ISELIN, N.J. -- Violin Memory, Inc., a supplier of scalable memory solutions,

today announces the Violin 1010 Memory Appliance, the industrys highest density memory

system. Designed for high-performance computing and data center applications, the Violin 1010

initially supports 504 Gigabyte (GB) of DRAM in a 2U (3.5″) high chassis and will scale to greater

than 1TByte. With six times more memory density than existing systems, the Violin 1010 bringssolid state memory into the realm of affordability for data centers.

The Violin 1010 Memory Appliance is the industry’s fastest I/O device, with a capability of over 3

Million random IOPS on a single interface and only 3 microsecond latency. The cost per IOPS

(random I/O per second) of a 120 GB system is less than 2 cents, a 98% savings when compared

to disk arrays.

“Violin's memory appliance delivers Terabyte scalability, high IOPS, low latency and low power

consumption,” said Donpaul Stephens, Founder and President of Violin Memory, Inc.

“Applications such as data mining, scientific simulations, 3D modeling, image analysis,

visualization and web content delivery can benefit significantly.”

"The performance benefits of large scale memory systems in Big Science computinginfrastructure could be very significant. SLAC is actively researching this area and is encouraged

by Violin's approach to this opportunity." said Dr Randy Melen, head of Scientific Computing at

Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC).
