Recently Facebook was granted a patent in the US for a system which detects items like alcoholic drinks and snacks from users’ photos. Facebook plans to turn its users into advertisement stars through this automatic scanning system. Facebook would take those pictures and send them to the respective brands and those brands will use these pictures to post for other Facebook users (if the said brands choose to do this). The way this system works can be explained better with an example: Let us say that you posted the above picture on Facebook. It has Coca-cola, Jack Daniels and Grey...

Just eleven years ago, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) released the Display Port 1.0 standard with an 8.64Gbit/s data rate. Since then, multiple improvements have been made, but not as large as the ones announced last week. VESA unveiled the new DisplayPort 2.0 specification with the max payload of 77.37Gbps. It is expected to start shipping with monitors in late 2020. The new near 80Gbps max bandwidth is 10 times of that of the original DisplayPort 1.0 and 3x more than its latest update (i.e. DisplayPort 1.4) to the standard. These improvements will allow the port to be the...

What is a Cryptocurrency? A cryptocurrency is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses strong cryptography to secure financial transactions, control the creation of additional units and verify the transfer of assets. In essence, they are limited entries in a database that no one can change unless specific conditions are fulfilled. The Emergence of Cryptocurrencies. Although during the 90’s tech boom many attempts were made to create a digital currency, they all inevitably failed due to fraud and financial problems. All these systems used a Trusted Third...

Over the recent past, new updates for Google Chrome are happening very frequenty. These changes come as a very small part for the browser but are followed by major changes. Chrome will shorten links automatically As you know, some sites have very high links because of very large nesting categories and menus. Because of this wee will have problems sharing them on social networks.Due to this, Google Chrome is aiming for an interesting approach which will automatically shorten all the links that are long. On Google Chrome 64, just share a link from the browser's share menu to see the...

Since development of the first hard drive in 1956, which weighted over a thousand kilograms and stored only 5MB of data, storage technology has come a very long way. Modern drives can now store up to 12TB (i.e. 12 million MB) of data and reach up to 150 IOPS (i.e. Input/output Operations Per Second). Over the past few years however, the speed of innovation has slowed down and the rate at which the HDD capacity increases annually has decreased, as we are reaching the maximum possible data density on a single platter. This has led to development of new HDD storage technology such as filling the...

Solid State Drives are a relatively new technology and are way too expensive to implement as an enterprise-level storage option. Hard drives have always been the go-to solution for large-scale storage needs. As the other computer components got better, the hard drives were not able to keep up with their rate of innovation. Researchers were simply running out of space where to put new platters into the standard 3.5-inch form factor. Western Digital has come up with a solution to this problem in a very unexpected way. They decided to fill the Hard Drives with Helium, a gas that has a density...

We have officially launched our SSD VPS servers. For decades, hard disk drives have been used as the main storage devices in the IT field, but with the latest technological advancements, solid state storage has been becoming the next step in performance improvements for both consumer desktop computers and servers alike. Over the past few years, SSDs have become significantly larger in storage size, as well as becoming more affordable, allowing them to be implemented in more complex server configurations. Our VPS servers were previously all based on high-speed enterprise-grade Hard Disk...

What is NVMe

WHAT IS NVMe NVMe(i.e. non-volatile memory express) is a storage protocol that defines a command set and feature set for PCIe-based solid-state drives (SSDs) . NVMe created to accelerate the transfer of data between enterprise and client systems and SSDs over a computer high-speed PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) bus.   NVMe is a new standard Older standard by name AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) was designed for hard drives. Since the introduction of non-volatile storage (e.g. NAND and MRAM), the industry must have developed a software interface that...
