EXO U Inc. and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Partner to Make Classrooms More Collaborative

EXO U Inc. ("EXO U" or the "corporation") announced its agreement with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., to be an authorized referral partner to promote, bundle, and refer EXO U's Ormiboard to new and current Samsung customers. As part of the partnership announced on Sept. 27, 2016, Samsung will bundle Ormiboard with new and current educational packages, and also offer it as a standalone feature to current Samsung customers. Samsung will incorporate Ormiboard functionality on large-format displays, interactive displays, Chromebooks, Android devices, and more. Ormiboard is a device-agnostic digital learning environment that transforms any device into an easy-to-use whiteboarding tool, extending collaboration beyond a board or panel on the wall to all 1:1 or BYOD devices. With Ormiboard, teachers can easily create and customize lessons and activities using a floating toolset to insert more than 500 vector clip art images, pictures, shapes, text, tiles, sounds, actions, and more. Teachers can instantly push content and activities to students' devices, jump to external content, simultaneously view multiple student sessions on one screen, and select any student's activity to appear on the front-of-class display. Ormiboard's expanding library of templates and searchable content covers all subject areas and includes quick quizzes, click-and-drag assignments, and games. Ormiboard also features a robust suite of device-management tools that have been customized for Samsung. Educators will be able to lock and unlock students' Samsung devices, specific pages, and more—helping keep students on task during lessons while still personalizing their experiences with content and activities. Ormiboard is also available directly to teachers worldwide.

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Unveils the Samsung 960 PRO and 960 EVO

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. unveiled the Samsung 960 PRO and 960 EVO, its newest solid state drives (SSDs). The V-NAND based, M.2 form factor SSDs were built on the company’s category-defining Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD leadership. With powerful performance, endurance and capacity topped with all new and more robust Samsung Magician software package, Samsung continues to accelerate the NVMe era. Packed with more technology and innovation than ever, the 960 PRO and 960 EVO are designed for users who seek smaller and faster storage solutions that deliver higher bandwidth and lower latency for processing massive amounts of data for everything from gaming and large file transfers to 4K video rendering, data analytics and more on their ultra-thin notebooks and PCs. Both the 960 PRO and 960 EVO use the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) Gen.3 x4 lane interface and are compliant with NVMe specifications to realize effective use of the high-speed PCIe bus and optimize both hardware and software configurations to take advantage of the NVMe SSD technology. The SSDs feature Samsung Dynamic Thermal Guard technology to manage performance during extreme workloads. The 960 PRO and 960 EVO SSDs redefine the personal computer performance, in part attributed to new controller which raises the bar of consumer SSD performance. The 960 PRO delivers peak sequential read and write transfer speeds of 3,500 MB/s and 2,100 MB/s, respectively, and random read and write IOPS of up to 440,000 and 360,000. M.2 NVMe- SSD, the 960 PRO will also offer 2 terabyte (TB) capacity, which is higher capacity commercially available for M.2 NVMe SSDs, along with 512GB and 1TB versions. The 960 PRO’s high density was made possible by Samsung V-NAND technology and the uniquely restructured package design. As user capacity demand trends continue to rise, the high-density 960 PRO capacities are poised to conveniently meet the needs of personal data and information storage. The 960 PRO promises additional reliability and endurance with the five-year limited warranty and up to 1.2 petabytes written (PBW), whichever occurs first, for the 2TB capacity. The 960 EVO is available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities and provide users with next-generation personal computing performance. The new Samsung Intelligent TurboWrite technology makes its debut in the 960 EVO and accelerates sequential read and write speeds, that reach peaks of 3,200 MB/s and 1,900 MB/s respectively. The 960 EVO’s random read speed reaches up to 380,000 IOPS and random write speed up to 360,000 IOPS. The 960 EVO comes with a three-year limited warranty and up to 400 terabytes written (TBW), whichever occurs first, for the 1TB capacity version.
