FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Texas Memory Systems Joins the DAFS Collaborative
Houston, Texas—March 20, 2001—Texas Memory Systems,
manufacturers of the World’s Fastest Storage, announced that the company has
joined the DAFS collaborative. DAFS is a new file-access protocol that is being
designed to take advantage of new standard memory-to-memory interconnect
technologies such as VI and InfiniBand in datacenter environments. This protocol
will dramatically enhance the performance of Internet, collaborative,
e-commerce, and database applications through a new generation of
high-performance, low-latency storage networks.
“We are participating in the DAFS Collaborative because we see DAFS as an
excellent way for server to storage data transfers to be accelerated”,
according to Paul Kaler VP of Technology for Texas Memory Systems, “as the
DAFS protocol is adopted it only makes sense for the company that manufactures the World’s Fastest Storage to be a supporter.”
“Combining the advantages of solid state disk and DAFS seems like a natural
direction for Texas Memory Systems”, said Holly Frost the CEO of Texas Memory
Systems. “We are involving our engineers in order to learn as much as we can
about the protocol and add our expertise where it is relevant,” he continued.
Texas Memory Systems involvement in the DAFS collaborative will begin with the
next developer meeting scheduled immediately after the Storage Networking World
conference in Palm Desert, CA.
