QVISION version 2.0 is a real-time, view-based network monitoring tool that provides visibility into all the activities on networks, connected systems and applications. QVISION resides on the network at the Internet connection and inside the network, monitoring traffic flows and detecting unnatural network patterns. New features for QVISION 2.0 include a behavior view, a non-signature-based method of exposing network, policy and security issues based on equations linking event properties in real time; intelligent alerting, triggers set off by specific predetermined behaviors; and selective application content capture, a tool that allows users to configure the desired level of content capture.

Western Digital released a new version of its serial ATA (SATA) 10,000RPM WD Raptor hard drives. The new Raptor drives offer 74GB of storage capacity, Ultra/150 Command Queuing (CQ) technology and Rotary Accelerometer Feed Forward (RAFF) technology. Raptor drives are designed for enterprise-level specifications, with 1.2 million hours of mean time between failures, 10,000RPM, an average of 4.5ms seek time and a five-year warranty. Ultra/150 CQ technology optimizes the sequence of data transfers between the host and hard drive for increased transfer efficiency. RAFF technology maintains hard drive performance in high-vibration environments. In addition, the Raptor 74GB drive utilizes fluid dynamic bearings to reduce noise and increase reliability.
