toshibaToshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) and Toshiba Memory Corporation (‘TMC”), a subsidiary of Toshiba today received an order from the Superior Court of California for the County of San Francisco (the Court) regarding the motion for preliminary injunctive relief made by SanDisk LLC (SanDisk), a subsidiary of Western Digital Corporation (Western Digital) (NASDAQ: WDC), relating to Western Digital’s access to certain information stored on certain databases owned by TMC.The Court ordered, among other things, for TMC to resume Western Digital Technologies, Inc.’s (WDT) access to certain data stored on TMC’s databases. While TMC will comply with the order, it will not affect TMC’s memory business, including TMC’s decision to make unilateral investments in Fab 6 at Yokkaichi Operations.Dr. Yasuo Naruke, Senior Executive Vice President of Toshiba Corporation stated that, “While we are aware of the Judge’s ruling today, we do not expect any of the current ongoing litigation with Western Digital and SanDisk to limit us in proceeding with our business plans.

Toshiba Wins Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology Award at Flash Memory Summit 2017

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 12 agosto 2017

toshibaToshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed technology leader, is pleased to announce it has won the Flash Memory Summit “Best of Show” award for Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology in the Data Center category. Toshiba exceeded Facebook’s ambitious IO Determinism (IOD) performance target with their NVM Express® (NVMe™)1 based drives modified with “sets” architecture, showing improvements of up to two orders of magnitude at 99.999% Quality of Service (QoS) level.“This Flash Memory Summit, we were proud to demonstrate IO Determinism and deliver on Facebook’s direction, while developing the NVMe industry standard and working on the interface and benchmarking. Prior industry SSD implementations created read tail latencies greater than most network latencies and were preventing further data center-level optimizations. IOD technology offers a 40X to 100X reduction in these read tail latencies as well as faster read and write bandwidth in mixed workloads,” said Steven Wells, engineering fellow for data center architecture at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “In my 25 plus years of designing SSDs, this is the first time I’ve seen this kind of dramatic improvement in any performance parameter with a single architecture change.”
“Quality of Service is of paramount importance to meet the latency and IOPS performance requirements of mission critical applications,” said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc. “We are proud to recognize Toshiba and Facebook for IO Determinism by demonstrating the capability to solve the noisy neighbor latency outlier problem with modest changes to the classical NVMe protocol.”
Toshiba’s IOD demo shows the QoS difference by comparing two Facebook Lightning systems. One system showcases Toshiba solid state drives (SSDs) with IOD firmware and the other is equipped with standard Toshiba drives.Toshiba is the inventor of flash and a leading supplier of flash memory and SSDs with one of the broadest portfolios of SSDs in the industry.

Toshiba Medical Represents Attractive Investment in Diagnostic Imaging Market, says GlobalData Analyst

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 26 febbraio 2016

londonLONDON, UK (GlobalData) Investing in Toshiba Medical, which is seeking potential partners, is likely to deliver strong returns for companies looking to expand into the diagnostic imaging space, particularly in the Japanese market, according to an analyst with research and consulting firm GlobalData.Thanks to a growing population with a steady demand for non-invasive diagnostic procedures, imaging devices have remained a lucrative investment and GlobalData forecasts that the global diagnostic imaging market will be valued at $42.4 billion by 2020.As Sarah Janer, GlobalData’s Analyst covering Medical Devices, explains: “Toshiba Medical is a steady performer and its sales make up 10% of the thriving global market, which is tempting for companies looking to break into diagnostic imaging.
“Japanese firms are especially interested, as Toshiba Medical possesses 19.2% of the diagnostic imaging market in Japan. Canon Inc. and Fujifilm are stepping up to bid, and while both offer digital radiography devices, heavy investment in Toshiba Medical could expand their range to computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems.” GlobalData estimates that the current markets for CT and MRI devices are expanding at compound annual growth rates of 14.3% and 10.4%, respectively.Janer notes: “Investment opportunities are so attractive that Toshiba’s CEO Masashi Muromachi has hinted at already receiving opening bids significantly higher than the reported asking price of $3 billion for an 80% share. Canon and Fujifilm have partnered with other firms to improve the strength of their bid, demonstrating a strong eagerness to invest.“Certainly, as both companies have less than a 3% share of the global diagnostic imaging market, a buyout could significantly boost their chances of competing with imaging titans like Siemens or GE Healthcare.”
Although Toshiba ranks fourth for global market share, collaboration could lead to innovation and some fierce competition down the road, depending on what percentage of Toshiba Medical is sold off.Janer continues: “A 51% percent company share could result in some collaboration, but Toshiba’s restructuring plans would need to succeed. Full investment would result in a more stable outlook and a market share increase of up to 20% for the successful buyer, according to GlobalData.”
