New Technology

GID  manufactures Silent Cube, a long-term data archiving product with redundant hard disk storage. This expandable little box, which is not much bigger than a bagel toaster, houses 12 SATA hard disks that preserves WORM (write once, read many) data in a manner that can persist if up to four drives fail. The Cube's controller writes the data using the same technology that NASA uses for deep-space communications.  Silent Cube is just that too: silent. It uses 7,200 RPM SATA drives, which do not require large cooling fans, and is quiet enough to sit on your desktop. The Cube uses low energy, can be accessed using SMB/CIFS (supports Active Directory) and NFS, and scales from 1 terabyte to a petabyte.

Avantstar manufacture of Quick View Plus 11 file viewing software, came to LTWC with support for Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) operating system. The 64-bit support extends to Internet Explorer and Outlook 2010 where users will be able to access Quick View in the context of Windows Explorer, IE, and Outlook.
