Government Micro Resources, (GMR), Wins SEWPIII Contract Using Texas Memory Systems RAM-SAN

Houston, Texas - August 16, 2001 - Government Micro Resources, (GMR) has been awarded the Storage portion of NASA's Scientific / Engineering Workstation Procurement III, (SEWPIII) contract.  In addressing the demanding needs of file caching, NASA required each participating vendor to offer a Solid State Disk solution. 

After extensive analysis, GMR selected Texas Memory Systems and its RAM-SAN product line to meet the requirements for solid state disk submissions.  “GMR selected Texas Memory Systems because of its incredible speeds and low cost per GB, compared to other slower and more expensive products,” said Bob Keigley, GMR’s Vice President of Marketing. “The RAM-SAN line of products will allow our Federal customers an opportunity to increase the speed of their Storage Area Networks, especially where databases and mail servers are found.”

The RAM-SAN product line includes the RamSan-520 and the RamSan-210.  The RamSan-520, the “World’s Fastest Storage”, provides up to 64GB of SDRAM storage, 3,000 MB/second of bandwidth and 750,000 random I/O’s per second.  In addition to being the technology leader for solid state disks, Texas Memory Systems offers great value by pricing their solid state disks for around $3,750 per GB.

 “We view the RAM-SAN product as a key ingredient to the logical front end in the storage hierarchy for the majority of our new Storage Area Network installations”, says Steve Thomason, Business Development Manager of Enterprise Storage at GMR. “The combination of price and performance show one of the greatest values that we can offer our customers.”
