Open Bench Labs Initiates Independent Review of Texas Memory Systems RAM-SAN

Houston, Texas—January 18, 2001—Texas Memory Systems shipped a RAM-SAN to Jack Fegreus of Open Bench Labs for independent review and testing. The RAM-SAN provided to Open Bench Labs includes a 8GB of SDRAM for storage and four Fibre Channel interface ports. Open Bench Labs is in the early stages of developing a SAN for on-going internal testing and agreed to review the RAM-SAN as part of its first tests.

“It is one thing to claim amazing performance numbers, it is another thing to prove it” said Woody Hutsell Marketing Director for Texas Memory Systems “we are determined to prove that our performance is as incredible as we publish and independent testing is a great way to do that.” Texas Memory Systems has an RAM-SAN evaluation program in place to support customers, vendor partners and journalists. The program requires no commitments from the evaluator and has involved numerous vendor partners and customers.

According to Holly Frost CEO of Texas Memory Systems “We are delighted to be testing with Open Bench Labs, Jack Fegreus has a history of producing high quality reviews of storage products.” After the testing is completed the results of the tests will be published in an article in Open Magazine. Open Magazine is expected to publish the article in its April issue.
