RISE and BiTMICRO Integrate Solid-State Storage Solutions

4/5/2004 - RISE Storage Networks, a French company established in 1997 specializing in network design and Storage Area Networks (SAN) and BiTMICRO® Networks, a pioneer in intelligent ATA / IDE, SCSI, USB, VME, Compact PCI, Firewire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel flash solid-state storage solutions have agreed to cooperate and integrate the intelligent E-Disk® platform of flash memory solid-state storage solutions into RISE's enterprise storage offerings. The agreement was announced during the Semaine Européene des Technologies de l'Information (SETI) 2004 being held from March 30 - April 1, 2004 in Paris, France.

BiTMICRO's family of networked solid-state disks (SSDs) are designed to meet the ever growing demand for speed and low latency required by commercial database and other transaction intensive applications. The E-Disk®SAN comes in low-cost versions for single to four-drive configurations, 2U modular rack mounted enclosures and all the way to 48U cabinets of pure SSD. Performance will range from 9,500 random IOPS and 68 MB/s for a single fibre channel disk; and up to 16.5 TB, 16GB/s sustained transfer rates and 2.5 million random IOPS for the most I/O intensive computing requirements of any enterprise application today.

The E-Disk®SAN flash disk and the complementary E-Disk®SafeCapacity-Hotfile software constitute an open SAN solution for accelerating overall performance of SAN-based systems and applications, with full support for most major operating systems (Windows NT and Windows 2000, NetWare, HP-UX, Suse/RedHat Linux, SUN Solaris, IBM AIX) and fibre channel switches and directors.

E-Disk® StorView management software's simplicity of management (both local and remote), its flexibility and data security are all important considerations for the most demanding enterprise users from the banking, healthcare, telecommunications and entertainment industries.

Maurice KAZES, Managing Director of RISE Storage Networks says, "We are very pleased to have BiTMICRO Networks provide us with high performance and reliability storage tool sets to complement our overall storage virtualization architecture. This announcement now opens up a lot of opportunities for RISE to take advantage of, including customers who run data streaming, I/O intensive and high performance computing applications."

"RISE Storage Networks has an excellent track record on serving the enterprise storage market in France. Their focus on networked storage architectures and excellent professional services team help ensure that the largest corporations in France will count among our pleased customers worldwide." states Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO Networks.
