STec(R) S840 SSDs Certified For Windows Server 2012

SANTA ANA, Calif., April 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- sTec, Inc. (NASDAQ: STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state storage solutions, today announced that its high-performance s840 Series Enterprise SAS SSDs have been certified for Windows Server 2012, which includes use with Windows Server 2012 Cluster in a Box systems. The significant performance advantages of the sTec® enterprise-class s840 solid-state drives (SSDs) complement Windows Server 2012's "cluster in a box" and continuous-availability initiatives.

"SSD technology is rapidly emerging as a significant, viable storage element in a new generation of servers running on the ubiquitous Windows Server platform," said Swapna Yasarapu, director of SSD technical marketing at sTec. "Microsoft's decision to highlight support for this storage technology in Windows Server 2012 reflects how SSD technology has become a mainstream storage solution that delivers unprecedented performance for servers in data centers, cloud computing and other high-performance enterprise environments."

"Windows Server 2012 enables a new generation of systems that deliver high availability and performance to a broad market," said Brian Hillger, director, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft. "SSDs are a key technology that can help unleash the full performance capabilities of these new systems. Our work with sTec is a significant step towards giving customers the benefits of SSDs in high-availability systems and helping customers utilize the full potential of Windows Server 2012."

sTec's s840 Series Enterprise SSDs are designed to enable storage systems to realize outstanding, sustainable input/output per second (IOPS), and relieve the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional rotating media disk drives. A single s840 drive can replace multiple hard disk drives (HDDs), thus easing the rack-space demands and performance penalties exacted by rotating media.

Windows Server powers many of the world's largest datacenters, enables small businesses worldwide and delivers value-added benefits to organizations in between. In addition to supporting SSD storage, Windows Server 2012 offers a range of new features and enhancements, including those for virtualization, networking, user experience, cloud computing and automation.
