For Sale – GTX765m Clevo based 13inch Laptop

Ok up for sale is a gaming laptop I bought from Cyberpower around 4-4 1/2 years ago.

It is a 13inch 1920×1280 screen and has a Nvidia GTX765 with Optimus tech.
Some other specs –
CPU is I7 4700mq
Ram – 16gb
128gb Msata drive
500gb Hdd
Intel hd4600 graphics

There is no dvd drive but it does have various other inputs such as USB 3 x 3 and a USB 2.0.

It is Cyberpower branded on the case but is the Clevo WS230st – Review One K33-3E (Clevo W230ST Barebones) Notebook

Itis in excellent condition with no dead pixels or marks on the screen. Only issue I can think of note is a strip that runs along the top of the keyboard which shows a little gap but has never actually come loose as such, have tried to show in the last picture.

I’ve restored the laptop and not sure how windows works with this but there is a code on the underside of the machine and a disc from Cyberpower with 8.1 although I had upgraded to Windows 10.

There is no box,only the laptop,charger and original quick guide with discs.

To be honest this laptop has had very little use over the years, did have it plugged into a 1080p 46 inch samsung for some gaming for a couple of months but other than that it has only been used for light browsing.

No idea on price for an item like this so have priced at £200 but will move on price.

Cloud-based networking becomes a reality

Enterprises have been hearing about cloud-based networking for years, mostly as something that was on the horizon and not as something to be concerned about quite yet. But as more companies turn to public and private cloud options, it’s time for IT managers to consider the impact cloud-based networking has on their operations.

Software and virtualization are taking precedence over physical network infrastructure, as IT managers discuss in our cover story, “Networking trends 2017: Cloud, wireless, pace change.” Companies are moving to replace costly equipment with software-defined technology and cloud services, like analytics and network management functions.

But moving to cloud-based networking is more of a step-by-step process rather than a tear down the house and build anew approach. According to Seattle-based Uptime Institute, a research and consulting organization aimed at maximizing efficiency and uptime in data centers and IT organizations, enterprises are moving to the cloud workload-by-workload and assessing applications as they go. Performance, risk, integration and costs are all top considerations in the process, according to the institute.

Another significant consideration is staff skill set. As cloud-based networking and other trends continue, the roles of network engineers are changing. In “How to become a network architect, from those who did it,” network managers explain the pros and cons of changing focus, but they all agree that the biggest change is mastering skills beyond technology and introducing more creativity and interpersonal skills to the mix.

Finally, mastering skills can only be done if it becomes a priority among universities. In “Learn SDN in school, experts urge today’s networking students,” we see that software-defined networking trends are leading more universities to introduce curriculum around that technology. Proponents argue that more classes and integration around SDN technologies are needed to keep up with trends.

For Sale – Alienware 17, i74710MQ, GTX 880M 8GB, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 500GB SSHD £700

I am selling my Alienware 17 laptop which was bought just over two years ago (So no warranty left). It is in excellent condition with no noticeable wear or tear as it has been very well looked after.

Mostly used for 3D and video editing it has spent most of it’s time in my office at work with a keyboard and mouse setup so the surface is still in excellent condition and not shiny from greasy hands like you see on a lot of pre-owned Alienwares.

Plays recent games at very good settings. I have attached some screenshots of Battlefield 1 being played on Ultra Settings (at 1080p) where it kept around the 55-60 fps mark and at Medium Settings (also at 1080p) where the fps would stay around the 70 to high 70 fps mark. You can see the Nvidia FPS counter in the top right hand corner of the monitor :)

The one thing about this laptop I have to disclose is that there is just one dead pixel on the screen. It’s not noticeable whilst playing games. I only noticed it because of doing work in Photoshop.

Windows 10 64bit is installed on the 256GB SSD (There’s a 500GB SSHD in there too!) and I have done a fresh re-install so you’re good to just fire it up and install your games! There is no pre-installed software to play DVDs. Included will be a usb drive that is set up as a recovery drive if you ever need/want to reinstall Windows 10 yourself.

