Stocks in this article: STEC

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state drive (SSD) solutions, today introduced a pair of two-Terabyte (2TB) Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) and Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) SSD drives – each with select versions supporting unlimited writes – becoming the first supplier to offer 2TB SSDs with both interfaces. Additionally, the company has released a significant update to its EnhanceIO™ SSD Cache Software. The new STEC 2TB s840 SAS SSD and 2TB s1120 PCIe Accelerator SSD, along with the updated EnhanceIO software, deliver on STEC's mission of providing innovative solid-state storage solutions that solve many of the performance and optimization challenges in the enterprise storage market.

As STEC continues to align with the needs of enterprise customers, the company has chosen to focus more acutely on a specific range of SSD solutions. These advancements in SAS- and PCIe-based SSDs are key to this alignment, as these two interfaces represent the largest segments of the enterprise-storage market opportunity.  The increased capacity, coupled with an array of proprietary STEC features, make the 2TB s840 and s1120 SSDs a clearly differentiated offering.  The company has built high reliability, significant performance improvements and enhanced data protection into each drive, while utilizing unique, STEC-developed ASIC designs that provide low power and unmatched longevity.  In addition, STEC's EnhanceIO software substantially improves the performance, manageability and usability of all drives – the software is drive-agnostic -- while optimizing virtualization applications across Windows and Linux environments.

"Our storage system requires flexibility to meet the demanding workloads and provide high data throughput across a variety of applications," said Daniel Iniguez, IT manager, NYX Cosmetics. "We required a storage solution that could not only meet our hardware demands, but that also combined several SSD formats with caching software that improved performance and manageability.  STEC's SSD drives have exceeded our expectations and, working in tandem with EnhanceIO, address high storage loads and caching without fail. In an environment that demands quick execution and measurable productivity, we have seen clear results."
