Texas Memory Systems, Inc., manufacturer of its World's Fastest Storage product, announced availability of a new solid state disk model, the RamSan-325. The 250,000 I/Os per second RamSan-325 is available in capacities of 128 gigabytes, 96 gigabytes, 64 gigabytes and 32 gigabytes. The RamSan-325 addresses growing requirements for higher capacity solid state disk systems and extends Texas Memory Systems' scalability and density advantages over competing solutions.

The RamSan-325 can accelerate I/O intensive applications such as databases up to 2,500 percent by delivering random data at sustained rates exceeding 1.5 gigabytes per second. Applications that benefit include OLTP, OLAP, 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.

The higher capacity RamSan-325 solid state systems allow organizations with large database files to store the entire file on a single LUN, rather than splitting the data across several systems. The higher storage density of the RamSan-325 also allows a terabyte system to be built with only eight units, rather than 16 units. This means high capacity systems are more space efficient, easier to manage, and affordable to own. By comparison, the RamSan-325 has more than three times the storage density of the closest competing solid state disk.

Its high availability architecture includes redundant and hot swappable power supplies, redundant batteries to provide power in the event external power is lost, and a four disk RAID with hot swappable backup hard disk drives that stores data that is flushed from memory. Texas Memory Systems' Active Backup feature allows users to simultaneously benefit from the solid state drive's superior performance and the hard disk drives' persistence by constantly backing up memory to the internal RAID without affecting application performance.
