STEC Inc.'s Linux-Based SSD Solutions

We Linuxers always are happy to see new vendors embrace the Linux and open-source paradigm. STEC Inc. is also finding much more to like than it ever imagined after recently developing Linux drivers for its PCI Express-based solid-state drives. STEC reports that coupling the new open-source Linux with the company's high-performance s1120 PCIe Accelerator SSD card dramatically broadens the range of applications for the device. Furthermore, the combination results in "very promising performance results never seen before", such as a boost to Oracle application performance to more than 160,000 transactions per minute. Other improvements include an improvement in application response times by maximizing I/Os per second on a single server and a lower TCO by reducing data-center operational and capital expenditures.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
