Texas Memory Systems has developed a solid state disk system which performs 5 million I/Os per second. It costs $4.4m for 100 terabytes of storage.
The RamSan-6200 is a scaled up system that combines 20 RamSan-620 solid state disks in a single datacentre rack and uses Texas Memory Systems' TeraWatch software to provide unified management and monitoring from a single GUI console.
Initially designed to meet the requirements of a customer with extreme performance needs, the RamSan-6200 serves enterprise applications such as data acquisition, data warehousing, modelling, simulations, rendering, and video editing.
The RamSan-6200 consumes 6 kilowatts an hour.
