Unit 6 Analysis 2: Memory Cost

1. Your OS will use the hard drive as a "swap file" or virtual memory, if your PC runs out of RAM while you are working away. Using your hard drive as memory causes a serious performance hit, as hard drives are slower than RAM. You must have enough memory, adding more does not help if you are not doing anything that needs more memory. Today, a modern PC and a modern OS need about 4 gigs to achieve this for most standard users. You want enough RAM so the OS doesn't start using the hard drive as memory.

2. The user with the three 200 GB hard disks has the advantage, because he can utilize all three disks simultaneously, while the other one can only use that single disk. The user with the three disks will probably be able to do more, faster.

3. A typical home computer user would require RAID technology if they use their computer as a home office and have data that is invaluable or irreplaceable. The option is becoming more popular because of the speed increase, and or data reliability you achieve when you set RAID up. A typical business user would use RAID to provide data redundancy, fault tolerance, increased capacity, and increased performance. Data redundancy protects the data from hard drive failures. This benefit is good for companies or individuals that have critical or important data to protect, or just anyone that's paranoid about losing data. Fault tolerance goes hand in hand with redundancy in providing a better over-all storage system. RAID also provides increased capacity by combining multiple drives.…...

How I came to those years is right now in 2013 we are able to buy a 5 TB hard drive and the number is increasing rapidly year by year so with those numbers that is my prediction. As of right now for a hundred dollars you can purchase 8 GB’s of RAM, ten years ago you could purchase 1 GB of RAM for around two hundred dollars, so if you were going to predict how much RAM you could buy in ten years for a hundred dollars you could predict around 16 GB’s of RAM based on previous prices on RAM. Also as of right now you can purchase a 1 TB hard drive for around a hundred dollars depending on the make and model, so in ten years I say we will also have or about to have a 100 TB hard drive. So in ten years I believe based on prices on hard drives within the past that for a hundred dollars you will be able to buy a 50 TB hard drive....

Nt1110 Analysis 1: Memory Cost

...Memory Cost By Frank Bolton Phillips NT1110 Friday 6p.m. This is to help me discover and appreciate the difference in the cost of RAM and ROM in today’s market as well as where is where it came from and where it is going. It is easy to find information on this subject as everyone seems to want in on the computer boom and profit from the ever growing demand for faster computers with huge memory. Ten years ago you would have found yourself spending over $2,000 to get just 1GB of RAM. As computer manufacturers recoup cost of R&D, the prices start to drop. Today it would only cost around $20 to purchase the same 1GB of DDR3 providing considerable savings over a decade ago. What appears to be the best deal for the money is 2GB on RAM which runs around $40 and slows enough memory to run most applications. There are other types of memory available to all of us if you’re willing to pay the price of admission. For example, some of the more exotic types of RAM can still run hundreds, even thousands of dollars. For instance, I found Super Talent 1TB STT RAID DRIVE GS RAID0 for $4,815.00 on Memory Suppliers.com. They also offer iRam 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM PC2-5300 667MHz for $119.00. I find this is a very nice web site that is easy to navigate through and find and compare the memory you’re looking for. The following table I got from Archive Builders web site. It shows the growth to cost difference for 32 years. This was determined by the increase of the density of...

...Video Summary 6 Video 3.13 Summary – User State Migration Tool — This video covers the User State Migration Tool (USMT) which transfers all the settings from your old computer to your new computer. The USMT is found on a domain; you can also use a tool called Files and Settings Transfer Wizard—both of these applications are found in the system tools directory. These tools make using your new computer much like your previous computer with less pain. This helps the company/department become more efficient and would in effect be less downtime and thus less painful than the old way. Topics— * User State Migration Tool (USMT) * Files and Settings Transfer Wizard Terms— * User State Migration Tool (USMT) * Is a Microsoft command line utility program intended to allow advanced users, comfortable with Scripting language, to transfer files and settings between PCs. This task is also performed by Windows Easy Transfer, recommended for general users. * Files and Settings Transfer Wizard * Is a file transfer and backup program which allows backing up or transferring user files and settings between computers. Summary— I personally never knew these programs/applications existed. Now that I know, I can use these instead of burning files to DVD/CD then transferring the information in that archaic method. And all this time I thought it was a pain to work in a windows environment. However, I still don’t understand how the new and old PCs are to be......

