3/1/2005 - Texas Memory Systems, makers of the World’s Fastest Storage®, announced four significant interoperability certifications for its flagship RamSan-325 Fibre Channel solid state disk. The certifications include Microsoft Designed for Windows Server 2003, Sun Solaris Ready, IBM TotalStorage Proven and McData OpenReady. Each of these certifications is awarded as a result of testing with the related platform.
Applications that benefit from fast solid state disks include OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, and data acquisition. Typical RamSan users include corporations in the financial, telecom, broadcasting, and e-commerce sectors as well as government, military, and research organizations.
"To achieve record-holding performance and the highest levels of interoperability, we designed the RamSan’s Fibre Channel interface and software from the ground up," said Rich Holzmann, Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. "Because solid state disks are used strategically to accelerate critical applications, they need to work flawlessly in heterogeneous IT environments. Our active approach to working alongside leading vendors in the storage industry has led to a rock-solid product."
The RamSan-325 can accelerate I/O intensive applications such as databases up to 2500%. It offers 250,000 I/Os per second and an internal bandwidth of 3GB per second that can be shared effectively amongst multiple servers. The performance boost from the RamSan can enable higher transaction loads and support more users without resorting to additional servers, associated licenses and management overhead.
RamSan-325 doubles the capacity of a 3U system to 128GB of DDR RAM. This means that a single LUN can now accommodate larger database files and terabyte size systems can be created with 8, instead of 16, units. The increasing size of databases is driving demand for larger capacity as well as very high-speed performance. Texas Memory Systems sold a number of terabyte and half terabyte solid state systems in 2004.
