Houston, Texas, USA, January 30, 2006 -- Texas Memory Systems, maker of the
World's Fastest Storage®, today introduced its new Fast Access
Storage Tested (FAST) program to help IT managers and database administrators
configure high performance storage networks that can accelerate I/O-intensive
databases, OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical
processing), modeling, content streaming and high volume data acquisition
environments. Select 4-gigabit host bus adapter and switches by ATTO, Brocade,
Emulex and QLogic were tested and certified "FAST" by Texas Memory Systems
under the program. All FAST certified products passed Texas Memory Systems
interoperability tests and demonstrated performance or features critical to
Enterprise software applications support more concurrent users, handle higher
volumes of simultaneous transactions and experience fewer technical problems
when running on high performance solid state storage systems. The fastest
systems available today are based on 4-gigabit solid state disks. Solid state
disks running with 4-gigabit interfaces can deliver data up to 800-megabyte per
second per channel. The fastest Texas Memory Systems RamSan system can
currently sustain close to 3-gigabytes per second across eight ports. Texas
Memory Systems' RamSan 4-gigabit solid state disks are used by stock exchanges,
financial trading firms, e-commerce sites, telecommunications companies and
other fast growing companies.
"Texas Memory Systems introduced the FAST program because IT managers and
database administrators want a complete solution that allows them to boost the
performance of their software," said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President of
Texas Memory Systems. "By pre-testing and certifying interrelated components
for interoperability and performance, IT managers can configure complete
solutions that are better, faster and more reliable without the risks and
delays of a trial and error process."
"Global 2000 corporations with I/O intensive applications such as server
virtualization are deploying Texas Memory Systems RamSan solid state disk,"
said Frank Berry, vice president of corporate marketing, QLogic Corporation.
"The Texas Memory Systems FAST certification of QLogic 4Gb products provides
customers with a high-performance I/O infrastructure that extends end-to-end
from server to storage.
FAST certified 4-gigabit host bus adapters include the ATTO Celerity FC-42XS,
Emulex LP11000 and LP11002 and QLogic QLA2460 and QLA2462. FAST certified
4-gigabit switches include the Brocade Silkworm 4100 Switches and QLogic SANbox
