Texas Memory Systems Contributes RAM-SAN to Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Technology Center

Houston, TX . - (September 27, 2001) - Texas Memory Systems announced today that it has contributed a RAM-SAN solid state disk for use in the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Technology Center located in Colorado Springs.

The RAM-SAN solid state disk is the "World's Fastest Storage". The RAM-SAN is used to complement existing storage, by providing a cache for frequently accessed files. Typical applications for the RAM-SAN include file caching for databases, streaming video, modeling and data acquisition. The RAM-SAN delivers higher throughput and I/O capability than any other storage device, including other solid state disks. The systems provide from 8GB to 128GB of SDRAM capacity in a single chassis.

"The SNIA Technology Center is delighted that Texas Memory Systems has contributed a RAM-SAN solid state disk for the benefit of companies conducting interoperability testing," said Thomas Conroy, the Director of the Center. "The Texas Memory Systems contribution is integral for accomplishing the SNIA Technology Center's goal of becoming the premier venue for testing and development of heterogeneous storage networking configurations and solutions."

"We believe that every storage network can benefit from a RAM-SAN solid state disk. Our contribution to the SNIA Technology Center is designed to help other companies reach this conclusion through hands-on testing," according to Woody Hutsell, Marketing Director for Texas Memory Systems. "We are proud to be the first solid state disk vendor to have a product available for use in the SNIA Technology Center. We encourage end-users, resellers, integrators and vendor companies to visit the Center and find out first-hand the benefits of a RAM-SAN solid state disk."