Nt1110 - Unit 6, Research Paper 1: Network Attached Storage

...BRIEN TRINH NT1110 Unit 6 Research Paper 1 Network Attached Storage 1> Internet information on network-attached storage: * Definition: Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard drive which is set up with its own network address and provides file-level data storage services to other devices on the network. It allows both programming and files to be served faster because they are not competing for processor resources. NAS usually configured with a web browser and do not require a keyboard, mouse or monitor. Unlike other external hard drives, NAS has a processor. Some NAS devices will run using standard operating system like MS Windows, many other NAS devices use their own proprietary operating system. A NAS can store any data that appears in form of files, including email boxes, Web content, remote system backups, etc… Overall the use of a NAS parallels those traditional file servers. * NAS devices come in many varieties depending on you build it or purchase it from a vendor. The speed is usually 1GB Ethernet connection but it can be changed to multiple GB to 10GB, fiber optic by adding PCI-e network cards. * The capacity range also can be varied. If you have a port replication and add-on hardware drive controller cards, there really isn’t a limit on size. For example: if you have a board with 6 SATA ports which can be replicated (1 to 5 port) allowing 30 drives to be attached. Then if 3TB drives were used in RAID 50 that would be 72TB of...

Nt1110 Unit 5 Analysis

...Unit 6 Research Paper 1 Network Attached Storage ITT Tech Network attached storage (NAS) is basically a server that acts as hard drive that’s attached to a network. This connection to a network allows anyone who is also connected to the network the ability to access the hard drive. The NAS come in many sizes and different capabilities. The network connection that the NAS uses can be almost any that are available. The standard Ethernet connection is the most common connection by there are also systems that use a wireless connection or even a fiber optic connection for extremely fast transfer speeds. The storage of NAS systems can vary greatly. There are consumer models with a fixed amount of storage, and then the professional versions that have the capacity of many terabytes that can be upgraded when new drives become available. With the numerous amount of drives the chance of corrupted data and errors is always a possibility. With this possibility manufacturers have included the ability to arrange the drive into a RAID. The different RAID configurations allow users the protection from errors and data loss at the expense of storage space. NAS, unlike normal servers, do not require a keyboard, mouse, or monitor. They are usually managed from a remote terminal accessed via the NAS network connection. Some NAS systems use a web browser interface that uses the user’s web browser to interact with the NAS. Other systems use software that the manufacturer......

Memory Cost

...The price and capacities of RAM and hard drive storage have come a long way in the past 30 years. Take for instance, in 1981 an 18MB hard drive cost $2500, today a 1TB hard drive costs $150. In 1990 RAM costs were $50 per MB and today one can purchase 2GB RAM for approximately $50. that there is a strong exponential correlation in the capacity vs cost ratio, where r=0.9916. During the last 30 years the capacity per unit cost ratio has nearly doubled approximately every 14 months. The regression equation is given by: Many TB+ drives have become available which recently broken the $0.10/GB boundary, whilst the next milestone being $0.01/GB or $10/TB. If historical trends continue, then 10 years from now the cost per GB of hard drive capacity will become $0.0000351 per GB or $0.0351 per TB. For $100, one could purchase a 2,849TB drive 10 years from now, based on the analysis of historical trends. Although 120 PB drives are currently available in the server and super computing market, consumer grade hard drives aren’t available in these sizes, as the physical size and cost per PB is too great for the marketability in the consumer market. Based on historical trends, one could forecast the availability of a consumer level 100TB hard drive in the next five years. It must be noted all figures pertain to magnetic storage, solid state storage has been omitted for the sake of brevity....

The cost of hard drive space in 1980 was around 286 dollars per bit and today it is also just a very small fraction of a penny. According to Moore’s law the number of components in integrated circuits will double every year and a half since the invention of integrated circuits in 1958.

At NewEgg, 7200RPM 3TB drives are as low as $135 (4.5 cents per GB). 4TB drives started off with a small price premium, but have since fallen as low as $189 (4.7 cents per GB). That’s actually slightly lower than the graph shown above, but remember — it’s a weighted graph that covers the entire HDD market, rather than focusing on a single product. After having nearly doubled during the flood, we can safely say prices are trending slightly below the 2011 level. In 2011, SSD prices are down more than 66 percent over the past three years. Computerworld notes that consumer SSDs were typically coming in at about $3 per gigabyte in 2010, whereas today it is common to find SSDs clocking in at under $1 per gigabyte. That price point, $1 per gig, seems to be the magical tipping point for most folks—at or below that mark, SSDs begin to look like much more reasonable purchases. A quick survey of several online merchants shows popular brand and sizes, like the 256GB flavor of Crucial's SATA III M4 SSD, coming in at more like 80¢ per gigabyte, while even higher-priced disks like the Intel 520 are hovering......
