STEC PCI Accelerators Enable 1 Million IOPS In Supermicro SuperServers

Stocks in this article: STEC

SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state drive (SSD) technologies and products, and Supermicro (Nasdaq:SMCI), a worldwide leader in high-performance and high-efficiency server technology and green computing, today announced that STEC s1120 PCIe Accelerators have enabled one-million IOs per second (IOPS) in Supermicro® SuperServer® systems. This achievement, pairing the STEC s1120 PCIe Accelerator SSD with Supermicro's SuperServer SYS-6047R-TXRF, highlights how PCI Express (PCIe) SSD technology can empower next-generation systems with high-performance I/O, faster response times and greater reliability for enterprise-class applications.

"Because our s1120 delivers enterprise-class SSD features, it's ideal for storing business-critical data on high-performance servers such as the SuperServer SYS-6047R-TXRF , which was designed for a wide range of data center and cloud computing environments," said Jim Ting, STEC vice president of product marketing. "STEC and Supermicro's collaboration in reaching this one-million IOPS milestone reflects both companies' ongoing commitment to applying solid-state storage to create a new class of powerful enterprise servers."

"Supermicro designs server and storage solutions that address the increasing demands of data center, cloud computing and enterprise IT environments," said Wally Liaw, vice president, sales international at Supermicro. "The one-million IOPS result set by our SuperServer SYS-6047R-TXRF, combined with STEC's s1120 SSD, demonstrates Supermicro's ability to deliver advanced computing solutions with the highest performance and reliability. We are excited to work with STEC on innovative, next-generation SSD solutions, providing our customers with the greatest leading-edge advantages."

STEC PCIe accelerators, the result of four generations of SSD design expertise, are architected to take full advantage of PCIe speeds to deliver low-latency application data access. The s1120's ASIC-based, cut-through architecture delivers extremely low-latency data access by eliminating storage protocols such as SAS and SATA. They require minimal power consumption, therefore delivering very low Watt/IO, while packing exceptionally high storage density into the smallest form factors, which allows for a greater number of flash devices to be installed in industry-standard servers. The s1120 also comes with built-in STEC proprietary CellCare™ Technology to provide industry-best endurance/device lifetime that enables the use of multi-level cell (MLC) media even in write-intensive applications. Additionally, the use of STEC's PowerSafe™ Technology in the s1120 protects against unscheduled power outages, while its five-year warranty ensures that the s1120 can be confidently deployed.
