Samsung says new U.S. offices are its ‘biggest investment in Silicon Valley’ to date

Samsung officially opened the doors to its new 1.1-million-square-foot Silicon Valley offices Thursday, more than 30 years after its arrival in the San Jose tech corridor in 1983.

The building will house various research labs dedicated to semiconductors, LEDs and displays, staff in sales and marketing, and other support areas, the company said.

“[We are] laying the groundwork for a more aggressive pace of growth over the next several decades,” said Samsung’s chief executive, Dr. Oh-Hyun Kwon, at the grand opening ceremony.

Meanwhile, the company’s president of its U.S.-based device solutions operations, Jaesoo Han, said that the move “represents a major milestone as we open our most strategically important Samsung facility in the U.S., and also our biggest investment in Silicon Valley.”

Samsung also said that it has established a $ 1 million STEM College Education Scholarship Fund. In its own words:

Deserving university students who are currently enrolled in STEM-focused programs at a California State or University of California school will benefit from this program, beginning with a $ 50,000 gift to San Jose State University this year. Each scholarship will cover tuition and living expenses for one year.

But the announcement of the new office has been largely overshadowed by news in virtual reality today: we reported that the Samsung Gear VR will launch as a consumer product this November for $ 99. (You can also read our roundup from that event here.)

Earlier this week, Samsung unveiled its new fonts-inspired Serif TVs, and shared more about how it relies on startups to stay ahead on technological innovation.

If you happen to be passing through the area, Samsung’s new building certainly looks worth checking out.

how to share large data files between two offices?

cloud servers

Question by andrew t: how to share large data files between two offices?
I am an architect and work for an architectural firm – obviously. Our company has two offices, a main office and a satellite office (which is where I work) We are separated by about 600 miles.

We often need people in our home office to work on our projects (all of the engineers are there) and often we help them with theirs. So we need to share project files – CAD drawings, photographs, documents etc.. which can be huge and multiple per project.

Currently our Satellite office uses Remote Desktop to remote into the home office’s main file server and put our files there or take the ones we need from them. I moved a folder of just images this morning that was 850MB and it took literally hours just to make that one transfer which was not even close to the whole project… It’s impossible to keep everyone on the same page this way.

We have always had a problem with sharing data due not only to file sizes and slow transfers but say if I’m working on a drawing and someone in the other office is working on the same drawing. We end up overwrite each others work (which has happened many times and it sucks). Or someone forgets to update the project and the other guy spends hours working on the old out dated version of something.

How do other companies in multiple office situations deal with this type of data sharing? I can’t imagine we’re the only ones in the world who have this need.

I do realize that we could move ALL our data to a cloud somewhere. The problem with that is our home office is royally stuck in their ways and won’t even entertain the idea of cloud storage and giving up their precious archaic file server.. How was this accomplished before there even was a cloud? Is there some way to reliably “Sync” our two file servers?

P.S. Our satellite office only has a DSL connection. There is no cable in our building at all (who in this day and age builds an office building with no access to cable is beyond me!)

Thanks for any advice, sorry about the novel.

One possible solution is dropbox. They offer a free and a paid for service depending on how much space you need. Go to dropbox.com for specifics. What it does is create a folder on the computers you install it on. When you move a file to this folder or change a file in the folder, it automatically sync any other computer running dropbox with the same credentials. It also stores a copy on the dropbox.com website which you can log into and download from anywhere. Great program and free or cheap!
