In any iSCSI software and hardware deployment, one must thoroughly understand the nature of its deployment, notably first, is how it affects its present infrastructure within the organization and its COSTS. Needs or requirements should be first established before comparative assessment of the nature of its application is considered, because for all you know software iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) initiators or hardware iSCSI initiators were just too much complicated.


The iSCSI protocol has obtained following as a method of presenting block storage devices over a network taking into account design considerations and deployment options, generally, trade-offs and factors to consider when deploying iSCSI storage. Basically, iSCSI is a network protocol utilizing TCP to transfer SCSI commands to enable the use of the already established TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Internet Protocol) networks as a SAN (Storage Area Network). iSCSI presents SCSI targets and devices to iSCSI initiators with SCSI over Fibre Channel (FC), unlike NAS (Network-attached Storage) that introduces devices at the file level, iSCSI create block devices through the network much like any other block storage devices.

Self-driving truck that’s built to crash comes to Colorado

Self-driving truck that’s built to crash comes to Colorado: "Self-driving truck that’s built to crash comes to Colorado"

Like other self-driving trucks, this modern safety vehicle takes a traditional body (with subtle mods) and adds autonomous tech to the mix. The software comes from Kratos Defense and Security, a company that specializes in military drones and missile targeting systems. On the road, the truck crawls behind a regular car hooked up to precise GPS. This vehicle emits a signal that the robotruck uses to maintain its speed, position, and heading. On top of that, it uses its own radar to avoid obstacles.

Luxury vehicles from the 1930s were nearly aircraft carrier-long. It was the art deco era dominated by seemingly never ending clean lines. So it's no surprise that the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is over six meters long (about 20 feet) and has a single line that runs the length of the vehicle. Hell, the back the car is inspired by yachts and called a "boat tail." In other words, it's going impossibly to find parking for it.

Usually when we do these types of write-ups, they’re concept cars. Something dreamt up by a designer with a real command of the Adobe Creative Suite. This time around, however, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pickup Truck is the real McCoy.
The first pickup produced by the German automotive company was introduced in Cape Town, South Africa – and is set to be released in that country, as well as the European, Latin American, and Australian markets. The higher-end version of the truck will come with a V6 engine that can put out 254 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through an optional manual transmission. Of course, because it is a pickup truck from a luxury car maker, the car will come with a plush interior. We’re talking a 5.4-inch color multimedia display, an optional leather interior, and smartphone integration. Who knows. If this does well enough maybe they’ll eventually release the truck for the American market.
