Origin Storage welcomes impending wave of USB 3.0 devices

(PresseBox) ( Basingstoke, )
Origin Storage, the storage systems integration specialist, has welcomed news that several IT hardware companies are developing USB 3.0 standard devices, ready for commercial shipment next year.

Andy Cordial, Origin's managing director, said that reports from the Intel Developer Forum that the first USB 3.0 controller has been certified by the USB-IF (http://preview.tinyurl.com/...) is excellent news.

"But that's not all - several vendors at the forum, which opened for a three-day run in San Francisco on Tuesday have indicated that the first USB 3.0 devices will be available in stores by the end of the year," he said.

"As a result, users can look forward to enjoying data transfer speeds of around 250 megabytes a second, compared to the relatively pedestrian rates of 20/30 MB a second seen on USB 2.0 devices, which means the end of eSATA connectivity" he added.

Cordial cautioned that the arrival of USB 3.0 will herald a surge in the use of USB sticks and portable magnetic drives as never before in the workplace, because of their speed and convenience.

Companies, he explained, need to start working now on their IT security systems, and in particular, their policy enforcement technologies, as when the USB 3.0 phenomenon takes off, it will be something of a tidal wave.

"The good news is that the real wave won't start until the spring of next year, giving company IT managers six months to prepare for the increasingly widespread usage of these devices," he said.

"And when you think that these devices can hoover up data at the rate of a gigabyte every four seconds, it's clear that the use of secure USB 3.0 devices - USB sticks, portable drives and a variety of other portable units - is going to be a must-have in the corporate data storage stakes," he added.
