SANTA ANA, Calif. and MERCER ISLAND, Wash., March 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state disk (SSD) solutions, and OS Nexus, a developer of next-generation storage-appliance solutions, today announced that the STEC™ s1120 PCIe Accelerator has been qualified on the OS Nexus storage platform. The qualification provides IT professionals with the assurance they can boost data center and cloud applications efficiently through the combination of the high-performance PCI Express (PCIe)-based s1120 SSD and the cost-effective, easily deployed OS Nexus QuantaStor™ storage system.

The STEC s1120 PCIe Accelerator—available with up to two Terabytes of capacity and in a version with unlimited writes—enables multiple SSDs to be deployed on a single server and features data-protection functions such as PowerSafe™ technology that helps to ensure data is not lost in the event of power failure. The s1120 is optimized for accelerating applications such as data analytics, statistical analysis and modeling, and video imaging, editing and sharing. QuantaStor is a unified storage-appliance platform designed as an easy-to-use, low-cost, scalable alternative to expensive and complex storage systems. The platform enables companies to deploy commodity servers as enterprise-grade storage appliances and provides a range of open-storage capabilities, including traditional block and file protocols, as well as big data databases such as Hadoop, OpenStack SWIFT and scale-out storage with Gluster.

"We were very impressed with the performance numbers from our validation testing of the STEC s1120 PCIe Accelerator," said Steven Umbehocker, chief executive officer, OS Nexus. "The s1120 exceeded our expectations and demonstrates the tremendous enterprise-systems potential of two leading storage solutions—STEC's SSD technology and our QuantaStor software."

"STEC continues to engage with innovative companies, such as OS Nexus, to provide solid-state storage solutions that deliver the performance and data reliability demanded by today's enterprise systems," said Zack Mihalis, vice president of product marketing and management, STEC. "The validated compatibility of the s1120 SSD and QuantaStor software give system integrators and other IT professionals the confidence that their enterprise-storage systems can be developed with the performance, reliability, ease of use, and cost-efficiency STEC and OS Nexus customers expect."
