400,000 IOPS RamSan Now the Fastest Storage Solution Certified for Sun Microsystems Servers
Sun Solaris Users to Benefit from Top Performance of Texas Memory Systems’ RamSan-400

Texas Memory Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the World’s Fastest Storage®, today announced that the 400,000 I/O per second RamSan-400 solid state disk (SSD) has successfully completed the Solaris Ready certification process, making it the fastest storage solution certified for Sun servers to date. The Solaris Ready designation is given by Sun only to products that have met stringent testing requirements for system compatibility, interoperability, ease-of-installation, functionality, and network interoperability.

Texas Memory Systems’ RamSan-400, the industry’s first solid state disk with 4-gigabit Fibre Channel interfaces, is currently the only Solaris Ready storage device that can sustain 3-gigabytes/second of random data transfers or 400,000 random I/Os per second. This exceptional performance makes the RamSan-400 ideal for accelerating I/O-intensive databases, OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, content streaming and high volume data acquisition environments and finds large businesses, government, telecommunications and entertainment customers among its users.

Solid state storage systems are typically deployed alongside traditional storage devices to allow IT managers and database administrators to increase the number of concurrent users and simultaneous transactions without resorting to additional servers, associated licenses and management overhead.

“Sun customers have relied upon the Solaris Ready certified RamSan SSDs for many years and we are delighted to add the RamSan-400 to the lineup” said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. “The RamSan-400 is the ideal complement to high performance Solaris servers.”
