RamSan-320 Certified Solaris Ready

HOUSTON, TEXAS - February 12, 2004 - Texas Memory Systems, Inc. announced that the RamSan-320 solid state disk has completed Sun Microsystems' Solaris Ready certification.

Sun provides this designation to products that have met stringent testing requirements for system compatibility, interoperability, ease-of-installation, functionality, and network interoperability. Users with demanding, Solaris-based applications, or high user loads, such as databases, OLTP, and OLAP, can increase their server and storage efficiency with RamSan-320 storage.

"We are delighted to extend interoperability by completing Solaris Ready certification," said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. "RamSan-320 is the ideal complement to Solaris servers and demanding applications, such as Oracle database acceleration."

RamSan solid state disk is designed to be interoperable in heterogeneous environments. It is widely deployed across all major platforms and operating systems. The RamSan-320 is the fastest solid state disk on the market. For frequently accessed data and performance-intensive applications, transaction and storage response times are critical. The RamSan has proven highly effective in overcoming these I/O bottlenecks. The RamSan-320 offers 250,000 IOPS and internal bandwidth of 3GB that can be shared effectively amongst multiple servers. The performance boost from the RamSan can enable higher transaction loads and support more users without resorting to additional servers, associated licenses and management overhead. ...Texas Memory Systems profile


ActionFront Recovers Lost Data from a Failed iPod

Atlanta, GA - February 12, 2004 - ActionFront Data Recovery Labs today announced that they had recovered data from a failed iPod.

Like most MP3 players, the iPod can double as a data backup device and this iPod was submitted to ActionFront to retrieve inaccessible application data.

John "magic fingers" Yost, a senior ActionFront recovery specialist states "These 1.8 inch drives use a new embedded ATA interface, which appears similar to the PC-card type interface but is entirely different. A special adaptor and special screw drivers were sourced overseas in order to work on this drive".

ActionFront is the only company capable of recovering data from IBM's 1 inch MicroDrive, which also requires a special tool set.

Experience gained working on the MicroDrive speeded up the research on the iPod drive. ActionFront's data-recovery-media-success-list ranges from the tiniest hard drives holding personal photos to the largest files servers and tape libraries containing business-critical enterprise data. ...ActionFront Data Recovery profile

AleraTech's New Photo Memory Card to DVD Copier

LAS VEGAS - February 11, 2004 - Alera Technologies introduced today at PMA 2004 the DVD/CD Digital Photo Copy Station, the world's first Memory card to DVD/CD copier.

Both the resolution of digital cameras and the capacity of digital photo memory cards are increasing at an astonishing rate making this development particularly important. Now professional photographers, photo enthusiasts, and commercial photo labs, all can have the ability to safely store up to 4.7GB of valuable digital photos on one convenient removable disc. Photos stored on optical storage media are recognized as being more secure and far less subject to damage than those stored on a hard disk drive.

The DVD/CD Digital Photo Copy Station incorporates a high speed DVD/CD Recorder that records DVD at 8x and CD at 40x and a built in card reader that supports CF Type I and II, SD, MMC, SM, MS, and MS Pro Digital Memory Card formats to read images directly for quick copying. While it requires no computer to copy Memory Cards to DVD or CD, this Digital Photo Copy Station's DVD/CD recorder can be attached to a computer via USB 2.0 for creating and managing still images, video, audio, and data. The ESP of the new Copy Station is $599. ...Alera Technologies profile

Kashya Launches Worldwide Channel Program

SAN JOSE, Calif - February 9, 2004 - Kashya announced today the creation of its K-Partner channel program.

The program offers end users an extensive network of solution providers who have the expertise, resources and products to deliver complete mid-range to enterprise data protection solutions. At the core of these solutions is Kashya's KBX4000 replication appliance, which offers fast, reliable and secure bi-directional data replication over IP, with no distance limitations. Kashya's channel program enables new and exciting market opportunities for leading reseller partners to provide a unique technology that delivers full function enterprise-class data protection at a fraction of the cost of existing products. Three new members have joined the Kashya K-Partner program: Computacenter, SANZ, and RedBridge Solutions.

"Over the last few years disaster recovery has become more than a topic of conversation; however, our customers have remained reluctant to spend the money for comprehensive DR solutions," said Mike Chapman, Vice President of Sales at RedBridge Solutions, Inc. "The reason has been simple - our choices for replication have not been ideal. Host based, in-band, application and sub-system replication still have the same limitations and price tags we have been trying to overcome for years. For the first time, Kashya has announced technology that satisfies both price and functionality deficits we have not been able to overcome. This product truly is what this industry has been demanding for years." ...Kashya profile

Northern Storage Suite Integrates Chargeback Module

TAMPA, FL – February 9, 2004 – Northern today announces that its new Northern Storage Chargeback module is now shipping.

A key component of the Northern Storage Suite, Northern Storage Chargeback provides a complete perspective on costs and usage trends. The application assigns a price to increments of storage, making users (departments, individuals, etc) accountable for the space they consume. Northern Storage Chargeback facilitates internal and external billing - enabling organizations to 'charge back' the cost of storage to end-users. This approach exacts a price on users who inefficiently manage their allotted space, and provides powerful incentive for economical and intelligent use of available resources. Pricing for Northern Storage Chargeback starts at US $1,095; volume discounts are available.

Thomas Vernersson, Northern President, said, "Most users view storage as an endlessly available free commodity. As any IT administrator knows, it is hardly that. But the perception is perpetuated because so few organizations provide users with incentives to conserve space, resulting in an unchecked expansion of data. This inevitably places great strain on IT staff, IT budgets and overall productivity. Northern Storage Chargeback puts ownership and responsibility back in the hands of the user population, and provides every incentive for economical self- management of storage resources." ...Northern profile


HP Lowers Bar for Pay-per-use Storage
