Demartek Publishes Texas Memory Systems High-Performance Evaluation

ARVADA, CO--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - Demartek announces its evaluation of the Texas Memory Systems high performance Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) reference architecture using 16 Gbps Fibre Channel (16GFC) and solid state storage technology. This architecture uses solid state storage technology from Texas Memory Systems and 16 Gbps Fibre Channel technologies from Brocade Communications.

"We observed sustained bandwidth of more than 7200 MB/sec with a three server Oracle RAC configuration using five host ports of 16 Gbps Fibre Channel connected to a high-performance, three rack unit (3U) SSD storage solution from Texas Memory Systems," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "In reviewing benchmark results from the Storage Performance Council, this same level of performance requires at least 256 15,000 RPM hard disk drives."

The full report is available at on the Demartek website. This report is part of the growing series of reports in the Demartek SSD Zone ( on the Demartek website.
