpert Logic Adapter with SATA DEVSLP Support

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SerialTek announces today the availability of the the BusXpert Logic Adapter which allows simultaneous capture of both serial data and logic signals such as SATA DEVSLP. Used in conjunction with the SerialTek BusXpert Analyzer, the self-contained Logic Adapter converts logic signals into a serial data stream which can be displayed side by side with captured serial data.

The Logic Adapter can support up to 24 independent logic signals with user-set threshold values. These inputs are serialized by the Logic Adapter and transmitted over a SATA cable to the input channel of a BusXpert Analyzer. The entire capture and analysis capabilities offered by SerialTek's BusXpert software, such as triggers, searches and filters, are available to the captured logic signals as well as normal serial data. Special circuitry is built in to the Logic Adapter to support the newly defined SATA DEVSLP signal. DEVSLP is a slow rising logic signal intended to place storage devices into an extreme low-power state and is targeted for mobile and portable devices.

"SerialTek is proud to be the first company to offer simultaneous capture and display of both logic signals and serial data with a serial analyzer," said Dale Smith, SerialTek President and CTO. "SATA DEVSLP is an important standard in the low-power storage arena and developers need tools that allow them to view DEVSLP activity.  The Logic Adapter provides such a tool that allows low-power storage developers to work with external logic signals such as DEVSLP alongside serial data."

"End users want as much battery life as they can get, and standards like DEVSLP will help lower SSD power consumption and allow consumers to get the most out of their mobile and portable computing devices," said Ross Stenfort, Director of Storage Solutions, Flash Components Division, LSI Corporation. "Through the LSI SandForce® Trusted® program, LSI and SerialTek have worked closely to ensure that our mutual customers can easily integrate the power-saving features of DEVSLP into their new system designs."

Serialtek's line of BusXpert protocol analyzers is the industry's leader for its powerful triggering, high-speed search, and ultra-fast save and display capabilities. The SerialTek BusXpert Logic Adapter compliments the the BusXpert Protocol Analyzer by allowing simultaneous capture of serial data and logic signals such as SATA DEVSLP.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
The cloud provides an easy onramp to building and deploying Big Data solutions. Transitioning from initial deployment to large-scale, highly performant operations may not be as easy. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, will discuss the benefits, weaknesses, and performance characteristics of public and bare metal cloud deployments that can help you make the right decisions.
Cisco on Wedesday announced its intent to acquire privately held Metacloud. Based in Pasadena, Calif., Metacloud deploys and operates private clouds for global organizations with a unique OpenStack-as-a-Service model that delivers and remotely operates production-ready private clouds in a customer's data center. Metacloud's OpenStack-based cloud platform will accelerate Cisco's strategy to build the world's largest global Intercloud, a network of clouds, together with key partners to address cu...

BlueData aims to “democratize Big Data” with its launch of EPIC Enterprise, which it calls “the industry’s first Big Data software to enable enterprises to create a self-service cloud experience on premise.” This self-service private cloud allows enterprises to create 100-node Hadoop and Spark clusters in less than 10 minutes. The company is also offering a Community Edition via free download. We had a few questions for BlueData CEO Kumar Sreekanti about all this, and here's what he had to s...
Labor market analytics firm Wanted Analytics recently assessed the market for technology professionals and found that demand for people with proficient levels of Hadoop expertise had skyrocketed by around 33% since last year – it is true, Hadoop is hard technology to master and the labor market is not exactly flooded with an over-abundance of skilled practitioners. Hadoop has been called a foundational technology, rather than ‘just’ a database by some commentators – this almost pushes it towards...

Scene scenario: 10 am in a boardroom somewhere, second round of coffees served, Danish and donuts untouched, a quiet hush settles. “Well you know what guys? (and, by the use of the term guys I mean to include both sexes here assembled) – the trouble that we have as a company is that we are, to put it bluntly, just a little analytics poor,” said the newly appointed Chief Analytics Officer. That we should consider a firm to be analytically deficient or poor is a profound comment on our modern ag...
