"Texas Memory Systems Brings RamSan High Performance and High Reliability
 to eMLC Applications"
 August 23, 2011

  "The RamSan-810 leverages 33 years of design expertise in record-setting
   performance and reliability for the eMLC Flash storage market. It packs
   10 Terabytes into a 1U enclosure with 4-GB/s bandwidth and 320K random
   IOPS. For read-heavy enterprise applications, the RamSan-810 offers
   Tier-0 performance and reliability at Tier-1 prices."

  "... The 10 TB RamSan-810 has powerful 8-Gb Fibre Channel or
   QDR InfiniBand interfaces and dissipates only 250 W."

  "Reliability of the RamSan-810 is enhanced by the TMS Series-7 Flash
   Controller (FPGA, PowerPC based) that utilizes an advanced error
   correction algorithm and patented Variable Stripe Raid (VSR) algorithm.
   VSR automatically bypasses failing chips and is only available from
   TMS. The RamSan-810 is rated for a 10-year life with a 50-TB/day write
   workload. With the extra TMS reliability features found in
   the Series-7 Flash Controller, TMS Flash products simply outlast
   the competition."


  Expansion Slots: 2 slots
  Fibre Channel Ports per Card: 2 ports/card
  Fibre Channel Speed per Port: 8 Gb/s
  InfiniBand Channel Width: 4 links
  InfiniBand Channels per Card: 2 channels/card
  InfiniBand Data Rate Standard: QDR
  InfiniBand Speed per Channel: 40 Gb/s
