HOUSTON -- Texas Memory Systems, maker of the Worlds Fastest Storage®, today announced the availability of a new groundbreaking one-million inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) solid state disk system. The new RamSan-5000 is the fastest Flash memory-based system in the world to go beyond the lab and into the marketplace. Additionally, the system can scale to deliver several million IOPS using Texas Memory Systems’ new Turbo feature.

Solid state disk systems are used by large enterprise, government, military, and research organizations to accelerate their most critical applications. Faster systems can support more transactions and users with fewer servers and licenses. As such they are more cost effective than adding large hard-disk based systems, server-based RAM, or expensive application tuning. Flash-based SSD systems like the RamSan-5000 offer dramatically lower costs and power consumption than previously available.

“We were installing a 20 terabyte one-million IOPS RamSan-5000 at a customer site while other vendors were announcing lab results,” said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. “We won the business because the system met strict performance requirements and was determined to be the most cost-effective solution available, today or on the horizon.”
