Share Article

Texas Memory Systems will provide Storage Networking World Fall 2009 attendees with a strategic vision of future solid state disk developments and the opportunity to compare storage technologies in a hands-on lab.

Texas Memory Systems, maker of the World's Fastest Storage®, today announced that it will be a sponsor of Storage Networking World Fall 2009. Woody Hutsell, president of Texas Memory Systems and Solid State Disk (SSD) expert, will present a tutorial that examines how SSD will evolve over the next two years. The company is also spearheading a Hands-on Lab that will provide attendees with the opportunity to experiment with SSD and make first hand comparisons between different SSD offerings and hard disk drives. Storage Networking World will take place in Phoenix, Arizona from October 12th through 15th.

Woody Hutsell will offer an industry veteran's perspective on the evolving expectations users will have for SSD, and how vendors are likely to respond to those requirements. The tutorial is part of the Storage Networking Industry Association's education track and is entitled, "Solid Business, Shifting Vision: What users can realistically expect from SSS in the next 2 years." The tutorial will take place at 3pm on Tuesday, October 12th. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of what features, capabilities, and cost points to expect from SSD offerings so that they can successfully plan for the changes ahead.

Texas Memory Systems will host daily sessions at the Solid State Storage Hands-on Lab. Participants will be able to gain valuable hands-on experience with solid state disk systems. They will also be able to input IOmeter parameters and test the relative performance of traditional hard disk drives against Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) Flash card and Random Access Memory-based SSD. Interest in and deployment of SSD is growing in IT environments of all sizes and across all industries. Chief Information Officers and administrators are required to understand how the technology operates and how to integrate it effectively into their environments. The Hand-on Lab is intended to help deepen understanding and provide valuable experience with SSD.

Solid state storage, like Texas Memory Systems' RamSan systems, allow organizations to manage very high transaction volumes and larger numbers of concurrent users with fewer servers, less power, and without excessive application tuning, thus increasing performance while lowering cost and administration efforts. RamSan SSD is used in the financial, telecom, e-commerce, and online-gaming industries, as well as government, military, and research organizations for online transaction processing, data warehousing, and batch processing.

Solid State Disk experts will also be available to demonstrate RamSan, the World's Fastest Storage, and answer questions at the Texas Memory Systems booth, number 1301, on the exhibition floor. Find more information about Texas Memory Systems online at http://www.texmemsys.com.
