Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Texas Memory Systems, maker of the World's Fastest Storage®, today announced that it will be a sponsor of the EVE Online Fanfest 2009. EVE Online fans from distant galaxies twenty thousand years in the future will gather in Reykjavik, Iceland, from October first through third to celebrate their shared passion for the largest, most popular Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) ever created. At the event Texas Memory Systems will describe how its RamSan line of Solid State Disk (SSD) is used by CCP Games to enable the persistent universe of EVE with up to 43,000 simultaneous players.
Gamers from all over planet Earth aspire to experience the intensity and real-time responses that depend on the extreme storage performance that only SSD can deliver. Adding Flash may improve the average home computer game; however, true aficionados demand instant response in a visually rich, interactive environment without limits or compromise. EVE Online delivers the richest, most engaging gaming environment available, using RamSan SSD from Texas Memory Systems. Over 300,000 subscribers shape the Universe of EVE, and all can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience. Almost 43,000 users have been online simultaneously in this interactive future galaxy and, thanks to the technical ingenuity of CCP Games and the power of the RamSan storage, satisfaction continues to grow.
CCP Games is the gaming industry-leading pioneer of the single-server persistent universe architecture and the developer of EVE Online, the critically-acclaimed, science fiction-based massively multiplayer online game. By combining cutting-edge technology and artistic excellence, CCP delivers EVE Online. Set tens of thousands of years in the future, EVE Online is a breathtaking journey to the stars, to an immersive experience filled with adventure, riches, danger and glory. EVE boasts the largest, richest science fiction MMO universe in gaming history, featuring a vast player-run economy and virtual professions ranging from commodities trader to mercenary, industrial entrepreneur to pirate, engineer to battle fleet commander, and much more.
CCP Games will welcome EVE Online fans to its hometown of Reykjavik for Fanfest 2009 from October 1st through 3rd, 2009. Except for sanctioned tournament events, weapons and rivalries will be put aside as fans meet and have non-stop fun and get a glimpse of how the rich Universe of EVE is maintained. The beauty of Iceland, the active social scene in Reykjavik, and favorable exchange rate of the Krona are sure to make fans happy too.
As EVE Online has continued to grow in popularity, so too have the demands on the computer systems and storage that keep the Universe vibrant and growing. Fans have shown a strong interest in the technology behind EVE, especially the RamSan storage. Nathalie Bickley of Texas Memory Systems will provide fans with an in-depth look at the RamSan systems that continue to set the standard for the World's Fastest Storage. She will also be blogging and tweeting from Fanfest 2009.
