If so, was it a block level
or file level transfer?
The system extracts video quality at the macro block level
from the Elementary Stream (ES) and reports results to a PC using Ethernet networking (TCP/IP, UDP, SNMP).
Like the virtualization engine, Storage Tank is designed to improve capacity use through central management of all file system data and unify it with the block level
data on the SAN.
It greatly reduces storage system complexities and simplifies designs of file level and block level
storage appliances, intelligent switch implementations, high-end and mid-range RAID arrays, and intelligent host adapters and storage blades.
File virtualization (which can work in DAS and NAS as well as SAN), provides a virtual file system layer between files and block level
The first product in the Platform -- the SoCFIT(TM) software solution -- analyzes the soft error risk of a system-on-chip (SoC) at full chip and block level
, giving designers insight into which blocks may be the major contributors to the over all soft error rate (SER), and enabling them to perform trade-off analyses between various design elements to meet their targets.
Host software centrally manages security and locking through to the block level
by managing allocations, authorizations, authentications, and locks.
Continued consolidation in the marketplace could pave the way for a new breed of storage management applications, based on virtualization, that operate in a highly granular way at the logical (file) level (and are particularly important with regard to data archiving to meet compliance requirements), as well as at the physical block level
