Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
Texas Memory Systems, maker of the World's Fastest Storage®, congratulates COCC's Infrastructure Officer, Chad Burney, on being named one of the industry's top 25 CTOs (Chief Technical Officers) by InfoWorld, the leading source of information on emerging enterprise technologies.
The CTO 25 award honors senior information technology executives who have demonstrated excellence and leadership within their companies as well as the greater IT community. Mr. Burney was honored for the performance and cost improvements resulting from replacing COCC's conventional hard disk storage with RamSan Flash Solid State Disks (SSD) from Texas Memory Systems.
COCC has earned a reputation for transforming its clients into financial services powerhouses with innovative technology and support. Facing strong client growth based on the popularity of COCC's leading edge systems, Mr. Burney selected RamSan-500 and RamSan-620 Solid State Disks from Texas Memory Systems for the company's production data center. The SSD installation immediately improved data center performance by 85%, reduced power consumption by 80%, and reduced physical footprint in the data center by 75%. The RamSan units paid for themselves in just three months.
"We knew that solid state disks could transform our growing data center," commented Mr. Burney. "We also knew the importance of finding the right SSD partner. Our rapid growth is the result of superior performance, and we found that Texas Memory Systems had the same commitment to excellence as COCC. The resulting performance improvements have enabled us to deliver leading edge technology without purchasing additional processors or software licenses. Our SSD implementation is an unqualified success."
"We are delighted to see Chad and COCC honored for their decision to embrace Solid State Disk," said Levi Norman, Director of Marketing and OEM at Texas Memory Systems. "Chad has the vision of storage as a key enabler of growth and efficiency for his company and the banking community. It's no wonder that COCC has more than doubled in size in the past six years."
