Library » 2012 Showcase

SAN JOSE -- May 9, 2012 -- Today at the STA (www.scsita.org) Technology Showcase event co-located with the May T10 Standards meeting, a newly innovated Windows offloaded data transfer (ODX) technology was exhibited by Microsoft, Dell, HP, IBM and NetApp. Windows ODX enables the host system to interact with the storage arrays to perform data movement without consuming computer network bandwidth or host CPU cycles. By putting the storage array in charge of the data transfer, the server is left to perform other tasks. Microsoft and storage array partners have cooperated to develop a new T10 standard that specifies the range of blocks to be moved at the file level. This is a completely new way of doing data block movement within and between storage arrays. This capability is now available in Windows Server 2012 Beta and ODX capable storage arrays.
