The RamSan delivers its massive bandwidth to hosts
via four 2Gb Fibre Channel interface ports. There are two main benefits to
having high bandwidth:
1. Some applications require high bandwidth. Good examples include
video on demand and non-linear editing of HDTV.
2. High bandwidth enables the RamSan-220 to be shared across multiple
hosts without impacting performance.
Competing solid state disks that have less internal bandwidth than
the RamSan-220 cannot support all of the applications that we support
and cannot be shared with as many hosts without compromising performance.
Our nearest competitor claims half of our available bandwidth.
An important note as you compare solid state disk to RAID: our solid
state disk bandwidth numbers can be sustained with random data streams.
RAID systems can only sustain high bandwidth numbers with sequential
