TMS Claims 'World's Fastest Storage'

Arthur Cole

Texas Memory Systems (TMS) is claiming the "World's Fastest Storage" title for itself in the wake of new testing of its RamSan-400 solid state drive (SSD) under Storage Performance Council (SPC) benchmarks.

 

The company said it achieved 291,208.58 IOPS under the SPC-1 specification, with an average response time of .86 milliseconds. On top of that, the company is also claiming an SPC-1 price/performance record of $0.67 per IOPS. The tests used off-the-shelf servers equipped with 4 GB of memory tied to QLogic QLE2462 HBAs and SANbox 5600 fabric switches.

 

Ultimately, faster-performing SSD technology could reduce the need to overprovision hard disk capacity in the perpetual quest for greater SAN performance. Particularly in high data-load environments like warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP), SSDs can more easily handle simultaneous data requests from multiple users.
