High bandwidth, low latency enterprise data storage systems
Texas Memory System (TMS) produce enterprise-grade solid state disks (SSD), non-volatile systems that store data on Random Access Memory (RAM) and NAND Flash. RamSan products are a cost effective solution to common enterprise application and database performance problems. Traditional hard disk based systems incur performance penalties because of the high access times of mechanical, rotating hard disk drives. Because SSDs rely on memory chips for data storage, they offer dramatically lower latency that narrows the gap between processor and storage speeds. Non-volatility is achieved through the integration of internal batteries and persistent storage and backup systems.
When enterprises implement a RamSan SSD solutions they see numerous benefits by increasing application performance, making better use of their existing servers, lowering power costs, and improving user/customer experience. SSD prices will continue to fall while capabilities and storage capacities increase.
TMS PCI products are Flash-based storage that connects directly into PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect bus) express slots in the server. RamSam-10, RamSan-20 and RamSan 70 offer the advantage of bringing solid state storage as close as possible to the CPU, minimizing the latency added by disk and RAID controllers, network protocols, switches, and the additional hardware and software involved in both NAS and SAN topologies.
Flash-based SSDs are rapidly becoming major players in enterprise data centers. TMS was one of the first to offer Flash-based storage solutions that were reliable and fast enough for enterprise deployment. Beginning with the RamSan-500, a fusion of RAM and Flash technologies, the Flash product line is rapidly expanding toward larger capacities and lower costs.
TMS RAM SSDs are the World's Fastest Storage®. No other storage products can match the I/Os per second or provide the massive bandwidth a RamSan can provide. Hundreds of locations around the world use TMS products to accelerate databases, SANs, batch processes, and other high performance applications.
