SAN JOSE, Calif.-Sept. 20, 2004-Maranti, a leading provider of intelligent storage infrastructure solutions, announced today that its CoreSTOR™ network storage controller has been certified as interoperable with the Texas Memory Systems' RamSan Solid-State Disk System. During the product testing, the Maranti CoreSTOR platform also achieved over 200,000 I/Os per second (IOPS) on a single 2Gbps Fibre Channel port, raising the bar for industry performance benchmarks. .

"Through the testing that we performed to qualify the RamSan solid-state disk system, we were really able to fully exercise our intelligent storage processing data path," said Rick Walsworth, vice president of marketing, Maranti. " The ability to virtualize disk while exceeding 200,000 IOPS on every port, provides scalability to 1.6 million IOPS on the CoreSTOR 2000 and over 12.8 million IOPS on a fully loaded CoreSTOR 3000; results which clearly raise the bar, drawing a line in the sand in terms intelligence with raw storage processing power."

The CoreSTOR network storage controller allows customers to manage and replicate heterogeneous storage resources with zero application downtime, reducing the storage total cost of ownership (TCO) while increasing system availability. The industry's first enterprise-class network storage controller, Maranti's CoreSTOR enables enterprises to deploy a highly scalable, highly available storage infrastructure.

"Texas Memory Systems has been working with Maranti at several customer sites providing unmatched performance with CoreSTOR and RamSan solid-state disks." said Woody Hutsell, executive vice president, Texas Memory Systems. "Maranti qualification of RamSan and these performance tests validate what our customers and our own SPC benchmarks have illustrated; this is the Worlds Fastest Storage® and the combined Maranti/TMS solution delivers best-in-class performance, availability and scalability for our mutual customers."

"At The Clipper Group, we hear the same thing again and again. Enterprise companies need solutions that can scale faster, are highly available, and can deliver high performance - where needed ? across the storage network," said Mike Kahn, Managing Director of this Wellesley, Mass.-based technology acquisition consulting firm. "Since enterprises continue to increase their storage capacity each year, they need to ensure that they can effectively manage their existing assets and integrate their new storage acquisitions into their infrastructure. Storage intelligence continues to play a critical role in helping IT managers meet burgeoning and diverse storage delivery requirements."
