Texas Memory Systems Enters Commercial Storage Market

Houston, Texas—May 10, 2001—Texas Memory Systems, Inc., a computer hardware manufacturer specializing in solid state disk storage for storage networks announced their decision to enter the commercial storage market. TMS was founded in 1978, and has historically focused on delivering high bandwidth and low latency solutions for the military and defense contractors.

“We have been evaluating the commercial market for several years,” said Holly Frost, CEO of Texas Memory Systems. “The convergence of high-speed computers, increasing network bandwidth, and more demanding applications are creating storage bottlenecks that RAID cannot resolve because they depend on hard disk drives for storage. The best solution for these problems is our RAM-SAN solid state disks.”

Of Texas Memory Systems entry into the commercial market, Paul Kaler, Vice President of Technology, at Texas Memory Systems said, “the storage networking market, including Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS), will grow tremendously over the next four years. We believe that solid state disks will be a key part of that growth.”
TMS is actively seeking OEM and reseller relationships to drive our entry into the commercial market place. “We will support a limited direct sales capability, but we plan to aggressively focus our effort on recruiting and supporting business partners,” according to Woody Hutsell, Director of Marketing at Texas Memory Systems.
