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.
