SDK has announced the commercial shipment of 2.5-inch hard disk (HD) media with industry’s highest capacity of 500 gigabytes per disk. The new disk utilizes the 6th generation perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology, resulting in dramatic increase in recording density. The new product was developed as demand for high capacity HD media is on rise for such applications as PCs, Cloud computing as well as digital electric appliances. Read more
Development of a New Advance Encryption Scheme, a Potential Solution to Security Risk in Cloud Computing
In a joint development by NTT and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric made an announcement on development of new Novel encryption technology addressing security risk in cloud computing paradigm. The new scheme is a fine-grained encryption capable of sophisticated and fine-grained data transmission and access control. The new scheme uses a mathematical approach known as “dual pairing vector spaces”.
In fine-grained encryption various parameters are added to the ciphertext and decryption key in the encryption-decryption logic, where attributes and predicates on them become the parameter of the ciphertext or decryption key. Read more
Cloud Computing which many consider to be the major reviving factor in the IT industry all thanks to proliferation of advances web applications finding itself available to array of software applications such as storage and information sharing, CRM, personal management and payroll calculation to name a few. The idea of cloud as some people call it is nothing new, but its application by many vendors is just heating up. One such company is Ricoh that made an announcement on development of “App2Me” which is a Multi Function Printer (MFP). Read more
The introduction of 40Gbps optical transmission equipment in network backbone to meet the increasing volume of data communication in the network as a result of new service offerings such as cloud computing and on-line streaming and at the same time advancement in transmission speed has contributed in growing complexity and size of these optical equipment which resulted in needs for larger installation space and higher power consumption for these equipments. In order to meet the challenge of minimizing the size and power consumption of 40Gbps transponder, Fujitsu Optical Components has successfully developed a compact integrated 40Gbps DPSK Receiver with world’s lowest power consumption. The newly developed receiver which is used for 40Gbps optical transponders is capable of handling DPSK which is a primary format of phase modulation resulting in a more compact size and energy efficient transponders.

User’s accessibility to wide array of business systems and applications from anywhere and through any network connected device is being made possible through emergence of cloud computing paradigm. Through this model which sees the consolidation of servers and storage into data centers results in controlled IT administration cost while maintaining operational security and improving energy efficiency. At the same time, the wide spread of broadband and mobile technology and ease of access to wide variety of wireless services has resulted in a penetration of IT in covering wider segment of society providing a flexible work style and mobile working environment. In response to these new trends and subsequent market needs Fujitsu launched the FENICS II network service back in 2007 in an effort to connect individuals to their business in a safe and reliable manner. Now, based on successful deployment of FENICS II services, Fujitsu has lunched FENICS II Universal Connect in enhancing user authentication, visualize access audit trails and at the same time provide flexibility to support various terminal types plus improve compatibility with the cloud computing environment.
