Texas Memory Systems and NetApp Partner to Boost Storage Performance with Solid-State Disk

Enterprises can achieve greater performance, flexibility, and return on their storage investment thanks to the certified interop

Texas Memory Systems, maker of the World's Fastest Storage, announced that it has partnered with NetApp to certify interoperability between its RamSan-500 solid-state disk and the V-Series open storage controller.

The RamSan-500 is the highest performance cached Flash Solid State Disk (SSD) system on the market. The combination of the RamSan-500 and V-Series enables enterprises to greatly improve the return on investment (ROI) of their storage infrastructure, with sub-millisecond performance, simplified data management, and better utilization of their resources. “IT departments are under unprecedented pressure to boost performance while leveraging their existing storage architecture,” said Woody Hutsell, executive vice president at Texas Memory Systems. “Adding the RamSan-500 and the V-Series makes perfect sense at this time, because together they can accelerate applications, reduce operating costs, and extend the useful life of legacy storage by integrating seamlessly into existing SAN and NAS deployments.”

The RamSan-500 delivers 100,000 I/Os per second (IOPS) and two gigabytes per second of sustained random read or write bandwidth while consuming only 300 watts of power. This roughly equates to the performance of a comparable hard disk–based RAID system with hundreds of disks. Additionally, the RamSan uses significantly less power and a fraction of the rack space. The V-Series open storage controller and Data ONTAP® software enable enterprises to consolidate and virtualize all of their data in order to protect their storage investment and reduce costs through simplified, effective data management. Administrators can easily partition networks and storage, including the tier-0 RamSan-500 SSD.

The RamSan-500 can be utilized as a large, fast networked cache, or otherwise partitioned to maximize storage efficiency. V-Series thin provisioning and end-to-end deduplication capabilities can further reduce costs.

"Together, NetApp and Texas Memory Systems are offering customers the best combination of performance, data management, and storage efficiency features available in the storage industry today,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at NetApp. “Customers with the most demanding performance requirements can rely on Texas Memory Systems and NetApp to meet their needs and stand squarely behind them with certified interoperability and comprehensive postsales support." NetApp and Texas Memory Systems have worked closely together over the past year to create a joint solution that meets the needs of customers in terms of functionality, value, and robust interoperability. Both parties have cooperated extensively in the areas of engineering, testing, certifications, and support. Mutual customers provided invaluable input and field testing with proof-of-concept deployments.

The solution is available immediately. More information about the RamSan-500 is available online at http://www.ramsan.com/products/ramsan-500.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
