Texas Memory Systems Joins as Premier Member of Hewlett Packard's Computer Solutions Provider Program

Houston, Texas—March 26, 2001—Texas Memory Systems announced today that it has formalized its relationship with Hewlett Packard by joining as a Premier member of the HP Computing Solution Provider Program (CSPP). The CSPP program is designed to provide business partners with “sophisticated technical, marketing, and sales assistance so that companies can develop, demonstrate, and deploy products on Hewlett Packard systems.”

“For Texas Memory Systems joining the HP CSPP was a natural extension of our previous relationship with HP and its customers”, according to Woody Hutsell Marketing Director for Texas Memory Systems, “a significant percentage of our sales opportunities are with customers using Hewlett Packard servers and operating systems.” Texas Memory Systems sells the RAM-SAN line of solid state disks. The RAM-SAN’s connect via Fibre Channel interfaces to servers and storage networks. These systems are compatible with the HP-UX operating system versions that support Fibre Channel interfaces.

“One of the biggest advantages of being a Premier member of the CSPP is our ability to test our hardware in Hewlett Packard’s labs”, said Paul Kaler VP of Technology for Texas Memory Systems, “demonstrating interoperability between our Fibre Channel solid state disks and the HP server operating systems provides our customers additional confidence as they look for solutions.” The CSPP program provides lab time for partner companies to demonstrate interoperability on HP platforms.

Texas Memory Systems will be exhibiting at HP World Expo, August 22-24, 2001 in Booth #967.
