Texas Memory Systems’ RamSan-210 has passed the testing process for the “Designed for Windows 2000 Server” logo making it the first and only solid state disk system to do so. The accreditation is given by Microsoft to products exhibiting full compatibility with the operating system. The RamSan-210 completed testing as a “Fibre Channel Disk.”
“Our products have always offered the best performance without resorting to overly complex architecture” says Woody Hutsell, Marketing Director for Texas Memory Systems. “The RamSan-210’s successful test is further proof of the RAM-SAN line’s high levels of interoperability.”
According to Hutsell, the company intends to earn the logo on all their solid state disk products. “The best clients need constant reassurance that vital network components are thoroughly tested to work in their environment. This and other forms of compatibility testing gives them that piece of mind.”
The RamSan210 is available in capacities from 8-32GB. To provide data protection even in the event of a power failure, data is mirrored from the SDRAM (solid state) element of the device to two standard disk drives. Writes to all three devices occur simultaneously. The two disk drives are hot-swappable, as are the two power supplies within the system. Connectivity to the device is provided by up to four fibre channel ports running at 1 or 2 Gbps. All RamSan210 systems occupy 2U of rack space.
Dubbed “The World’s Fastest Storage”, Texas Memory says that the RAM-SAN line of solid state disks outperforms any storage device currently on the market.
