Very nice PCIe 3 + NVMe based SSD if you really want fast non-volatile storage. If I was due to replace my still excellent OCZ Revodrive 3 x2 now it would be with one of these.

Every business should at least have considered using load balanced WANs.

Reuters bring up the old debate about net neutrality in their article concerning the expanding percentage of Internet traffic being video. Here are my thoughts on net neutrality:
Internet throughput could be expanded to fully meet demand at all times, but then it would be more expensive for everyone. To keep prices low for everyone Internet throughput should be close to fully utilised. This means at times throughput will be above capacity. If some people are prepared to pay more for priority traffic flow that ultimately helps everyone, as more money is available to improve the service. Also, if my Internet connection is important to me or my organisation I want to be able to pay for a faster service, even though that will use more of the Internet throughput capacity.
Concerning differentiating between traffic types; I want low priority stuff to go slower than high priority stuff, regardless of who it comes from.
I have one caveat in my pro-differentiation stance: If Internet services have spare headroom I expect my traffic to have the same priority as traffic from users paying for a premium service, although more of the traffic may be theirs if they are paying for a faster service.

This sounds like the sort of chip that would fit with my notion of myrmidon access points.
