Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAM), a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality computer memory, storage products, software and services, today announced that it will be exhibiting its XcelaSAN® storage optimization appliances at SNW in Booth 207 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA April 4–7. Dataram will be showcasing its XcelaSAN Model 100 with high availability for mission-critical applications. Dataram’s latest addition to its product line includes new and enhanced features that help customers drive up to 30x IOPS, achieve higher storage system utilization and reduce environmental costs within midrange Fibre Channel SANs. With XcelaSAN as part of its "Go Green to Save Green" initiative, the company reinforces its commitment to helping customers reduce the environmental impact of datacenters, attain regulatory compliance and improve return on investment (ROI). The Dataram XcelaSAN storage optimization appliance reduces cost and consumption of both power and cooling and reduces a customer’s carbon footprint. Environmental costs are further diminished because XcelaSAN lessens the need for additional storage arrays or the installation of much more expensive high-end storage. “IT managers face the challenge of reducing ever-growing power usage and expense while ensuring that application performance and end user satisfaction are maintained or even improved,” said Phyllis Reiman, Senior Marketing Manager of Dataram. “Our customers can meet both challenges easily and cost-effectively with the XcelaSAN.” The XcelaSAN Green Initiative fits into Dataram’s overall commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its products. Dataram promotes “green procurement” at every stage of its product lifecycles — from procurement of raw materials to manufacturing and distribution to consumption and final disposal. Dataram is also RoHS compliant and implements the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. XcelaSAN is a proven, cost-effective and highly available solution that dynamically and transparently improves I/O performance in midrange Fibre Channel SANs. XcelaSAN provides investment protection by extending the life of the existing infrastructure and dramatically increases application performance while lowering an organization’s overall cost of computing. The storage optimization appliance leverages Dataram's 44-year history of memory and storage expertise to deliver enterprise-level reliability, availability and scalability—including hot-swappable, redundant power supplies, ECC, chip kill technology, internal mirrored flash drives and mirrored SAN configurations for no single point of failure.
