Santa Ana, CA — Procom Technology, Inc. announced that after an extensive evaluation of available products, Simple Technology has chosen Procom’s NetFORCE 1500 to expand its storage capabilities, achieve upgrade objectives, and supply solutions in a number of key areas.
Simple Technology is a leading provider of standard and custom memory solutions. Its product design requires a tremendous amount of storage space to accommodate thousands of digitized images and complex test files. Simple Technology needed a fault-tolerant storage system that provided quick access to all design data. Finally, a highly reliable system was required to meet increasingly shortened production deadlines as time-to-market and time-to-volume issues became more critical in the adoption and success of its customers’ products.
Procom, which pioneered Network Attached Storage (NAS), distinguished itself by creating the type of cross-connectivity, high-availability network data servers that Simple Technology needed.
“The NetFORCE 1500 increases the productivity of our design engineers and significantly decreases storage costs. With it we can aggregate design data and graphics from multiple disparate sources and provide our engineers with immediate data access. NetFORCE has the best performance-to-cost numbers, compared to competitive products, and enables us to manage all of our data with relative ease and with minimal administration and maintenance expense,” explained Mehrdad Komeili, Simple Technology’s MIS Director.
“NetFORCE’s scalable and flexible architecture not only gives us quick, easy access to the exact information we need, but also allows us to minimize network traffic over the WAN by having smaller NAS appliances placed in separate buildings and locations instead of one large central server,” Komeili added.
The NetFORCE 1500 is also helping to expedite Simple Technology’s expansion into new and emerging memory and Flash applications such as digital cameras, MP3 digital audio plays, PDAs and various Internet devices.
Simple Technology is an independent provider of standard and custom memory solutions, with products based on dynamic random access memory (DRAM), static random access memory (SRAM) and Flash memory technologies. Simple Technology designs, manufactures, and markets a comprehensive line of over 2,500 memory, storage and connectivity products used in high performance computing, networking and communications, consumer electronics and industrial applications.
Procom Technology is a pioneer in the development of network attached storage (NAS) products and technology. The Company has leveraged its position as market leader in CD-caching appliances to address the disk-based needs of workgroup and enterprise applications, including ISP’s and e-business.
