The latest SSD offering from Texas Memory Systems tempts users with up to 10TB of storage and claims of one million IOPS.

SSD technology

Texas Memory Systems is attempting to claim the title of "world's fastest storage" maker with its latest Solid State Disk (SSD) product.

The RamSan-630 is a rack-mounted SLC NAND Flash SSD with up to 10TB of storage available.

It claims massive performance improvements, enabling 500,000 IOPS whilst in 3U storage enclosures or reaching an impressive one million when going in a 6U.

It allows shared access from a number of servers, an improvement from HDD counterparts, whilst boasting low power usage of 450 watts and boasts latency of less than 80 microseconds.

There is also room for improvement as networking architecture changes from the current 10 Fibre Channel links enabling bandwidth of 4GBps to new InfiniBand and 8Gb Fibre Channel adapters in the next few months, doubling said bandwidth and improving performance again.

"Flash SSD is one of the most transformative technologies available in the data centre," said George Crump, lead analyst with Storage Switzerland, in a statement.

"Texas Memory Systems has engineered a flash system backplane that enables applications to leverage the full bandwidth in a networked environment without any changes to the application. Enterprise IT can expect to reap the performance and efficiency of flash without any upheaval."

The RamSan-630 is available from today.
