Texas Memory Systems, maker of the World's Fastest Storage, today introduced its new Fast Access Storage Tested (FAST) program to help IT managers and database administrators configure high performance storage networks that can accelerate I/O-intensive databases, OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, content streaming and high volume data acquisition environments. Select 4-gigabit host bus adapter and switches by ATTO, Brocade, Emulex and QLogic were tested and certified "FAST" by Texas Memory Systems under the program. All FAST certified products passed Texas Memory Systems interoperability tests and demonstrated performance or features critical to Texas Memory Systems' solid state disk customers.

Enterprise software applications support more concurrent users, handle higher volumes of simultaneous transactions and experience fewer technical problems when running on high performance solid state storage systems. The fastest systems available today are based on 4-gigabit solid state disks. Solid state disks running with 4-gigabit interfaces can deliver data up to 800-megabyte per second per channel. The fastest Texas Memory Systems RamSan system can currently sustain close to 3-gigabytes per second across eight ports. Texas Memory Systems' RamSan 4-gigabit solid state disks are used by stock exchanges, financial trading firms, e-commerce sites, telecommunications companies and other fast growing companies.

"Texas Memory Systems introduced the FAST program because IT managers and database administrators want a complete solution that allows them to boost the performance of their software," said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President of Texas Memory Systems. "By pre-testing and certifying interrelated components for interoperability and performance, IT managers can configure complete solutions that are better, faster and more reliable without the risks and delays of a trial and error process."