Any questions, just ask! :)

Spec re-cap,

17″ 1080p screen (one dead pixel)
i7 4710MQ quad core
GTX 880M 8gb graphics card
16gb ram
256gb SSD (OS installed on this drive)
500gb SSHD
DVD drive (Buyer will need to source own software to play DVDs)

OH, and if someone would rather collect then I’ll also throw in an Alienware 17 laptop back pack and a CoolerMaster laptop cooler. I will not post these items though, they are freebies if you collect. :)

NetApp-SolidFire storage operating systems nudge closer

Nearly two years after acquiring SolidFire, NetApp is giving the all-flash platform and its technology a greater role in its product lineup.

Besides using SolidFire arrays as the key building block of the new NetApp HCI system, NetApp integrated SolidFire features into its flagship Ontap operating system.

NetApp-SolidFire integration appeared in the new operating systems — NetApp Ontap 9.3 and SolidFire Element OS 10 — released at the NetApp Insight conference last week in Las Vegas.

NetApp-SolidFire enhancements include the ability to replicate NetApp SnapMirror snapshots from Element OS systems to Ontap-based storage. Support backup targets include cloud-connected NetApp AltaVault backup appliances and StorageGrid Webscale object storage. NetApp also integrated quality of service from Element OS into Ontap 9.3.

NetApp also introduced its Elio virtual support engine, which is built on the artificial intelligence powered by IBM Watson cognitive computing, and updated Active IQ cloud-based predictive analytics for health diagnostics across its Data Fabric technologies. NetApp also released StorageGrid 11.

NetApp: SolidFire’s Element OS broadens the reach of Ontap, Data Fabric

All-flash array startup SolidFire originally launched Active IQ as part of Element. The $870 million NetApp-SolidFire acquisition in 2015 accomplished a pair of goals that had eluded NetApp. SolidFire SF-Series all-flash arrays allowed it to scrap its long-delayed FlashRay product, which was only available as a single node. NetApp this week also finally entered the hyper-converged infrastructure market with the help of SolidFire storage.

Quality of service is something we could have done sooner in Ontap, but now it’s state of the art.
Octavian TanaseSVP of Ontap software and systems group, NetApp

The SolidFire Element OS was written with native support for quality of service (QoS). By integrating it in Ontap 9.3, NetApp is eyeing customers who run a greater variety of applications with Clustered Ontap operating system than they did with Ontap 7-Mode.

The NetApp-SolidFire adaptive QoS in Ontap 9.3 allows customers to set a floor and ceiling for performance and use “smart bursting” as applications require it, said Octavian Tanase, a senior vice president of NetApp Data Ontap software and systems group.

“Quality of service is something we could have done sooner in Ontap, but now it’s state of the art. As we upgraded from Ontap 7-Mode to Clustered Ontap, that’s when customers started to deploy heterogeneous workloads, to get capacity and performance on one system,” Tanase said.

NetApp ‘democratizes’ DR, targets data security

NetApp MetroCluster in Ontap 9.3 allows disaster recovery workloads to run across IP-based networks, in addition to traditional Fibre Channel support. Running across IP eliminates the need to install SAS-to-FC bridges or expensive switches.

“We think we have been able to democratize DR,” Tanase said.

Ontap 9.3 adds multifactor authentication, a configurable engine that requires users to invoke a second token to gain access to data. The update supports external key management for WORM compliance with NetApp SnapLock volume management.

NetApp StorageGrid 11 added the ability to mirror on-premises data to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. It permits authorized users to run Apache Hive script in an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and mirror data to an Amazon S3 bucket.

StorageGrid 11 will notify Amazon Lambda to run facial recognition for security when a user requests images stored in an AWS.

NetApp also refreshed its OnCommand Insight management tool, most notably adding an analyzer for estimating AWS costs.
