July 16, 2013

TAIPEI, Taiwan and SANTA ANA, Calif., USA -- July 16, 2013 – Infortrend® (Public TPE: 2495) and sTec, Inc. (NASDAQ: STEC) today announced that sTec® s842 Enterprise SAS solid-state drives (SSDs) are fully compatible and ready to provide extreme performance to Infortrend’s landmark 16G Fibre Channel (FC) storage systems, enabling users to meet the requirements of mission-critical, throughput-intensive applications.

Built upon the award-winning EonStor DS G7i platform, Infortrend’s new 16G FC models provide a massive boost by doubling throughput and providing superior IOPS to its 8G predecessor, while sTec’s s842 Enterprise SAS SSDs take capacity, performance and endurance to the next level to deliver the highest levels of performance. When fully integrated with Infortrend’s 16G FC models, sTec’s next-generation s842 SAS SSDs can deliver end-to-end 4k random IOPs of 350k read and 150k write performances*. These performance levels, decreased latency and 30% less power usage from an all-SSD array are an ideal choice for enterprises seeking a no-compromise solution for time- and mission-critical applications such as those prevalent in high-performance computing, telecommunications and in the financial sector. 

"sTec continues to have a strong working relationship with Infortrend to provide solid-state storage solutions that deliver the performance and data reliability demanded by today’s enterprise systems,” said Bryan Chen, vice president of sales for Greater China, sTec. “The validated compatibility of Infortrend's 16G FC storage with our SAS SSDs provides enterprises with the perfect choice to build ultra-fast and ultra-reliable storage systems to power their performance-demanding and mission-critical applications.”

Thomas Kao, senior director of product planning at Infortrend, stated “Infortrend's 16G FC storage solutions were built to provide users with the highest possible performance, and by employing SSDs such as sTec's SAS they can achieve just that. We fully appreciate the support from industry-leaders such as sTec in developing proven SSD solutions for high-performance storage solutions as it provides our users with the means to allow their 16G storage to reach its full potential.”
