STec Announces Solid-State Storage Appliance For Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012, Delivering Superior Performance, Reliability To Enterprise Systems

NEW ORLEANS, June 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TechEd 2013 – sTec, Inc. (NASDAQ:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state storage solutions, today announced the sTec® s3000 storage appliance. The s3000 combines the performance, reliability and endurance of sTec's industry-leading solid-state drive (SSD) technology with Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 storage clustering, virtualization and management features -- all within a cost-effective hardware configuration.

With up to 96 terabytes (TB) of storage per appliance, the s3000 is a significant addition to sTec's solid-state storage product portfolio of top-performing and most-reliable enterprise SSD drives and caching software. Furthermore, the s3000 demonstrates sTec's commitment to providing an expansive range of tailored solid-state storage solutions, directly to the enterprise or through the company's growing global partner program.

"In providing customized SSD solutions to meet our customers' storage requirements, we discovered a significant opportunity for an sTec-developed appliance that blends the power and performance of sTec SSDs with the capabilities and widespread deployment of Windows Storage Server 2012," said Ali Zadeh, corporate senior vice president and chief marketing officer, and general manager of the Systems and Software Group, sTec.  "The s3000 is an ideal solution for IT managers looking to tailor their data centers to meet the demanding performance needs of their data-intensive applications."

"Windows Storage Server 2012 introduced industry-leading innovations in storage, and sTec is building on these advances," said Brian Hillger, director, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft. "sTec's s3000 solid-state storage appliance takes advantage of Windows Storage Server 2012's range of features to give enterprises worldwide an advanced storage platform."

"The enterprise-storage market is ripe for leveraging advances in SSDs and operating systems that provide powerful solutions to IT professionals' greatest challenges: storage management, clustering and virtualization – all within a reasonable budget," said Jim Bagley, senior analyst, Storage Strategies NOW, a leading industry analyst firm covering the IT industry. "sTec has aligned its solid-state storage expertise with this trend, as the s3000 was developed around Windows Storage Server 2012 for a tight coupling of enterprise-class storage and a standardized software platform."
