Texas Memory System’s RamSan-440 reportedly sustains a record 600,000 IOPS and quadruples capacity for RAM-based solid state disks.
SanDisk, Seagate Technology, Western Digital, Samsung, Toshiba and Fujitsu have been making most of the solid-state disk headlines lately. They now have some company from an old, familiar face.
The RamSan-440 is the world's first non-volatile RAM-based SSD to sustain up to 600,000 IOPS (input/outputs per second) and deliver up to 512GB of storage capacity in a 4U rack-mount chassis, the Houston-based company claims.
It's also the first SSD to use RAIDed NAND flash memory modules for data backup, and the first system to incorporate Texas Memory Systems' own patented IO² (Instant-On Input-Output) "secret sauce" technology. The feature improves system availability by making user or application-requested data instantly accessible after the system is powered on, the company said.
