Tapewise Update

Tapewise releaseData Product Services Ltd. are pleased to announce the latest release of the Tapewise software. This is a recommended upgrade which is full of improvements, new hardware support and a couple of minor bug fixes, full list is available in the "Read more..." option below.

Our biggest new feature is the switch from static text to HTML reports at the end of a task, these include a mini TEM graph which is click-able to see a full size one. This is an option which needs to be changed in the setup screen so that the results are shown as HTML instead of plain text!

Added : Warning on read test, if the block size is larger than the allowed size in memory. This shows incorrect throughput.
