Solid Data Systems, Inc., maker of solid state file-caching solutions, announced it has doubled the capacity of its family of file-caching appliances. By adopting new Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM) chip technology, Solid Data, located in Santa Clara, Calif., is now offering twice the capacity in its solid-state file cache appliances packed into the same form factor at a lower price.
Solid Data has put chips with twice as much memory in the same space as the previous line of solid state storage devices. The new line offers capacities ranging from 0.5G Bytes to 34G Bytes per system. The upgrade includes the recently released, 1U-high Excellerator e-100 which boasts 0.5 - 2G Bytes of capacity in a 3.75" unit aimed at entry-level environments.
Solid Data's Excellerator product line consists of self-contained, SDRAM-based file-caching appliances that enable users to multiply performance and scalability in I/O-intensive applications. The Excellerator family is designed to eliminate I/O bottlenecks in transaction-intensive applications, such as e-mail, wireless messaging and e-business databases.
Solid Data's double-capacity model 600, 800 and 1000 configurations are available today, while the e-100 will be generally available in production volumes by September 15.
