proud that our NAS-250 has been recognized for its innovation and
contribution to the industry,” said Holly Frost, CEO of Texas
Memory Systems. “The
NAS-250 is the World’s first solid state disk to offer Gigabit
Ethernet connectivity and NAS features.”
NAS-250 allows system administrators to implement a two-level
storage hierarchy. Hard
disk based NAS units will provide the capacity needed for regularly
accessed files and the NAS-250 will provide the fast access storage
needed for the frequently accessed files.
The NAS-250 will deliver 4x to 10x better access times than
typical NAS devices. The system offers minimum data access times and maximum data
availability for mission-critical environments. The NAS-250 incorporates many high availability components in
its 2U (3.5”) rack-mounted chassis.
It has redundant and hot swappable power supplies, backup
disk drives, and fans. Also,
redundant batteries provide 1 hour of backup power.
The NAS-250 will scale from 8GB to 32GB.
For installations requiring additional capacity, multiple
units can be added to the network.
Each NAS-250 can provide the bandwidth for two Gigabit
Ethernet ports and will resolve most storage bottlenecks with
increased storage throughput.
