Belkin’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Keyboard Case and Cover is a folio-style cover and Bluetooth keyboard in one. It has well spaced TruType keys for responsive, accurate typing, and the stand allows for multiple viewing angles. In handheld media mode, the keyboard tucks away flat for touchscreen use. Users can recharge the keyboard with the included USB cable. It will stay charged for up to 67 hours of active battery life and up to 2,021 hours of standby battery life.

Enterprise Storage

The NetApp FAS8000-series of enterprise scale-out storage helps government agencies move, manage and store data across different cloud infrastructures — which is critical as agencies increasingly make use of multiple cloud environments (public, private and hybrid) to meet their business needs. NetApp delivers improved performance (up to 2x), better flash acceleration with up to 3x more flash and superior input/output flexibility. The FAS8000 also supports the new FlexArray virtualization software that allows multi-vendor storage systems to be unified and simplified into one pool of software-defined storage. The FAS8000 series enterprise storage system unifies SAN, NAS and storage virtualization into a single hybrid array, and is NetApp’s first FAS platform designed specifically for scale-out storage environments built on clustered Data ONTAP.
