Ramsan-400 Receives Microsoft Designed for Windows Certification

Texas Memory Systems, makers of the World’s Fastest Storage(R), today announced that after passing the Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) testing for interoperability with Microsoft Server 2003, its RamSan-400 Fibre Channel solid state disk has successfully qualified for the ‘Microsoft Designed for Windows’ Server 2003 badge.

Texas Memory Systems’ RamSan solid state disks can accelerate I/O intensive applications, such as those based on SQL Servers, by up to 2500%. Faster applications can support more simultaneous users and process more concurrent transactions without resorting to additional servers, associated licenses and management overhead thus increasing productivity.

Applications that benefit from the speed of solid state disks include OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, and data acquisition. Typical RamSan users include corporations in the financial, telecom, broadcasting, and e-commerce sectors as well as government, military, and research organizations.

With a 400,000 I/Os per second and an internal bandwidth of 3 gigabytes per second that can be shared effectively amongst multiple servers, no RAID, cache, or other solid state disk is capable of the raw performance offered by the RamSan-400.

“Because solid state disks are used strategically to accelerate critical applications, they need to work flawlessly in heterogeneous IT environments,” said Woody Hutsell, executive Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. “Our proactive approach to working alongside leading IT vendors means that our RamSan product line is second to none in compatibility and performance.”
