SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state drive (SSD) technologies and products, and PogoStorage, the leading open source systems integrator, today announced an alliance whereby Pogo Storage will now feature STEC's highly reliable, high-speed ZeusRAM ® and ZeusIOPS ® SSDs in its StorageDirector Z-Series family of unified storage solutions. The two companies are showcasing the solution August 26 to 29 at VMworld 2012, booth #2113, in San Francisco.
Pogo's flagship StorageDirector Z-Series NAS and SAN products run on the NexentaStor™ ZFS platform, which unlocks enterprise-class storage capabilities such as high availability, unlimited snapshots and deduplication, with Open Storage technologies. Nexenta recently certified an all-STEC SSD-configured system, which delivers up to 5X better performance for such enterprise applications as database indexing and email exchanges, resulting in an 8X reduction in cost per user and a 4X reduction in cost per transaction.
Utilizing STEC's ZeusRAM SSD as the write log and ZeusIOPS SSD as the read-only cache within the StorageDirector Z-Series system alleviates performance bottlenecks. This accelerates read/write capabilities, which is ideal for business-critical applications, such as enterprise e-commerce, databases, online transaction processing (OLTP), cloud infrastructures and virtualization."With all the solid-state drive technologies on the market, our customers and resellers trust us to integrate only the most enterprise-reliable SSDs into our products," said Erik Logan, CEO of Pogo Storage. "As the first Nexenta Premier Partner, we are excited to partner with STEC to integrate their powerful Nexenta-certified STEC ZeusRAM and ZeusIOPS SSDs into our StorageDirector Z-Series systems. These SSDs deliver the best solid-state drive platform to run NexentaStor in terms of I/O performance and I/Os per second (IOPS), which is consistent with the quality and performance our customers expect from Pogo Storage."
