SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Solid Data Systems, Inc., the leading global provider of solid-state storage systems, introduced today StorageSPIRE, a cost-effective line of managed solid-state disk (SSD) arrays providing up to a Terabyte of high-speed, non-volatile storage that dramatically increases response times and throughput for transaction-intensive applications. The StorageSPIRE SSD array is a direct replacement for high-end RAID arrays or an alternative to in-server memory systems, and can be direct-connected or used as a shared device when deployed on a storage area network (SAN).

StorageSPIRE SSD arrays provide a superior solution to traditional storage architectures consisting of RAID arrays or passels of servers loaded with memory by combining the data persistence of rotating disks with the transaction speed of main memory. In addition, StorageSPIRE SSD arrays use less than half the power of conventional disk or in-server memory architectures, making this an environmentally preferable "green" storage solution.

"Growing application performance requirements have driven IT departments to segment databases over multiple servers in order to maintain acceptable throughput to their end users," said Wade Tuma, CEO of Solid Data Systems, Inc. "However, this approach results in high cost and complexity, and under-utilization of server CPU capacity. StorageSPIRE was developed to reduce storage costs, decrease data center power consumption and simplify performance management."
