SANTA ANA, Calif. and AVARDA, Colo., March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state storage solutions, and Demartek, LLC, a leader in lab validation testing of server, network, storage, and security technologies, today announced evaluation results confirming that STEC's solid-state storage solutions deliver significantly enhanced performance for managing large volumes of data transactions. Conducted by Demartek, the test examined the STEC™ s1120 PCIe Accelerator in a primary storage configuration, as well as in a caching environment in combination with STEC's EnhanceIO™ SSD Cache Software. In both configurations, STEC far exceeded traditional SAN performance.
- For primary storage configurations, using the s1120, it was determined that: -- Database transactions per second were up to 16 times higher than a similarly configured HDD storage environment -- Bandwidth was up to 7.5 times higher than the HDD solution -- Latency was 100 times lower than in an HDD system
- For caching configurations, using the s1120 and EnhanceIO Caching software, it was determined that: -- Database transactions per second were up to 8 times higher than with HDDs
