STEC reduces IT costs and complexity for customers with HP Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA) Platform
SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec. 8 -- STEC, Inc. today announced that its high capacity enterprise-class ZeusIOPS Solid State Drives (SSDs) have been qualified for integration into the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array platform. STEC's ZeusIOPS drives offer an optimized storage capacity solution that provides improved performance and faster response times, increasing the advantages of storage virtualization.
The incorporation of STEC's ZeusIOPS 200GB and 400GB Fibre Channel (FC) SSDs into the HP Enterprise Virtual Array storage systems is supported by HP management software suite including HP StorageWorks Command View EVA and HP StorageWorks Business Copy EVA Software. The software coupled with STEC's SSDs reduces the complexity of virtual array storage solutions and increases the overall performance capabilities for environments that require low response times and high random IO transactions, such as OLTP and Database applications.
The use of SSDs results in improved response time performance of 40 percent in INDEX applications, and also exhibits an increase in throughput and decrease in latency in SQL Server environments.
"We have developed an optimized solution for customers like HP to enable them to realize the potential of virtualized storage," said Manouch Moshayedi, chairman and chief executive officer of STEC. "We are continuously leveraging our extensive SSD expertise to support and innovate with our partners in delivering an expanding array of industry-leading enterprise solid state storage solutions."
"Clients require easy-to-manage storage solutions that enhance operations and drive productivity," said Tom Joyce, vice president, marketing, StorageWorks, HP. "The HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array with STEC SSD capabilities delivers high performance, high capacity and ease-of-use to maximize storage utilization in virtual environments."
The ZeusIOPS SSD product family offers a comprehensive array of options for enterprise system architects, including a wide range of interface options, from Fibre Channel to SAS, and a broad range of capacity options, spanning from 73GB to 800GB. Fundamental to the ZeusIOPS product family is the proprietary STEC SSD architecture, which enables STEC to provide an enterprise-optimized storage device with an unprecedented combination of performance and energy efficiency.
STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC) is a leading global provider of solid-state drive technologies and solutions tailored to meet the high-performance, high-reliability needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
