TMS Offers 1TB Memory Cache
Compatible with both Brocade and McData switches, the new hardware has up to 128 Fibre Channel ports for $1.6M.Texas Memory Systems Inc. Thursday announced a 1TB version of its memory cache for high-performance computing uses. The new hardware, Tera-RamSan, has up to 128 Fibre Channel ports for $1.6 million, officials said. "Where you have 150, 250 gigabytes, thats where you start talking about the sweet range. Its meant to be a scalable product that people can put in and they know they can grow," said Paul Kaler, vice president of technology, in Houston.
Tera-RamSan, available now, is compatible with Brocade Communications Systems Inc.s and McData Corp.s storage switches, he said. Its built from 32 of TMS RamSan 220 modules, which use Synchronous DRAM. An internal switch eliminates the need for separate server-side host-bus adapters for each module, he explained.
