Microsoft to slash cloud-connection rights for stand-alone Office

Yesterday, 06:52 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Microsoft last week announced sweeping changes to Office's support rules, which will push more corporate customers to the Office 365 subscription model.

The support policies introduced Thursday will cut in half the time that non-subscription versions of Office -- usually labeled "perpetual" as a nod to the licenses which, once purchased, let customers run the software as long as they want -- can connect to Microsoft cloud-based services. These include Microsoft-hosted Exchange email, the OneDrive for Business storage service and Skype for Business, the corporate edition of Microsoft's video-calling service.

Under the new rules, owners of perpetual-license versions of Office will be able to use those services only during the first half of their 10-year support lifecycle, the portion Microsoft dubs "mainstream." Currently, those customers may connect to cloud services such as Exchange mailboxes for the full decade of Microsoft's combined mainstream and "extended" support.

3D NAND to make up half of all flash memory production

Yesterday, 04:02 PM

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

3D NAND, which stacks layer upon layer of flash cells atop one another like a microscopic skyscraper, will become the prominent technology for all flash memory this year, according to a new report.

According to DRAMeXchange's latest forecast, NAND flash manufacturers have focused their efforts on converting fabrication plants to 3D NAND, which is denser, faster and less expensive to produce than traditional 2D (planar) NAND.

WD Toshiba 3D NAND BiCS Toshiba

BiCS (Bit Cost Scaling) is the vertical stacking or 3D technology that WD and partner Toshiba use to produce solid state drives and other NAND flash products. Their latest memory stores three bits of data per cell and stacks those cells 64-layers high.
