Annual CES kicked off today. We started the day by getting out a great PR with Marvell. The story is about scalable storage and top performance:

At 129 megabytes per second, Marvell and Tuxera’s NAS solution offers the fastest 2 GHz NAS performance on the market.



Coming to CES is all about meeting with customer and partners. It is always great to see partners thrive. One company I’m very happy we’re doing close cooperation with is Rockchip. They also had a bold announcement:

More than 80 percent of the Chinese tablet market is currently supported by Rockchip – a percentage that would make them a virtual behemoth in North America, clearly entrenching the company as the market leader in that country while laying the foundation for expansion into Europe and North America.



SD Association has its member goodies on show. Nice booth, and a lot of cool technology. Toshiba had the previously demoed FlashAir on show and there was also a related PR from SDA on combining SD memory and wifi chip in the same physical card:

This standard is applicable to full size SD/SDHC/SDXC and microSD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It taps into a billions-strong SD standards market for which manufacturers can develop products and consumers can reliably use Wireless LAN applications.

For this vision to become mainstream there is a lot of work to be done in the software side. Something we at Tuxera are working on.
