Best Batman gadgets of all time

Batman is known as the ultimate ‘man with a plan’ – an ultra-prepared, impeccably skilled, unflappably cool crimefighter who always has the right tool for the job.

And when we say tools, we mean the arsenal of groovy gadgets Batman keeps stashed away for just the right occasion – from Batarangs, to grappling hooks, to Bat-shark repellent and beyond – some of which are just as iconic as the Caped Crusader himself.

So without further ado, here are the ten best Bat-Gadgets of all time!

Intel’s DAOS tops the IO500 speed challenge for HPC storage

Intel’s Distributed Application Object Storage (DAOS) object storage system – now open-sourced, but developed to make use of its super-fast Optane storage – came out top this summer in the IO500, which measures high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, software and file system combinations against each other.

DAOS arrived in 2015, and is an object storage system designed around Intel’s 3D Xpoint Optane technology, which provides something approaching the high-speed access capabilities of RAM but with persistent storage.

Intel wants DAOS to be a successor to the Lustre file system, which it previously held rights to but sold to DDN in 2018. In the November 2019 IO500, Lustre came third with a score of 453.68 while DAOS was second with 933.64, just behind winner WekaIO with its Matrix system.
